WHAT WE DO

The Yukon Chamber of Mines represents a dynamic membership and since its creation almost 70 years ago, has worked to serve its valued members and advance the interests of all those involved in the Yukon mining industry. Membership has burgeoned over the years from a dozen founding members in 1943 to more than 400 today. This strong and diverse group includes exploration, mining and service and supply companies, contractors and individuals that have a direct or indirect interest in the mining industry.

In 2009, Yukon mining and exploration directly contributed over $200 million to the territory’s economy, while providing jobs, training opportunities and positive social impacts – particularly in Yukon rural communities.

Significant discoveries and newly-opened mines and a commitment to responsibility place the Yukon at the forefront of the mining industry. As the trusted voice of mining, the Yukon Chamber of Mines thrives on the government, community, First Nation and individual partnerships it forges to help facilitate an environment of responsible development – one in which its members can continue to contribute and prosper.

We want to again thank all those who attended our Copper Belt Field tour during Yukon Mining & Geology Week, in partnership with the Yukon Geological Survey.

Participants were educated about the history of the area. One of the most fascinating parts of the tour is the opportunity to learn about the variety of minerals prevalent in the area, and gain a better understanding of the rocks beneath their feet.
