Permitting and Regulatory Issues – Important Notice

Heritage Resource Overview & Impact Assessments

There are a number of proponents who are finding that undertaking a Heritage Resource Impact Assessment or Heritage Resource Overview Assessment are condition of their license. The Chair of the Land Access & Regulatory Affairs Committee & Executive Director recently met with officials from the Yukon Government from both Energy, Mines & Resources as well as the Archelogy branch of Tourism & Culture. In this meeting, we were informed that if anyone is experiencing a hardship due to this condition, to contact the Archeology department directly to discuss this term of your license. They may make exception or vary this condition depending on the project specifics.

If you have any permitting issues that are causing hardship or have been introduced with no prior notification, please feel free to contact us here at the office to share your concerns.  667-2090 or policy.analyst@yukonminers.ca
