Yukon mining 2011: Extracting value


Mining exploration, development, and production activity in Yukon soared in 2011. Exploration and drilling activity, commercial production, revenue, and taxation figures all showed dramatic increases over the prior year. But much has changed. While the numbers show significant growth, it is important to look forward to understand how that growth is expected to continue.

Yukon must be prepared to embrace its new position on the global stage as an emerging area for the identification and development of significant new mining projects. In order to advance projects on schedule, all stakeholders need to collaborate to ensure that additional sustainable infrastructure is developed, that the environment is protected for future generations and that residents clearly understand the long-term benefit associated with mining activity in Yukon.

To that end, Extracting value – Yukon mining 2011 analyzes key statistics on Yukon mining activity for 2009 and 2010, and presents the results of a survey of mining company CEOs whose organizations are currently operating in the territory. The CEO survey was conducted to gain insight into the industry’s own business outlook as well as some of the biggest challenges currently facing Yukon exploration, development and production. Coupled with the insights of Deloitte’s Mining practitioners in Vancouver, the report identifies the key strengths, opportunities and hurdles to overcome for all stakeholders in the future of Yukon mining.
