Placer Mining Guidebook

This guide is intended to provide users with up-to-date information about best management practices for heritage resources the Yukon Landscape but these guidelines should not be considered as comprehensive. There are both known and unknown sources of data which have not yet been incorporated and topics which have not yet been treated or addressed.

These topics and data will be incorporated and new versions of the documents uploaded as time and resources permit. By their very nature many specific BMPs soon become obsolete as “better” BMPs become available but the concept and the identified objectives behind the examples remain valid.
