The Yukon Mineral Exploration Program promotes and enhances mineral prospecting and exploration activities in Yukon. It provides a portion of the risk capital required to locate, explore and develop mineral projects to an advanced exploration stage. Applicants are invited to submit prospecting and exploration proposals. We encourage you to consult with our mineral development geologist, Derek Torgerson.
For the 2017-18 fiscal year, the funding level is $1,600,000.
Applications are accepted for both hard rock exploration projects (under one of three modules: Grassroots Prospecting, Focused Regional or Target Evaluation) and placer exploration projects (under new Placer Module).
