This week we’re talking infrastructure! The show will focus on the Sept. 2 announcement of the $360-million Yukon Resource Gateway Project. The joint federal and territorial initiative is designed to “improve road access in two mineral-rich areas: the Dawson Range in central Yukon and the Nahanni Range Road in southeastern Yukon.” The project will reportedly upgrade “over 650 km” of road and build or replace numerous bridges, culverts and stream crossings.

We’re joined by the Yukon Mining Alliance chair, as well as president and CEO of Western Copper and Gold (TSX: WRN; NYSE-MKT: WRN), Paul West-Sells, to discuss the funding process and what the project could mean for mineral exploration and development in the territory. We discuss Goldcorp‘s (TSX: G; NYSE: GG) Coffee project and the impact of major mining investment.

Meanwhile, Matt digs into a few eye-catching headlines that came across the news wire recently, including new drill intercepts from GT Gold‘s (TSXV: GTT; US-OTC: GTGDF) emerging Saddle South discovery in B.C., and Kirkland Lake Gold‘s (TSX: KL; NYSE: KL) strategic investment in Australia-focused explorer Novo Resources (TSXV: NVO; USOTC: NSRPF).
