Matt and Lesley kick-off AME’s Roundup 2017 with a Geology Corner focused on B.C. and Yukon geology, including the formation of orogenic gold deposits, porphyry systems, and the similarities between the Barkerville and Klondike gold camps!
Meanwhile, Matt sits down with Yukon Mining Alliance chair Paul West-Sells, also president and CEO of Western Copper and Gold (TSX: WRN; NYSE-MKT: WRN), to chat about the entrance of majors Goldcorp (TSX: G; NYSE: GG) and Agnico Eagle Mines (TSX: AEM; NYSE: AEM) into the territory. We also tackle the topics of the new Liberal government in the Yukon and how the jurisdiction is shaping up this year.
Bonus: Geoscience B.C. is set to release results from its Search II Project – the largest airborne geophysical survey conducted in Canada in 2016.
