This course traces the industry from grassroots mineral exploration through to the processing and marketing of mining products, with guest speakers contributing their diverse knowledge in these areas. The environmental impact of mining and sustainable mining techniques will be introduced, as well as the monitoring and remediation techniques that follow mine closure. This course also provides an introduction to First Nations in the Yukon and the history, land agreements, and regulations that influence their relationship with the mining industry. Geology 112 serves as a foundation for subsequent mining-specific courses that require a base-level of understanding concerning the industry.
