Developing research leadership in the mining industry.
Yukon Colleges works closely with representatives of the Yukon mining industry to address northern specific challenges and opportunities. The mining companies of the Consortium include Alexco Resources, Capstone Mining Corp., Casino Mining Corp., Selwyn Chihong Mining Ltd., and Victoria Gold Corp. The Consortium have committed their full support to guiding the direction of the program by determining industry -related challenges that would benefit from applied research solutions to include:
- Management and treatment of mine-influenced water, and
- Terrestrial reclamation practices.
Yukon College works in partnership with the Consortium to generate and share knowledge and results publicly to industry, government, First Nations, and the scientific community at large.
