With gold and silver prices on the rise, mining companies are in a better position to look for future growth opportunities, and Yukon’s Premier Hon. Darrell Pasloski says Canada’s northern territory may be a good place to start. Speaking with Kitco News at the PDAC convention in Toronto, Pasloski said he wants delegates to understand the ‘tremendous potential’ Yukon has for the mining sector. ‘The Fraser Institute says Yukon has the highest mineral potential in the world,’ he noted, adding that his focus will be on investing in infrastructure in order to develop further mining projects in the region. A few projects in the pipeline the Premier highlighted include Victoria Gold’s Eagle project as well as Western Copper & Gold’s Casino project.
