Mineral Occurrences

Interactive Mineral Occurrences Map

The Yukon Geological Survey has compiled a comprehensive database of mineral occurrences in the territory. If any of these occurrences occur near geochemical targets, their descriptions can provide the explorer with information relevant to the target assessment.

All of the MineMatch® descriptions of targets identified in this project include references to all mineral occurrences falling within the boundary of the target. All these references are hyperlinked to the online YGS Mineral Occurrences Database - greatly improving the speed with which targets close to known mineral occurrences may be evaluated (example shown below).

To access the occurrence information, click on a mineral occurrence in the map to the left and follow the hyperlink.
