Founded in 2009, Yukon Mining Alliance (“YMA”), a strategic industry alliance of Yukon’s leading exploration, development and mining companies, is focused on creating innovative capital attraction initiatives to promote Yukon’s competitive advantages as a top mineral investment jurisdiction and its member companies and their Yukon-based projects.

All member companies must have identified resources and significant project expenditures in Yukon; as well as, adopt and adhere to a corporate sustainability policy including community relations, environmental responsibility and labour relations.

YMA’s initiatives include international “investment focused” roadshows, conferences, events and campaigns in the North American, European and Asian financial markets. Senior representatives from Government of Yukon support and participate in these targeted activities, delivering the message that Yukon has a unique competitive advantage as a politically stable and mining-friendly jurisdiction. Funded largely by the member companies, YMA also receives financial assistance from Government of Yukon.
