Yukon gold is getting a lot of attention these days—and we’re not talking potatoes. Shawn Ryan’s White Gold discovery in 2003 has spurred a flurry of exploration activity that has presented extremely encouraging drill results. Copper, lead, zinc and silver are among the other minerals being actively mined in the Yukon, and uranium is also an important resource.
