The west-central part of the Yukon and eastern Alaska are referred to as the Yukon-Tanana Terrane, with the Yukon part described as the Yukon Plateau. This is an area which has had a complex geological history and historically been known as an important placer gold producing area. Currently the Minto copper mine is the only producing deposit with the area, although there was important lode gold, VMS and porphyry style deposits under examination. Mapping is not easy as there is extensive regolithic cover in this area than other parts of the Yukon due to the lack of major glaciation. To facilitate the better understanding of the geology and economic potential of the area, the Geological Survey of Canada in conjunction with the Yukon Geological Survey has carried out a series of airborne geophysical surveys over the area. These results along with the historic mapping and company data available via assessment forms the core geoscience cover for the area.
