Precious Metals Summit provides promotional opportunities

WHITEHORSE—Premier Darrell Pasloski and representatives of the Yukon Mining Alliance are promoting the territory’s investment opportunities at the Precious Metals Summit held in Beaver Creek, Colorado from September 16 to 18.

“This summit provides international investors and mineral industry specialists with the opportunity to learn about Yukon’s mineral industry,” Pasloski said. “While the current market’s softening metal prices have affected the global mining sector, we continue to prepare for the future by promoting Yukon’s mineral resources and companies at these events.”

The Precious Metals Summit is an equities conference attended by institutional investors and fund managers. Participants attend corporate presentations by prospective precious metals explorers, developers and emerging producers, and have opportunities for networking and one-on-one meetings.

Members of the Yukon Mining Alliance attending the summit include ATAC Resources, Kaminak Gold Corporation, Rockhaven Resources Ltd., Wellgreen Platinum Ltd., Western Copper and Gold, and Victoria Gold Corporation.

“The Government of Yukon’s partnership with the Yukon Mining Alliance is an integral component of our current Investment Attraction Strategy,” Minister of Economic Development Stacey Hassard said. “Together we will actively inform investors about Yukon’s world-class mineral endowment and the investment opportunity these resources hold.”

The Government of Yukon’s marketing and promotion initiatives include attendance at events that focus on investment promotion opportunities to attract investment and expand Yukon’s exports.
