The Yukon Gold Mining Alliance (YGMA) is a non-profit industry association with a current membership of six companies working in Yukon mineral exploration and development. The YGMA's goals include:
To liaise between the mining industry and financing sources
To work together to promote awareness of and strengthen investment in member companies and the Yukon
To collectively identify a group of established companies which are committed to mineral exploration and development in the Yukon
All member companies must have known resources and significant identified project expenditures in the Yukon. A company must have established 43-101 resources or must have spent $2.5 million in drilling programs in the Yukon in five of the last seven years. Companies must also adopt and adhere to a corporate sustainability policy including community relations, environmental responsibility and labour relations.
