YukonWIM Buy Local Grand Prizes

In light of the challenges facing Yukon’s mining and private sector, and because they are generous contributors to our community whenever we ask, we decided to give back to them this year by BUYING LOCAL rather than requesting SPONSORSHIP.

100% of our supplies and contest prizes were bought in YUKON!

Since 2012, we have received generous support from our membership, comprising of Yukon’s mineral explorers, developers and miners, the supply service sector that works with them, and various departments in the Government of Yukon. We are proud to use these resources and project funding for Yukon businesses and Yukoners.
