Abandoned Mines in the Yukon: The Financial Picture

Join YCS mining analyst Lewis Rifkind for an informative presentation about the financial impacts of abandoned mines in the Yukon. This presentation is focused on financial, not environmental, impacts - what happens when a mining company can't pay the bills? Who's on the hook for the cleanup? Which Yukon mines are currently abandoned or in danger of it? And what can concerned citizens do?

This is a free talk in the Whitehorse Public Library meeting room. The venue is wheelchair-accessible.
