In the spring I was hired to help on a large scale placer exploration program in the Yukon. The property is located in a part of the Yukon where very little placer activity has taken place. We had a small team of three guys and a lot of equipment. The Yukon, like BC and Alaska, was explored and settled by prospectors in the late s.

The abandoned mine lands assessment involved the collection and analysis of data from mine sites in the North Yuba Watershed.

Two-person crews visited each site, gathering accurate location data and noting the physical layout and current conditions of each mine feature. Where appropriate, soil samples were taken and basic water tests performed.

Five placer grains of Pt-Fe alloy, ca. to 2 mm, roundish in shape, and hitherto unconfirmed from this locality, were recovered from a placer deposit in Burwash Creek, Kluane area, Yukon.
