    Location of centre points of Yukon aerial photographs. Data was produced from heads up digitization of paper flightline index maps

    This feature displays annotation codes for easy display of vegetation inventory polygons. Used in conjunction with the data set for Vegetation Inventory Poly 40K, this dataset shows labels describing the contents of each forest inventory polygon. The annotation is at a fixed scale, and is designed to be optimally displayed at a 1:50:000 scale.

    Yukon parks and protected areas captured from DCW 1:1,000,000 scale dataset. Boundaries were generalized from survey information captured by Legal Survey Division of Natural Resources Canada (NRCan).

    /KFN-WRFN Overlap Resolution Boundary/ means the boundary which, for the purposes of Settlement Agreements, eliminates the KFN-WRFN Overlapping Area.

    The Adaptive Management Framework for Yukon placer mining is complemented by traditional knowledge and monitoring of water quality objectives, aquatic health, and economic health.The aquatic Health monitoring program is governed by the Aquatic Health Monitoring Protocol.The Protocol describes the locations, timing, frequency and methods employed duringsampling, as well as the methods used to analyze sampling data. The Reference ConditionApproach (RCA) is the method chosen for assessing the health of freshwater ecosystems inthe Yukon. One RCA model was developed for bioassessment based upon benthicmacroinvertebrates, and a second model was developed to assess the diversity of fishspecies.The RCA model for invertebrates relies upon 224 reference sites collected over the period 2004 to 2010 by the University of Western Ontario, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, and theYukon government, using the same standard protocol. The invertebrate data set was analyzedat the family level.There are two fundamental steps in the process of developing the predictive model. The first isto classify the reference sites based on their biological characteristics. This requires defining anumber of community types based on the taxonomic composition. The second step is todetermine a subset of habitat attributes that are associated with those community types.Following this step the number and type of organisms expected to occur at any given site canbe determined from habitat attributes.For more information, contact the Yukon Placer Secretariat

    The Yukon Territory is underlain by a great variety of rock types ranging in age from Early Proterozoic to Recent and representing diverse environments including epicratonic basins, subsiding shelves, foreland basins, island arcs and deep ocean basins. Episodes of compressional and extensional deformation, transcurrent faulting, metamorphism and plutonism further complicate the map pattern. This complex geological record has been described in terms of the interactions of several terranes (large parts of the earth's crust which preserve a common geological record) with each other and with the margin of ancestral North America.

    A placer claim is a parcel of land located or granted for placer mining. A claim also includes any ditches or water rights used for mining the claim and all other things belonging to or used in the working of the claim for mining purposes. A placer claim is a rectangular plot of ground. All angles of a claim must be right angles, except in the cases where a boundary line of a previously located claim is adopted as common to both locations. The length of a regular placer claim from post one to post two is 500 feet along a baseline. Co-discovery claims must not exceed 1250 feet each and single discovery claims must not exceed 1500 feet. The Placer Mining Act is available at http://www.gov.yk.ca/legislation/acts/plmi.pdf Visit http://www.emr.gov.yk.ca/mining/placermining.html for detail on how to stake, record and maintain a Placer Claim.

    The field plots were used to help during the photo interpretation process. The plots provided essential information to interpreters to relate photo observed attributes with field measurements. The use of ground-truthing (field plots) to cross check the accuracy of the aerial photography data is a common method.
