About Us

The KPMA was established in 1974 by 56 placer miners who gathered in Dawson City to promote and protect the interests of their industry.

Since that time, the KPMA has flourished and includes almost 100 family-owned and operated placer mines across several treasure-laden regions of the territory. We are a member-driven, non-profit advocacy group that continues to advance the Yukon's placer mining industry on all fronts.



Your membership and support of the KPMA is integral to the continued health of the territory's placer industry. In addition to effective promotion, advocacy and education, membership lends benefits such as access to specialized training opportunities.

The KPMA also acknowledges and appreciates the many service and supply businesses – big and small - who are members that support our work, our industry and its substantial contributions to the Yukon economy.
