Mining Inspection Division Water Quality Database - Yukon, Canada
Entry ID: CANEMRCCRSWATERDATA


Summary
Abstract: This dataset includes water quantities used in placer mining operation and data
on the effluent water quality of placer mining operations. Coverage is the
Yukon Territory in Canada.

The database is updated annually and will increase by the number of
active placer mines in each year.The data is used to identify water used in
placer mining on an individual, stream or drainage area basis. Placer mining
effluents may also be arrayed on an individual project, stream or drainage area
basis. The data could also be used to determine the effect of placer mining on
fish an fish habitat.
