The Yukon is divided into four mining districts with respective Mining Recorders in Watson Lake, Whitehorse, Mayo and Dawson City. These offices provide staking guidelines, information sheets, assistance, and information on ground open for staking. When an individual is entertaining the idea of staking a piece of ground, it is always beneficial to visit the district office first and familiarize oneself with the current legislation and regulations, and talk with the staff at the Mining Recorder's office. Our aim is to provide you with all the information you require and to assist you in any way we can.
