Summary

In the Yukon Territory and District of Mackenzie, coal-bearing strata, ranging in age from Mississippian to Oligocene, have been found in some 27 areas. In the Yukon, such rocks underlie 37,000 km2, while in the District of Mackenzie, 3000 km2 are believed to contain coal in the Brackett Basin alone, with additional potential in the Liard River, Godlin Lake and Great Bear Lake areas. The three most important basins are the Whitehorse Trough and Bonnet Plume Basin in the Yukon Territory and the Brackett Basin in the District of Mackenzie. In the Whitehorse Trough, coal exploration has been carried out at Mount Granger near Whitehorse and at Division Mountain, west of Braeburn. Coal mining has been actively carried on at Carmacks and [...]
