The Yukon territorial government is recognizing a mineral exploration company that operates east of Mayo for its exemplary site cleanup.

Snowline Gold received the 2023 Robert E. Leckie Award for Excellence in Environmental Stewardship at the 51st Annual Geoscience Forum and Trade Show banquet. The annual forum was held Nov. 19 to 22.
