Excellence in Environmental Stewardship - Placer: Ben Warnsby and Alex Seely

With recently acquired claims in the Dawson mining district, Mr. Warnsby and Mr. Seely addressed several unresolved environmental issues from earlier mining practices, including the removal of approximately 10,000 litres of fuel contained in degrading 45 gallon drums.

This dedication to site reclamation exceeds expectations and demonstrates exemplary environmental stewardship, benefitting the environment and setting an example for others to follow.


Excellence in Environmental Stewardship - Quartz: Regent Ventures Ltd.

Regent Ventures operates on the Red Mountain property, east of Dawson City. The company reclaimed several historically disturbed sites along their access route, removed an old placer camp, including structures, garbage and fuel drums, and reclaimed the area. At a nearby airstrip, they removed garbage and empty fuel drums from multiple users.

This dedication to site reclamation exceeds expectations and demonstrates exemplary environmental stewardship, benefitting the environment and setting an example for others to follow.
