Not only is the Yukon Gold Explorer’s Passport program a unique way to tour the territory and get to know Yukon history and culture, it’s your chance to win some genuine Klondike placer gold without, as Service might say, moiling through the muck.
From June through to the end of August, visit the participating sites, including museums, interpretive centres and others, and get your passport stamped.
Collect 20 or more stamps for your chance to win 5 troy ounces of Klondike placer gold. Collect 10 or more for your chance to win 2 troy ounces of Klondike placer gold. Collect four from the featured sites – Binet House Interpretive Centre, Campbell Region Interpretive Centre, Keno City Mining Museum and John Tizya Centre – to enter on-site draws for 1 troy ounce of Klondike gold.
