Brave new north

The item is a video copy of a promotional film. It shows mining in the Yukon, yesterday and today, and the importance of the White Pass and Yukon Railway as a transportation system. Shows the development and start-up of the Anvil Mine, a lead-zinc mine on the Ross River; its impact on the port of Skagway and the upgrading of transport infrastructure. The first shipment of ore travels by truck to Whitehorse, by rail to Skagway, and by ship to world markets.
