GeoYukon
Government of Yukon's map viewer with many selectable overlays. It runs in a web browser and includes high-resolution satellite photos for some areas, especially around Whitehorse. These are different and often better than those found on Google. GeoYukon also includes aerial photographs, mining data, land use information, and lots more. To view bare-earth lidar (elevation) data for Whitehorse, the Communities, and along highways, select the Basemap → Elevation layer.

Survey plans: CLSS Map Browser
Official survey plans from Natural Resources Canada. This is a good resource for finding old mining claims, which were surveyed, if you can find them on map. This may take some patience because newer surveys overlie older ones on the map. The general process is to find the number on the map and then search for that number with the search function. Note that modern mineral claims are just staked, not surveyed, so they don't appear here. See the mining layers on GeoYukon above for modern mineral claims.

Survey plans: search
Official survey plans from Natural Resources Canada. This is an alternate method that does not have the map interface of the CLSS Map Browser above. The search tools are more powerful if you have some name/number information of what you're looking for.
