One of the best-kept secrets in Canada, the most populous community within 150 kilometers in any direction, and the northernmost road accessible community in Manitoba, Lynn Lake is centrally located as a service hub for the region. The region has proven nickel, copper, gold, and zinc reserves from previous mines. Lynn Lake and its vast outlying area continues to catch the eye of exploration companies that return year after year to survey and drill core samples, including uranium to the north. Alamos Gold’s prospective Lynn Lake project boasts “Lynn Lake represents a significant opportunity as one of the highest grade open pit gold deposits in Canada with excellent infrastructure already in place.” Indeed, with Lynn Lake’s hospital, school, arena, airport with a terminal, hangars, and 5000 ft. runway, accommodations, restaurants, retail establishments, all season road, dozens of empty commercial and residential lots owned by the town with hydro-electric, sewer, and communications infrastructure intact, Lynn Lake is equipped to welcome all manner of new developments to the area. In addition to Lynn Lake’s mining prospects, infrastructure, and rich history, what keeps people in Lynn Lake is its natural beauty and abundance of outdoor opportunities. Residents are minutes away from ice fishing during the winter via snowmobile, and minutes away from the best sport fishing the country has to offer in the summer. Whether hunting, fishing, or canoeing, lodges throughout the region offer a range of services with road-accessible campgrounds and boat launches. Guided by a sense of adventure, Lynn Lake is a small yet diverse, close-knit yet welcoming community in a vast territory still rich in untapped resources.
Manitoba’s mineral advantage include the province’s natural mineral endowments, security of land tenure, an efficient permitting and approvals process, electronic access to valuable geo science data and a government committed to promoting mineral development through focused fiscal and taxation incentives.
