Contwoyto Lake

There is an abandoned gold mine on the shore of Contwoyto Lake, Nunavut, called Lupin mine, that used to house around 500 employees.  It was so big that it had it’s own jet airplane rotating employees in and out of Edmonton multiple times a week.  Here are a couple photo galleries of what the mine looks like now that it is quiet, as well and the local inhabitants who are traveling south for the winter.
