(5/5 based on 10 reviews for 1 attraction)
Things to do: parks
Snow Lake is a town in Manitoba, Canada, located 685 km north of Winnipeg at the end of Provincial Road 392. The main industry is, and always has been, mining; currently with one mine producing Zinc. In late 2009, it was discovered that the Snow Lake area could have one of the largest gold-rich VMS deposits in Canada. The official Town of Snow Lake is a very large, overwhelmingly rural area that is centered about the urban community of Snow Lake, which lies very near its geographical center. The Town is as large in area as a typical rural municipality in the more southern parts of Manitoba.MiningMining is currently, and always has been, Snow Lake's major industry. Two separate mining ventures have operated in the community over the past 40 years. TVX/Kinross/High River operated the New Britannia Mine, which closed in January 2005, and HudBay Minerals, which operated 12 area mines. They were/are Lalor Mine, Chisel Lake, Stall Lake, Osborne Lake, Dickstone, Anderson Lake, Ghost Lake, Lost Lake, Spruce Point, Rod Mine, Photo Lake, and Chisel North.In recent years, the New Britannia Mine employed the majority of the town's population; however, its January 2005 closure caused a sudden drop in population. HudBay Minerals is now the community's major employer and has recently announced the discovery of a new world-class gold-zinc property, Lalor Lake.TourismNature lovers will delight in the numerous species of birds, animals and vegetation found along the region's many area hiking trails. Picking strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, or gooseberries is also a favourite summer pastime. History enthusiasts can explore ancient Aboriginal pictographs that are approximately 1500 years old.
