Prospectors have been seeking precious metals from this area since the 1960's. Now, a new group believes there are more riches to be found. So far, three gold deposits have been discovered in the greenstone belt; the rocks that typically host gold and base metals are a dark green colour.
- Kugluk/Bloody Falls Territorial Park, Nunavut
Kugluk Territorial Park, bordering the banks of the Coppermine River, commemorates a dark day in Copper Inuit history; some Chipewyans crept down from upriver in 1771 and massacred a group of Inuit while they were camped at a cascade. Samuel Hearne, who was with them, reported the massacre in his travel journal. This turbulent part of the Coppermine became known as Bloody Falls. Today, residents like Allan Niptanatiak still rely on the river for Arctic char. He shows the traditional method of hanging and drying fish.
