Due to the longstanding history of mining in Northern Manitoba and Lynn Lake in particular, most of the infrastructure that supported prior operations is still intact and available for the next generation of mining in Lynn Lake.
Lynn Lake hosts a functioning Railroad Line, as well as a 6000 ft. Paved Airport operated by NAV Canada. In addition, there is a Post Office, RCMP Detachment, Two Hotels, Two Restaurants, High School and a 42 bed Hospital with Medical Clinic. Lynn Lake also has the lowest cost power in Canada ($0.024/kWh), with excess capacity available. The town has a population of approximately 800 residents.
Access to the MacLellan Property, located approximately 9 km northeast of the mining town of Lynn Lake, is by an all-weather gravel road, the MacLellan Mine road, running to the mine site. Lynn Lake is an established mining community connected by an all-weather road, Highway 391, to Leaf Rapids (105 km east) and Thompson, Manitoba (315 km southeast). Perimeter Airlines maintains a regular air schedule into Lynn Lake while Bearskin Airlines offers a seasonal air service and Lynn Lake Air Service provides charter air services. Lynn Lake is also serviced by a railroad which extends south to Flin Flon, Manitoba, and from there, to the rest of Canada.
The MacLellan Property includes road access, power line, headframe, hoist house and shaft to 448 m with 5 levels, ramp access from surface to 420 m below, maintenance building, core shack, vent raise, mine water settling ponds, and other mine infrastructure. As well, the Burnt Timber and Farley Lake Deposits host year round road access with Last Hope accessible by winter road.
The vegetation in the Lynn Lake area is typical of northern Manitoba. Most of the area is covered by northern boreal forest, consisting chiefly of jack pine, black spruce and balsam with a few stands of birch and poplar. The MacLellan Property has patches of northern boreal forest around the mine infrastructure buildings, mine tailings and waste rock piles but for the most part, has been levelled by waste rock, tailings and gravel sand material. The relief is low lying, consisting of scattered marsh or moss covered swampy areas.
Lynn Lake has an annual average temperature of -3°C. The average summer temperature is 22°C with an average winter temperature of -20°C. Annual precipitation averages approximately 530 mm.
