The SURFACE RIGHTS COME WITH THIS PROPERTY

Even though you don’t own the mining rights that is NOT a bad thing!
Think about this, with all the new environmental laws in place today do you really think that any mining can take place along a river like the Porcupine River?
Especially when the property embraces both sides of this river?
I don’t think so!
Besides which this property is not big enough to do any mining on.
If a mine would ever be established next door to this property then they would want to buy you out and pay you big bucks for your property.

You can fish on the river along your property lines and you can fish all the way to NightHawk Lake to the east.

SOME FUN FACTS ABOUT BEARS
Don’t wear socks with sandals in the bush.
Especially thick socks, as they will cause friction, resulting in a fire that cooks the wearer’s feet and causes them to smell like hot dogs, thereby attracting bears.
Don’t wear UGGS.
Bears will see your big, brown, fuzzy, round feet and assume that you are mocking them.
Bears hate being mocked.
