40.94 Acres

Property Description





A Prime hunting property located midway between the City of Timmins to the west and the Town of Matheson to the east.

A total of 40.94 acres that has access to thousands of acres of crown land.

This is a nice property that has mostly sand and gravel and any trails you want to make on your property will be relatively easy to make.

Good road access as you can drive to this property in a car if you wish.





The property is in a “Resource Development Area”and is zoned “MINERAL EXTRACTION (RD-MX).  It isn't suitable for a recreational cottage, and the City of Timmins won’t issue a building permit for one.

You can build yourself a small storage shed to keep and store your toys in.

There is currently a 10 x 10 shed on the property.  When the previous owner was building this shed you could build this size of shed without a building permit.

In the summer of 2022 the Ontario Building Code increased the allowable ‘non-permit’ size for sheds from 108 square feet to 160 square feet. If your backyard shed, garden shed, or storage shed is less than 160 square feet (or 15 square meters) you can construct it WITHOUT a building permit.



The current owner has seen plenty of bear signs and moose tracks along the road within the property.

Locals have also told us that they have seen deer in the area as well.

Plenty of small game such as grouse and rabbits.

USE this property as your stepping stone to hunt further south along the Gibson Lake Road.

The road goes on for a good distance and there are literally tens of thousands of acres of Crown Lands to hunt and explore on.

Located in Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) 29.


You can hunt on your property and then go fishing on the very close and nearby lakes.

Did you know that there are 3 lakes within a 5 to 10 minute WALKING DISTANCE and there are over 12 lakes within a 5 to 15 minute DRIVE of this property?


There is an ATV trail near the northern line of the property that starts on the road and goes west about 600 feet right to the shore of a small lake called DEEP LAKE.

A review of the MNR “Fish On Line” web site shows that Deep Lake has a maximum depth of 5.2 meters or just over 17 feet and an average depth of 2.2 meters or about 7 ½ feet.

The site tells us that this lake is and has been stocked with BROOK TROUT.

Yearling Brook Trout were stocked in 2014, 2016 and 2018.


The mature trees were harvested roughly 15 years ago.   Anything that wasn’t big enough to harvest at that time is now 15 years older and bigger.


Because this location is mostly sand and gravel it is prime blueberry country and there are plenty of them in this area.

Blueberries everywhere you look and also wild raspberries.

Good mushroom country too if you like and know what mushrooms to pick.


What can you do with this property?

Well, first, IT’S AN INVESTMENT.

GO HUNTING on the property and use it as a base area to go fishing from.
