Kirkland Lake, Ontario, Canada

Kirkland Lake, Ont, incorporated as a town in 1972... The Town of Kirkland Lake is located 241 km northwest of North Bay. Named after a secretary in the Ontario Department of Mines, Winnifred Kirkland, the lake around which the town grew has been filled with the tailings of the GOLD mines that brought the town to prominence. Sir Harry OAKES was not the first prospector into the district in the summer of 1911, but he and others such as Bill Wright and the Tough brothers were responsible for discovering and developing the gold mines (Lake Shore, Wright Hargreaves, Kirkland Minerals) that were the basis for the town's growth and prosperity during the 1920s and 1930s.
