Coppermine River

The Coppermine River

  • Spectacular tundra hiking and wildflowers
  • Home to muskox, caribou, wolves and raptors
  • Human habitation of the river valley for at least 3000 years
  • First explored by Samuel Herne for the Hudson’s Bay Company in 1771

The Coppermine River has been proposed as a Canadian Heritage River because of its rich cultural history, natural significance and diverse recreational opportunities. The Coppermine is named for the mineral copper, which can be found in nugget form along the lower stretches of the river’s banks. Copper continues to be used by the local Inuit (also known as Copper Inuit), to fashion tools.
