Location of Pyrite Quarry near Inuvik

Posted by Doug Miller

I am in Inuvik for a week or so. I may have some time to do a bit of collecting and would like to go to the local quarry where the calcite and pyrite specimens can be found. The only information that I have is that it south of the airport and on the east side of the Dempster highway.

Can anyone provide me with better directions? There are a number of quarries that might fit the directions that I have.

Don't know anything about this remote area but maybe see if you can see anything on google maps in the satellite view.

Suitable lithology south of Inuvik hosts three active quarries: one at the airport and two others at km 251 and km 235 of the Dempster highway.
