Funny fact from Flin Flon
Prospectors discovered gold near the town, 600 miles north of Winnipeg, in 1910 and originally called their settlement Beaver City. By 1914, they had changed the name to Flin Flon in honour of a fictional character called Josiah Flintabattey Flonatin - from a turn-of-the-century novel called The Sunless City - who found a city laden with gold at the bottom of a lake.
