The Proposed Project

Marten Falls First Nation is proposing the construction and operation, including maintenance, of an all-season multi-use community access road approximately 140 to 250 kilometres in length, connecting the northern end of Painter Lake forestry road to the community of Marten Falls. Marten Falls is located at the junction of the Albany and Ogoki rivers, approximately 170 kilometres northeast of Nakina, Ontario. As proposed, the Marten Falls Community Access Road Project could enable future access to potential mineral development activities in the Ring of Fire area.
