According to local legend, prospector Tom Creighton registers a claim on land near the 55th parallel in northern Manitoba after being intrigued by “brass yellow glints” in an outcrop. He calls his strike Flin Flon after an adventurous character in an early science fiction novel, Josiah Flintabbatey Flonatin.
