    I have had time to go over the rest of the GPS Locations and there are 3 that need to be checked,
    KEITH LAKE, SIX LAKES 2, and LAROCQUE LAKE. Larouque Lake’s GPS Location shows it at 47.5 +- kms North of Fort Chip.????

      Hi Bruce, thank you for looking into the coordinates. We pulled the list from a manual we did not create, please pardon us for sharing without double checking their accuracy. We are working on a revised list and map and will post them as soon as they are complete.
