Known as a gold mining town, the area is home to Kirkland Lake Gold Inc., which owns and operates five major gold mines. These properties include the Macassa, Kirkland Minerals, Teck-Hughes, Lake Shore and Wright Hargreaves mines, which have produced 22 million troy ounces (684,000 kg) of gold. However, the mines have reduced production substantially in recent years, and the population has declined rapidly as a result, from as high as 17,000 in the 1970s to less than half that now. The decline is expected to continue.
