Flin Flon

Flin Flon is a city North of 53 in Manitoba; it is landlocked and on the border with Saskatchewan, and in fact a small portion of Flin Flon is actually located inside Saskatchewan, making it only one of two undivided border cities in Canada (alongside Lloydminster), although it is never enumerated as one of Saskatchewan's cities. Its main industry is mining, and the town is dominated by the mine's smokestack. The town is largely constructed on exposed rock face, giving it a surreal, almost lunar, atmosphere. It is located immediately adjacent to the Saskatchewan town of Creighton.
