File Description:
These are three DEW line sites in northern mainland Canada, to the east of Tuktoyaktuk.

Clinton Point is almost 300 miles east of Tuktoyaktuk and on the Northwest Territories and Nunavut border. It is the site of a closed DEW station (closed in 1993) and all the buildings have been removed, unlike many other sites where buildings are still almost complete. The roads and the gravel runway down by the beach are still there.

Horton River is 150 miles east of Tuktoyaktuk, up on higher land above the cliffs at around 500 feet ASL. The NWS (North Warning System) replaced the I site which was there previously and which ceased operations in 1963. The NWS is serviced by helicopter from a barge 400 yards away on the beach.

Keats Point is 270 miles east of Tuktoyaktuk, 7 miles from the coast but significantly close to a lake, which was probably used for float plane delivery in the summer (or ski plane delivery in the winter) of NWS station elements during construction.
