Circumstances of Disappearance

On the 7th of June, 1967, James Brady and his partner, Abraham Halkett, were dropped off by plane at Foster Lake, SK, located 120 miles north west of La Ronge, SK.

The two were prospecting in the area.

They were last heard of on a radio call to a nearby mine on June the 8th.

Extensive land, air, and water searches of the area failed to locate any trace of the two men.

Their camp was located but had been unused.

Brady was born in St. Paul, Alberta. With a strong concern for his people; Brady was destined to become a political activist. Brady became involved with the Metis in the Edmonton area where they went on to form the big five and start up the Metis Association of Alberta.

Brady entered the war and came back to join the CCF in Saskatchewan. The workload was too much for Brady to handle so he went on to a life as a prospector in the Northern woods, where he continued to support the rights of the Metis. In 1964 he formed a new Metis Association in La Ronge.

Many hazards in such a wilderness area. Bears, bogs, rivers and lakes to drown in... has LE ever mentioned they suspected foul play? Funny things sometimes happened to Indian activists in those days...

Wonder what the substance of the radio call to the mine was... did they intend to visit the mine that day? There's just no way to know with the information available what their plan was to know where they might have been headed. If they were headed to the mine to do some organizing, it's quite possible there were some "union busters" that did them harm.

If a bear got them, it happened out in the woods somewhere...by the time anyone found them (if ever), the remains would have likely been scattered. Same deal if they got caught in some sort of weather, or deadfall, or who knows what.

Google came up with this biographical info:


Interesting guy...here's a link to one of his writings...

Read the pdf file downloadable here for some theories on this case:

I'm ordering the book that the author of the last linked document wrote...will let you know how he fleshes out his theories in the book when I've read it. It sounds like there are a few different possibilities here.
