In all one hundred and thirty artifacts found in the Lake Nipigon "area" in 1976 and donated to the Museum this past month, not one had a notch. That puts them into either the Palaeo or very early Archaic time.
We hope to get the Lakehead University archaeologists to clear that up for us shortly.
Any way they are old, running 5000 to 7000 years.

These two photos go together. I was trying to get a close up of the workmanship.
 It is all in one piece.

These are large scrapers about hand size.

Bottom right is the second and third "point" in this post.
(circa 13 cm.) As you can see the colour is very bright
 compared to what we are seeing  in our photos.
The top left is a bone fragment with three lines/cuts.

Some of the large points

Good person also picked up the "pieces".

A broken "end" of a point?
Some "pieces" cut paper or drill holes.

Generally 3 to 4 cm.
