Rankin Reserve (15D) is the main location with Garden River Reserve on its East Boundary and the City of Sault Ste Marie bordering its West boundary. It is approximately 1620 ha (4,000 acres). This location gets its name from the Rankin Mining Company, which owned this property when purchased in 1939 by the Batchewana First Nation people for a Reserve. The main Administration of the First Nation is located at this site.
