The Thelon flows on to Hudson Bay. The river was discovered by Samuel Hearne in 1770 and traversed by Joseph B. Tyrrell in 1893. Dubawnt Lake, icebound most of the summer, is just north of the treeline in the Barren Lands of Nunavut. The name Dubawnt is from the Chipewyan word tobotua, meaning "water shore," possibly in reference to water between the shore and ice in late spring.
