A North Star Air Avions de Transport Regional ATR-72-212A, registration C-FNIJ performing flight BF-104 from Kashechewan,ON to Pickle Lake,ON (Canada), was enroute about 130nm east of Pickle Lake when the crew heard noise and observed the left chip detector light illuminate. The crew worked the "Engine Fail" checklist and shut the left engine (PW127F) down, declared emergency and continued to Pickle Lake for a safe landing. The aircraft was shut down on the runway and towed to the apron.

The Canadian TSB reported the left Auxiliary Gear Box magnetic chip detector was removed and oil drained. Metallic Chips were found on the detector and in the oil, therefore the left engine was removed from the aircraft and sent for repair.

The aircraft had suffered another problem with the left engine about a month earlier, see Incident: North Star AT72 near Thompson on Jun 12th 2021, engine shut down in flight.
