A DHC-8-100 operated by Air Creebec, was conducting flight YN861 from Timmins/Victor M. Power Airport (CYTS), ON, to Moosonee Airport (CYMO), ON, with 4 crew and 26 passengers on board. After departing runway 03, the LH engine torque began to fluctuate, lost power, and failed. The flight crew conducted the appropriate checklists and declared an emergency with Timmins FSS, declared their intention to return for landing on runway 03, and requested that the ARFF be present for their landing. The flight landed uneventfully. Maintenance completed ground runs and did not find any cause for the engine failure. As a precaution, they replaced the LH torque gauge and LH engine signal conditioner and conducted further ground runs before conducting a test flight. Five circuits were performed with no faults found, and the aircraft was returned to service.
