Borealis GeoPower Inc. is pleased to announce that on December 6, 2017 the BC Ministry of Energy and Mines and Petroleum Resources, Electricity & Alternative Energy Division, accepted our payment for an additional geothermal permit in the Valemount area. Title has now been granted to Borealis on lands that we have called our "permit extension".
Word of Borealis' recent progress in the Canoe Reach Geothermal Project is starting to spread. Alexander Richter from ThinkGeoEnergy recently published an article, titled "Borealis GeoPower secures additional geothermal permit at Valemount, BC", discussing the new permit issued to Borealis under the Geothermal Resources Act, as well as Borealis' search for a new strategic operating partner.
Borealis GeoPower is headquartered in Moh’kins’tsis, the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) name for the place we now call Calgary, located in the Treaty 7 region and the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy (including the Siksika, Piikani and Kainai First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw and Wesley First Nations). The City of Calgary is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III.
BOREALIS GEOPOWER has operations on the traditional, unceded territory of the people of the kitselas First Nation. the kitselas people are part of the larger tsimshian nation whose traditional language is sm'algyax. kitselas means "people of the canyon" in sm'algyax. the kitselas First Nation has been archaeologically documented to occupy the kitselas canyon, east of terrace (british columbia) on the skeena river, for at least 5000 years.
We are grateful to the past, present and future stewards of this land.
