Borealis GeoPower is proud to announce that on May 29, 2018, the BC Oil and Gas Commission issued geothermal resource well authorizations for four thermal gradient wells on our Canoe Reach Geothermal Project. As stated on the commission's Industry Bulletin, this "represents the first time the Commission has issued a well authorization under the Geothermal Resource Act".
These authorizations will allow Borealis to go forward with drilling for the collection of geotechnical and temperature gradient information.
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.
