Borealis GeoPower's Canoe Reach Geothermal Project has once again been brought into the public eye, being featured in Dan McCue's article entitled "Drilling to Begin Soon on Canadian Geothermal Project" on Renewable Energy Magazine's website. The article states that "Borealis GeoPower, a renewable geothermal energy company based in Calgary, Alberta, has received four geothermal resource well authorizations from the BC Oil and Gas Commission for thermal gradient wells on its Canoe Reach Geothermal Project, south of Valemount, British Columbia. The well authorizations will allow the company to begin drilling for 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.
