Borealis is pleased to announce that at 2 OGE deployments in the 2018 field season, OGE identified otherwise ‘hidden’ geothermal features. Further, in one of the cases, OGE also added some predictive capability, in suggesting the location of a geothermal feature, which was later confirmed to be a newly discovered hot spring. We look forward to more detailed OGE ‘ground truthing’ through the 2019 field season, building on the initial predictive capacity, with an eye to automating significant components of the system as we progress into 2020.
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.
