Borealis GeoPower plans to begin exploration drilling British Columbia this year.

Last week, Borealis GeoPower was in Victoria before the new Provincial NDP government and the Green Party to acknowledge the Canoe Reach geothermal project, as they move towards creating the first geothermal power plant in B.C. After seven years of exploration and permitting, Borealis GeoPower is preparing to drill a test well this October near the Griffin Sawmill recreation site along Kinbasket Reservoir some 20km (12 miles) south of Valemount.

The Company has two geothermal energy projects in B.C., both of which are in the exploration stage and drill-ready. The other project is located near Terrace B.C.
