Geoscience BC and the Geological Survey of Canada are inviting to an online open house to discuss the Geothermal Potential Research at Mount Meager in British Columbia/ Canada on May 7, 2020.

Geoscience BC and the Geological Survey of Canada are hosting a free online open house to discuss new research assessing potential for geothermal energy generation at Mount Meager, near Pemberton, British Columbia.

The online open house will present and discuss findings presented in a new report due to be published in late April 2020 on 2019 fieldwork that is part of the multi-year Garibaldi Geothermal Volcanic Belt Assessment Project. It will be led by project lead and Geological Survey of Canada Research Scientist Steve Grasby and Geoscience BC Executive Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer Carlos Salas. Researchers involved in the project from six different universities will also be on hand to answer specific questions.
