3-year project will see test wells and research in coordination with 3 First Nations
Three Yukon First Nations are set to further explore their lands’ potential for geothermal power, with help from a new $2 million federal initiative announced Thursday.
It will see funding from Canada’s National Research Council help the Yukon Geological Survey work with the Liard First Nation, Teslin Tlingit Council and Kluane First Nation.
The research will examine fault lines near the communities of Watson Lake, Teslin and Burwash Landing, which could hold significant geothermal energy potential.
