October 21, 2018: Geothermal Canada (GC) was pleased to present “Moving Geothermal in Canada Forward” at the International Session of the Geothermal Resources Council’s (GRC) annual conference held in Reno, Nevada. The presentation, given by GC President Dr. Catherine Hickson provided a broad overview of geothermal activities underway in Canada by highlighting a number of projects in the works.
Additional details on projects in British Columbia “An Overview of Borealis GeoPower Projects and Community Engagement” was provided by Katie Huang (GC Secretary). Tiffani Fraser (GC Director) gave an update on temperature gradient drilling in “Geothermal Studies in Yukon – Collaborative Efforts to Understand Ground Temperature in the Canadian North”. Jeff Witter (GC Treasurer) gave a presentation on work he is doing in the USA “2D and 3D Potential Field Mapping and Modelling at the Fallon FORGE site, Nevada, USA” In addition to four GC’s members present, 44 other Canadian’s were registered for the event, making the Canadian contingent the largest national group after the USA.
Three of these presentations are available on our website.
A popular item at the conference were the scarves emblazoned with the GC Logo generously sponsored by Tuya Terra Geo Corp. Due to the popularity of the scarves, an on-the-spot decision was made to give a scarf to any new corporate sponsors. Karen Christopherson, Chinook Geoconsulting, Inc. was GCs first corporate sponsor to receive a scarf. Thank you Karen! GC also donated two scarves to the Women in Geothermal (WING) scarf/tie exchange awareness event as well as two special chocolate boxes for their raffle event.
