Geoscience BC is pleased to announce the release of a new report highlighting additional educational and community engagement work undertaken following the release of the Direct-Use Geothermal Roadmap in June 2016 (Geoscience BC Report 2016-07). The original report contained practical guidelines for communities on geothermal surface exploration, land acquisition and permitting, drilling and testing wells required for the design and development of direct-use geothermal resources in BC.
The release of this new report coincides with a BC Economic Development Division webinar "Geothermal: Heating up Rural Economic Development" being held this afternoon. The Direct-use Geothermal Resources in British Columbia project was jointly funded by Geoscience BC and the BC government's ICE Fund.
The report is now available through Geoscience BC's website or our Earth Science Viewer.
