The Tahltan Nation says it purchased 5% of three run-of-river hydro-electric projects located in its traditional territories, which include the communities of Iskut, Dease Lake and Telegraph Creek.
The power-generating facilities include run-of-the-river projects, Forrest Kerr, McLymont Creek and Volcano Creek, which produce electricity sold to BC Hydro, the province’s Crown-owned energy utility.
The Tahltan Nation says in a statement its territory is home to three of B.C.’s 19 operating mines and represents about 25 percent of current mining exploration activities.
