Location

There is a 195 MW run of river hydroelectric project underdevelopment in Forrest Kerr Canyon of the Iskut river. A road, cut wide enough for a transmission line corridor, has been built that leads to the proposed in-take and out flow areas of the project. The project will pave the way for development in this region, possibly connecting Highway 37 to Wrangell, Alaska, offering a new route to the Pacific Coast. There are many gold, silver and base metal mines in the area—including the Snip property.
