Port, clean energy and exploration drive next activity in Stewart

November 6, 2012

Sleepy Stewart B.C. is humming with activity amidst port activity, tourism and a renewed fervour for mining exploration in the region.

The town of 500, which shares a border crossing with Alaska, is jam-packed with workers from the $90 million Long Lake hydroelectric project, and geologists who spend their days traversing hanging glaciers and mountainscapes in search of the next major mineral strike.

Thanks to ocean access via the Portland Canal, the town’s break bulk terminal is also fielding new investment interest from mining companies in search of an outlet for their commodities.
