Iskut River

The Iskut River is the largest tributary of the Stikine River in northwestern British Columbia, Canada, entering it a few miles above its entry into Alaska.

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, AK, offering a new route to the Pacific Coast. There are many gold, silver and base metal mines in the area--including the Snip property.
