The Sahtu Land and Water Board has created a series of maps in relation to the 13 oil and gas exploration licences in the Tulita and K'asho Got'ine Districts. These maps identify which company holds each exploration licence, exploration work conducted back to 2010, as well as upcoming development for the winter of 2012-2013. These maps will be updated yearly to reflect the level of oil and gas exploration in the Sahtu. Visit the Presentations and Maps tab under Resources, or click here.
