Newly discovered cave in BC

Newly discovered cave in BC

05 December 2018

In March 2018, while conducting a caribou census in Wells Gray Provincial Park, a helicopter crew from the province’s Ministry of Environment and Climate Change discovered an unusual feature in the area. The amazing new discovery starts a dramatic new chapter for Canadian cave exploration.

Geologist Catherine Hickson visited the cave back in September. “It’s about the size of a soccer field. So if you think of a soccer field and you put that soccer field on its end so you have this pit going down.  Think about this giant circular or oval hole that just goes down and down. It is truly amazing.”
