Deep down, we care about the home we all share: The Earth.
The People and Purpose of Deep GEO.
DEEP GEO BEGINNINGS
Deep GEO was born in the beautiful rugged and rolling hills of Northern Canada. Company founder Link Murray was invited to join an eclectic group of environmentally-conscious fishermen, farmers, preachers, activists and geologists. They began brainstorming how to empower indigenous people to improve their lives. Despite an abundance of natural resources, relatively few benefits were realized by the local communities.
What was needed is a source of income that could flow directly to the region and people that live there. What if someone could use the solid stable granite below the surface that had remained undisturbed for thousands of years? Could they develop a deep geological repository in this granite for the safe storage of nuclear waste? The repository would be a tremendous asset to the world’s clean energy economy, which could generate significant funds that could stimulate enormous economic and social change locally. Planning began to create the world’s first multinational repository, and Deep GEO was incorporated.
“The spirit of Deep GEO people is caring, Earth-conscious, community-minded and light-hearted. We enjoy our work.”

Deep Geo is committed to our community partners. That is why the company will create an Investment Trust Fund to directly benefit the communities surrounding our Deep Geological Repositories.
From our humble beginnings in Labrador, Canada we have now expanded our team to include international scientists, engineering partners and nuclear industry leaders. We have also established community based programs with two African countries.
FIVE GOALS OF DEEP GEO
Deep GEO will be a world leader in the safe transportation and storage of nuclear waste for any country that needs this service. Here are five things we focus on to help us make a difference.
