Yellowknife's defunct Con mine is set to rise again if the feasibility study indicated the mineshafts could produce greenhouse free emissions. What is the mine expected to become?

They say that even in the dead of a Yellowknife winter, workers at the old Con mine on the edge of the city used to come up from the depths dressed in T-shirts and shorts due to the heat from the bedrock.
Now the N.W.T. capital is considering using that heat to extract a different kind of gold from the defunct mine — cheap, greenhouse gas-free energy to warm its buildings on frigid Arctic nights.
