This PNT area is south of, but not on the Boyer River, a tributary of the Peace River near Ft. Vermilion. Based on the topographic map of the area, this site appears to be mostly marshy.
Map of the Area
Any maps and map views are for general information only. Do not rely on them for navigation or to determine legal boundaries.
This Site is likely named for the nearby community of Boyer, Boyer River, or the Boyer First Nation (164). Charles Boyer was a Northwest Company trader in the late 18th century described as being ‘very fit for the Peace Country’  .
The Boyer River meanders to the north of the site but does not flow through it. A former channel is in the northernmost portion of the PNT.
