Exploration Activity: Audio-Magnetotellurics At Raft River Geothermal Area (1978)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Raft River Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Audio-Magnetotellurics
Activity Date 1978

Usefulness not indicated
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
To infer the structure and the general lithology underlying the valley
 
Notes
An area of low apparent resistivity values defined by the audiomagnetotelluric (AMT) survey appears to outline the extent of the geothermal reservoir even though the reservoir is deeper than the penetration of the survey. Self-potential anomalies relate to near surface hydrology. Upward leakage from the reservoir produces shallower effects that were measured by the AMT survey.
