Conference Paper: Conceptual Geologic Model and Native State Model of the Roosevelt Hot Springs Hydrothermal System

Abstract
A conceptual geologic model of the RooseveltHot Springs hydrothermal system was devel opedby a review of the available literature. Thehydrothermal system consists of a meteoricrecharge area in the Mineral Mountains, fluidcirculation paths to depth, a heat source, andan outflow plume. A conceptual model based onthe available data can be simulated in thenative state using parameters that fall withinobserved ranges. The model temperatures,recharge rates, and fluid travel times aresensitive to the permeability in the MineralMountains. The simulation results suggests thepresence of a magma chamber at depth as thelikely heat source. A two-dimensional study ofthe hydrothermal system can be used toestablish boundary conditions for further studyof the geothermal reservoir.
