Exploration Activity: Conceptual Model At Blue Mountain Geothermal Area (Casteel, Et Al., 2010)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Blue Mountain Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Conceptual Model
Activity Date 2010 - 2010

Usefulness useful
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
This conceptual model was put together to help visualize the geology and hydrothermal system.
 
Notes
A conceptual model based on drilling results, fluid characteristics, lithology, and 3D permeability mapping has been created. This model has very little geophysical data to work from because of a relatively small amount of studies that have been done prior to the model. The model establishes that permeability is controlled by a fault and fracture network with the majority of fluid flow being along the range front fault.
