Exploration Activity: Core Analysis At Raft River Geothermal Area (1976)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Raft River Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Core Analysis
Activity Date 1976

Usefulness not indicated
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
Fracture analysis to determine if sealing or open fractures exist
 
Notes
Core samples show diagenesis superimposed on episodic fracturing and fracture sealing. The minerals that fill fractures show significant temporal variations. Fracture sealing and low fracture porosity imply that only the most recently formed fractures are open to fluids.
