Exploration Activity: Core Holes At Kilauea East Rift Geothermal Area (Bargar, Et Al., 1995)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Kilauea East Rift Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Core Holes
Activity Date 1989 - 1991

Usefulness useful
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
This study was conducted to provide data for volcanic research, evaluate commercial geothermal potential, and for long tem monitoring.
 
Notes
Three scientific observation holes were drilled in the Lower East Rift Zone for the purpose of collecting core samples for volcanic research, evaluating commercial geothermal potential, and for long term monitoring. The holes were drilled by the Hawaii Natural Energy Institute of the University of Hawaii at Manoa. About 4559 m of core was successfully recovered from the SOH drill holes.
