Notes
Three core holes drilled between 2002 and 2005. Depths: 1,728; 3,435; 4,727 ft. Two deeper wells encountered temps of 327 and 329 oF and permable fractures in sedimentary and volcanic rocks; enabled injection and flow testing up to 70 gpm. Quartz fluid inclusions give temps of 264 and 316 oF. Core drillling allowed an understanding of geology and geothermal system that could never have been obtained from cuttings in this particular geologic setting.
