Proposed Action

The Aurora prospect consists of 29,000 acres in an area of Quaternary basaltic volcanism. Seventeen temperature gradient wells indicate a large geothermal anomaly. A GeoVision technology survey identifying thermal anomalies was completed recently on the property. Gradient reported an estimated 132 MW resource at Aurora.
