Proposed Action

U.S. Geothermal Inc. (USG) in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Energy is proposing to supplement the geological profile of the San Emidio geothermal resource area utilizing surface seismic equipment. The Department of Energy is providing funding for the project under Grant DE-FOA-0000109. The geophysical data collection will require 4 additional, 1 mile seismic transects along which 40 "seismic acceleration" points will be evaluated. The seismic data will be collected with a truck mounted tri-axial vibroseis machine. There will be no roads or excavation required and the truck will make one pass along each route. Based on the geologic structure and known geologic features USG's exploration work will be located on both private and BLM administered lands.
