Notes
This resistivity survey was done by the Energy & geoscience Institute (EGI), the University of Utah, and a contractor Consolidated Geophysical Surveys (CGS). The survey was conducted on the western flank of Blue Mountain. It was an IP/resistivity (dipole-dipole) survey. The survey covered an area of around 11 km^2. Five profile lines were laid out: an ENE profile with dipole spacing of 300 m and depth penetration of about 600 m, three north-south profiles, and an east-west profile. Several areas of low apparent resistivity (4-10 ohm-m) were identified from this survey, these anomalies are believed to be due to a geothermal system at depth. One of the anomalies was interpreted to be from fluids up to 200 degrees Celsius.
