Journal Article: Electrical Resistivity and Self-Potential Surveys Blue Mountain Geothermal Area, Nevada

Abstract
Self potential and electrical resistivity surveys have been completed at the Blue Mountain geothermal area to search for the source of thermal fluids discovered during drilling for mineral exploration, and to help characterize the geothermal resource. Two large SP anomalies are associated with the artesian thermal area and the area of highest temperature observed in drill holes. Two similar anomalies were mapped 1 to 3 km to the south and west over valley fill. Electrical resistivity zones which may serve as conduits for, or the upper portions of, the geothermal reservoir. Self potential and induced polarization anomalies also correspond to the main known occurrence of gold-silver which is associated with pyrite mineralization.
