Journal Article: Exploration for Geothermal Resources in Dixie Valley, Nevada- Case History

Abstract
After several years of reconnaissance geology in Nevada, an exploration program to evaluate the geothermal resource potential of Dixie Valley was begun in 1974. Between 1974 and 1978 Sunoco Energy Development Co. conducted two heat-flow drilling programs, a resistivity survey, a seismic emission study, a ground noise survey, two magnetotelluric surveys, a hydrology study, and a surface geology survey. The synthesis of the data resulting from these projects into the regional geologic framework led to the acquisition of geothermal resource leases from fee property owners, through open-file application of federal lands, and by participation in the federal KGRA competitive lease sale of May 1976.
