Exploration Activity: Field Mapping At Neal Hot Springs Geothermal Area (Colwell, Et Al., 2012)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Neal Hot Springs Geothermal Area|
|Exploration Technique||Field Mapping|
|Activity Date||2011 - 2011|
field mapping was conducted to gain a better understanding of the geology and structure of Neal Hot Springs and the surrounding areas. This study was conducted by a geophysics field camp from the Colorado School of Mines.
Geologic field mapping was done in the area surrounding Neal Hot Springs and compared to large scale geologic mapping done in 1994. A revised geologic interpretation was made which calls the area a horst and graben complex with units in stratigraphic succession. The study claims to have significant implications for geophysical techniques and the structure controlling hot springs in the area.
