Fluid Inclusion Analysis At Dixie Valley Geothermal Area (Lutz & Moore, 1998)
Exploration Activity: Fluid Inclusion Analysis At Dixie Valley Geothermal Area (Lutz & Moore, 1998)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Dixie Valley Geothermal Area|
|Exploration Technique||Fluid Inclusion Analysis|
|Activity Date||1998 - 1998|
The purpose of this analysis was to document the complex history of rocks and the geothermal system in Dixie Valley.
The fluid inclusion study was done from cuttings of six geothermal wells in Dixie Valley. Thin sections were made and X-ray diffraction techniques were used. A total of 550 fluid inclusions were analyzed. The study yielded homogenization temperature and apparent salinity information from Jurassic reservoir rocks.
