Geothermometry At Desert Queen Area (Garchar & Arehart, 2008)
Exploration Activity: Geothermometry At Desert Queen Area (Garchar & Arehart, 2008)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Desert Queen Area|
Temperatures of the reservoir at depth are estimated to be between 92-141 degrees C and were calculated using the δ18O(SO4-H2O) geothermometer. It is unclear whether these temperatures reflect waters from the outflow zone of the Desert Peak geothermal system, or waters from a different reservoir at Desert Queen. Quartz, chalcedony, amorphous silica, Na-K-Ca, and δ18O(SO4-H2O) geothermometer calculations were performed.
