Exploration Activity: Self Potential At Neal Hot Springs Geothermal Area (Colwell, Et Al., 2012)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Neal Hot Springs Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Self Potential
Activity Date 2011 - 2011

Usefulness useful
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
Self potential surveys were conducted to gain a better understanding of the geology and structure of Neal Hot Springs and the surrounding areas. These studies were conducted by students and faculty in geophysics field camps from the Colorado School of Mines, Boise State University, and Imperial College London.
 
Notes
SP surveys were conducted to detect movements of water carrying ions. Anomalies detected at the surface were used to map water movement in the shallow subsurface. Vertical water movement along a fault was detected. Non-polarizing petiau electrodes were used, the electrodes are made of lead/lead chloride, bentonite, and an extremity of low permeability wood. the moving electrode in this study was offset from the reference electrode at 20 m intervals.
