GPO drilled two deep, slim geophysical test holes on the western margin of the Hawthorne Army Depot in 2008/2009. These two holes, HWAD 2a and HWAD 3, were drilled on the perceived structural trend of this valley and immediately south and east, respectively, of the El Capitan well. The "El Cap" is a 1,000' well completed by an unsuccessful developer in 1980. The El Cap and several other wells in this region south of Walker Lake have long been admired and even discussed by industry and the military but no sustained exploration or development activities work have ever been undertaken in the region until recently.
