Well RR 56-4, was not successful in intersecting an exploitable geothermal resource. However, the lack of temperature reversal in the well and the geochemistry information obtained from fluid sampling point towards a large resource of moderate temperature. The encouraging results from 56-4 have lead to continued exploration on the project. The geologic and hydrologic information collected from 56-4 has proved an invaluable aid when combined with data from well 13-4, in interpreting the geothermal development potential of the Reese River Prospect.
