Notes
In April-May 1995, Sandia drilled a cost-shared exploratory slimhole with Trans-Pacific Geothermal Corporation (TGC), which owns leases in the Vale KGIL4. In addition to possible discovery of a new geothermal resource, this situation offered an opportunity for direct cost comparison between an exploration sl.irnholedrilled with "hybrid" techniques on a diamond-coring rig and a previous exploration well, which was conventionally drilled but would be considered a slimhole in that technology.
