Exploration Activity: Soil Sampling At North Brawley Geothermal Area (Alan & G., 1977)

Exploration Activity Details
Location North Brawley Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Soil Sampling
Activity Date 1976 - 1977

Usefulness not indicated
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
Soil and plant sampling was done in the known geothermal areas throughout Imperial Valley for environmental monitoring and elemental analysis.
 
Notes
The North Brawley, Heber, and East Mesa Geothermal Areas under went a soil and vegetation sampling study. The samples were analyzed for element quantities to establish a baseline. Significant differences in levels of zinc were noted between each site. Samples from the North Braley area were taken at least a half mile from any drill hole sites.
