Exploration Activity: Spontaneous Potential At Blue Mountain Geothermal Area (Ross, Et Al., 1999)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Blue Mountain Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Spontaneous Potential Well Log
Activity Date 1996 - 1998

Usefulness useful
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
Electrical resistivity surveys were done to analyze the source of geothermal fluids that were discovered during mineral exploration in the 1980's
 
Notes
Self potential surveys were conducted in the geothermal area. The surveys covered an area of 11km^2 and utilized a total of 44.3 line-km of profiles. The surveying technique used was a basic radial pattern. Four large negative anomalies were discovered which are associated with the thermal area and the area of highest temperatures found in drill holes. The anomalies also correspond to gold, silver, and pyrite deposits.
