Exploration Activity: Static Temperature Survey At Blue Mountain Geothermal Area (Fairbank Engineering Ltd, 2003)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Blue Mountain Geothermal Area|
|Exploration Technique||Static Temperature Survey|
|Activity Date||1996 - 1997|
These down hole temperature surveys were the first reliable subsurface temperature data for the geothermal program.
Detailed temperature logs were recorded using a precision thermistor probe. The temperature logs were recorded in 11 new mineral exploration holes. The holes ranged from 99-244 m depth. Temperature gradients in some of the holes were very anomalous with very steep heat gain in the upper 200 m.
