Exploration Activity: Surface Gas Sampling At Lightning Dock Area (Norman, Et Al., 2002)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Lightning Dock Area|
|Exploration Technique||Surface Gas Sampling|
The Lightning Dock, Animas Valley, New Mexico geothermal area was discovered when a rancher found boiling water while drilling a shallow stock tank welt (Elston, Deal, et. al, 1983). There are no surface manifestations of present or past geothermal activity in the Animas Valley. Norman and Bernhart (1982) analyzed the gases in the discovery well and 15 stock tank wells nearby (Figure 1).
