Notes
The first TIR survey BN conducted was over the Lester Hot Springs area to see if it would help outline the area of geothermal activity. These studies found extensive thermal springs and a grassland area caused by the thermal spring activity (Vice and Crowley, 1979). Although the TIR imagery showed a strong anomaly at the Lester Hot Springs (Figure 2 ), geochemical data from the hot springs suggested reservoir temperatures of 150degrees to 170degrees C (Vice, 1978) which was too low for conventional technology in the 1970s, and so the prospect was temporarily shelved.
