Exploration Activity: Thermal Gradient Holes At Chocolate Mountains Area (Alm, Et Al., 2010)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Chocolate Mountains Area|
|Exploration Technique||Thermal Gradient Holes|
"Shallow temperature gradient drilling began at the CMAGR in January of 2010. 13 temperature gradient holes were completed to a depth of 500' below ground surface. Sites were selected based on the compilation of previous exploration and resulting data is being integrated into the most recent geologic model. This model will form the basis for the selection of a deeper (2000'-4000') temperature gradient drilling campaign at the CMAGR in 2011."
