Exploration Activity: Thermal Gradient Holes At Hualalai Northwest Rift Area (Thomas, 1986)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Hualalai Northwest Rift Area
Exploration Technique Thermal Gradient Holes
Activity Date

Usefulness not useful
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Notes
Although not part of the current effort, two deep (approximately 2000 m) exploratory wells were drilled on the north flank of Hualalai near Puu Waawaa cinder cone. The geophysical data used for siting these wells were proprietary and hence unavailable for publication; however, the temperatures measured at the bottoms of the wells were reported to be below 20degrees C. Chemical analysis of water samples taken from these wells did not provide useful geothermal data due to contamination of the well water with drilling muds
