Exploration Activity: Thermal Gradient Holes At Kilauea East Rift Geothermal Area (Thomas, 1986)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Kilauea East Rift Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Thermal Gradient Holes
Activity Date 1978 - 1987

Usefulness useful
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
This study was conducted as part of the Geothermal Resources Assessment Program initiated in 1978
 
Notes
Two phases of exploratory drilling were conducted in the Lower East Rift Zone. The first phase was done with relatively little surface exploration data. The second phase was done after somewhat more geoscience information had been acquired. The results this exploratory drilling program proved that a commercially viable geothermal resource is feasible.
