Thermal Gradient Holes At Twenty-Nine Palms Area (Sabin, Et Al., 2010)
Exploration Activity: Thermal Gradient Holes At Twenty-Nine Palms Area (Sabin, Et Al., 2010)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Twenty-Nine Palms Geothermal Area|
|Exploration Technique||Thermal Gradient Holes|
The first and only Seabee drilling project was the installation of five TGHs at the Camp Wilson region of the MCAGCC Marine base near Twenty-Nine Palms, CA. While the program was a success and GPO identified an anomaly where a deep, slim hole is to be drilled in June, 2010, the Seabee rig was sent oversees soon after drilling was completed. If/when another rig becomes available, this program will be restarted.
