Type B: Andesitic Volcanic Resource

Type B: Andesitic Volcanic Resource:
No definition has been provided for this term.


Andesitic resources are typically found in volcanic regions of subduction zones and are the most common type of resource found. The input of magma as a heat source and high strain rates contribute to the prolific development of geothermal systems in andesitic-volcanic belts. Examples include most resources in the Philippines, Indonesia, Central America, and South America.


According to Brophy, andesitic-volcanic resources typically have the following properties:

  • Topography – Usually mountainous
  • Climate – Variable, usually high precipitation
  • Depth to resource – Deep to moderate
  • Surface manifestations – Restricted- depending on depth and shallow ground water
  • Permeability – Low to moderate fracture permeability – often high
