Water Sampling At Waunita Hot Springs Geothermal Area (Carpenter, 1981)
Exploration Activity: Water Sampling At Waunita Hot Springs Geothermal Area (Carpenter, 1981)
|Exploration Activity Details|
|Location||Waunita Hot Springs Geothermal Area|
|Exploration Technique||Water Sampling|
The aim of Water sampling by Colorado Geological Survey was to attempt to relate ionic content in these samples to the temperature and nature of a possible geothermal reservoir at depth
Water samples were collected from the two hot springs, two cold springs, and also from surface water in the upper Hot Springs Creek drainage. Three samples were gathered from each site. Samples were analyzed for components, PH and conductivity (under the supervision of Dr. T. A. Wildman in laboratory).
