"To test if it would have been possible to find the Tungsten Mountain geothermal system with a shallow temperature survey, more than 80 2-meter-deep temperatures were recorded during a two week period in late June and early July, 2007. These measurements spanned an 8-km-long zone parallel to the range front and extended eastward from the range front up to 2 km towards the playa's edge (Figure 1). Two-meter temperatures ranged from 14.0°C up to a maximum of 26.7° C. The higher temperatures correspond to the area of exploration drilling, although anomalously high temperatures extend northeastward beyond the area of drilling. These results help to better define a thermal anomaly that generally parallels the range-front for over 5 km and remains open to the northeast."
