Exploration Activity: Core Analysis At Dunes Geothermal Area (1976)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Dunes Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Core Analysis
Activity Date 1976
Usefulness not indicated
DOE-funding Unknown

Exploration Basis
Fracture analysis to determine if sealing or open fractures exist
Core samples show diagenesis superimposed on episodic fracturing and fracture sealing. The minerals that fill fractures show significant temporal variations. Fracture sealing and low fracture porosity imply that only the most recently formed fractures are open to fluids.
