Exploration Basis
The objective of the study was to expand knowledge of Nevada's geothermal resource potential by providing new geochemical data from springs in less studied geothermal areas and to refine geochemical data from springs for which only incomplete data were available. This work fills in gaps in publicly available geochemical data, thereby enabling comprehensive evaluation of Nevada's geothermal resource potential.
Waters from over 70 springs at numerous sites were sampled in the summer and fall of 2002 and subsequently analyzed for their chemical and isotopic constituents. Salt Wells was included among the sites visited, however the spring intended for sampling (Borax Spring) has been inactive since the early 1980’s, and thus yielded no results.
