Geologic and geophysical investigation of the Beowawe geothermal area, north-central Nevada by Mary Lou C. Zoback Download PDF EPUB FB2

The purpose of this paper is to describe the geology and geophysics of a part of the eastern northern Nevada rift (synonymous with the northern Nevada rift of Zoback, ; Zoback et al., ) that encompasses the Beowawe geothermal system in north-central Nevada and the assumptions, extrapolations, and geophysical modeling conducted to generate a 3D geologic by: 8.

Estimates of geothermal resources are made on the basis of geological and geophysical data such as (i) depth, thickness and extent of geothermal aquifers, (ii) properties of rock formations, (iii) salinity and geochemistry of fluids likely present in the aquifers, and (iv) temperature, porosity and permeability of rock formations (Rummel and.

FIGURE The location of the geothermal provinces in the United States. Within the United States the regions of relatively high thermal gradients, shown in red, exist only in the West. The typical local geologic setting for these high-geothermal-gradient areas is within sedimentary basins located near or intruded by recent volcanics, or within (as part of) the buried volcanic rocks themselves.

These particular systems appear to be caused by deep circulation of meteoric water, leading to convective heat transfer, in areas of above-average conductive heat flow (e.g. Beowawe, Nevada, published by White ).

Blue Mountain geothermal area is located in Humboldt County, Nevada about 35 km west ofWinnemucca. The geothermal system was discovered during the exploration of a precious metalsprospect.

Drilling prior to had focused on the gold mineralization, and the geothermal system waslargely unexplored. The HC/CUEP area principally lies along the east side of the Cortez Mountains in Eureka and Lander counties, Nevada.

A small portion of the HC/CUEP area extends to the western flank of the Cortez Mountains. Current exploration activities within the HC/CUEP Plan of Operations (Plan) boundary have been centralized in the Horse Canyon area. 1 DOE/EA ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT Ormat Nevada Northern Nevada Geothermal Power Plant Projects Department of Energy Loan Guarantee for ORMAT LLC s Tuscarora Geothermal Power Plant, Elko County, Nevada; Jersey Valley Geothermal Project, Pershing County, Nevada; and McGinness Hills Geothermal Project, Lander County, Nevada U.S.
