Australian Hot Dry Rock and Oceanic Volcanic Island Hydrothermal
Evaluation of Geothermal Resource Potential Using Geochemistry
Geologica Geothermal Group performed a preliminary geothermal resource evaluation of several potential geothermal resource areas using available geochemical data. Resource areas included hot dry rock prospects in Australia and traditional hydrothermal prospects related to volcanic islands. Tasks included developing geochemical exploration programs, organizing databases, data interpretation and reporting. One hot dry rock area was identified as having a signature in the nearby hot spring and deep temperatures were developed from volcanic gas chemical and isotopic signatures.
