"Of the 463 geothermal sites to study, we've studied and characterized more than 250 in the past year, either using existing records or on-site analyses," Faulds said.
"We'll continue to study more of the sites so we can develop better methods and tools for geothermal exploration.
Most, about two-thirds, of the geothermal resources in the Great Basin are blind - that is, there are no surface expressions, such as hot springs, to indicate what's perhaps 1,500 feet below the surface."
Better characterization of known geothermal systems is critical for new discoveries, targeting drilling sites and development, Faulds said.
The success of modeling sites for exploration is limited without basic knowledge of which fault and fracture patterns, stress conditions, and stratigraphic intervals are most conducive to hosting geothermal reservoirs.
"The geothermal industry doesn't have the same depth of knowledge for geothermal exploration as the mineral and oil industries,"
