Report: Geology and alteration of the Coso Geothermal Area, Inyo County, California Abstract Geology and alteration of the Coso geothermal area were mapped in conjunction with geophysical surveys and a deep drill test (CGEH-1) to facilitate selection of a follow-up drill site.

Geological and geophysical analysis of Coso Geothermal Exploration Hole No. 1 (CGEH-1), Coso Hot Springs KGRA, California.   The Coso area has ample surface evidence of geothermal energy including fumaroles, hot springs, hydrothermally altered rocks, and Late Cenozoic volcanics (as young as Pleistoc, YBP) including thirty-seven rhyolite domes.

Geology and alteration mapping analyzed exposed rocks in geothermal region. Neither geologic mapping nor deep drilling have revealed potential deep primary aquifers. Surface alteration at Coso is of three main types: (1) clay-opal-alunite alteration, (2) weak argillic alteration, and (3) stockwork calcite veins and veinlets, which are locally.

Earth Science Laboratory.; United States. Department of Energy. Division of Geothermal Energy.]. One well-cited example of an off-diagonal approach is the study by Newman et al. of the East Flank of the Coso geothermal system in eastern California. Newman et al. () imaged a subvertical low-resistivity (∼5 Ohm m) feature in a zone of major geothermal energy production, and interpreted it as a zone of high temperature fluids residing. The Coso Geothermal Exploration Hole number one (CGEH-1) was drilled in the Coso Hot Springs KGRA, California, from September 2 to December 2, Chip samples were collected at ten foot intervals and extensive geophysical logging surveys were conducted to .
