Hawthorne Nevada Deep Direct-Use Feasibility Study - Geology

The objective of this project is to use a multi-disciplinary, three-tiered approach to assess the geothermal resource and determine the feasibility of implementing a large-scale, direct-use facility for the Hawthorne Army Depot (HAD) and the various town and county facilities in Hawthorne, Nevada. This assessment directly targets a geothermal resource recently characterized by the Navy Geothermal Program Office (GPO) as part of a focused exploration and development campaign.

This data includes: Zip file containing geologic map and related data of the Hawthorne area, Zip file containing the report and Maps produced by John Oldow, Zip file containing GIS mapping done by UNR in 2009, Low Sun Angle Photos Quaternary Fault Study report, Hawthorne well cuttings descriptions report.
