Snake River Plain Play Fairway Analysis: Phase 2 Report and Phase 3 Proposal


This report presents the results of Phase 2 of the Snake River Plain Play Fairway Analysis project, and a summary of proposed work for Phase 3. Phase 2 focused on new data collection in specific areas of interest identified in Phase 1. These data include new magnetotelluric, seismic, gravity, magnetic surveys, as well as structural and geologic mapping, Ar-Ar radiometric ages of young basaltic volcanoes, and chemical analyses of young volcanic rocks. New data also include chemical and isotopic analyses of water from springs and wells. Focus areas include the Mountain Home region, an area around the Bostic-1 thermal well, and Camas Prairie, Idaho.
