Geothermal Geodatabase for Rico Hot Springs Area and Lemon Hot Springs, Dolores and San Miguel Counties, Colorado

Abstract

This geodatabase was built to cover several geothermal targets developed by Flint Geothermal in 2012 during a search for high-temperature systems that could be exploited for electric power development. Several of the thermal springs have geochemistry and geothermometry values indicative of high-temperature systems. In addition, the explorationists discovered a very young Climax-style molybdenum porphyry system northeast of Rico, and drilling intersected thermal waters at depth.

Datasets include:
1. Structural data collected by Flint Geothermal
2. Point information
3. Mines and prospects from the USGS MRDS dataset
4. Results of reconnaissance shallow (2 meter) temperature surveys
5. Air photo lineaments
6. Areas covered by travertine
7. Groundwater geochemistry
8. Land ownership in the Rico area
9. Georeferenced geologic map of the Rico Quadrangle, by Pratt et al.
10. Various 1:24,000 scale topographic maps
