The Use of 3D Geologic Modeling to Improve Well Targeting in Glass Buttes, Oregon

Abstract

The Glass Buttes Project includes combining a suite of high-resolution geophysical and geochemical techniques to reduce exploration risk by characterizing hydrothermal alteration, fault geometries and relationships. This is aided through geologic observation, modern remote sensing and geophysical techniques which analyze and structurally model this area prior to siting and drilling.
