Session 2B: Geothermal Resource Exploration

The session will comprise the latest works on geological, geochemical, and geophysical surveys, including exploratory drilling, in geothermal areas across the globe. Further, it will be a platform for examples of conventional and state-of-the-art tools and techniques for geothermal exploration. The inputs from such works will help the developers mitigate early-stage project risk by precisely locating the drilling targets for geothermal resources.
