Session 5F: Great Basin Geothermal Resources and 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.
