This trip will visit southern Gabbs Valley in western Nevada, where a blind geothermal system was recently discovered through application of the play fairway analysis. The geothermal play fairway concept involves integration of multiple parameters indicative of geothermal activity as a means of identifying promising areas for new development. On this trip, we will review the play fairway methodology applied to Nevada, discuss a new geothermal potential map for the region, and assess the geologic, geophysical, and geochemical evidence for a blind geothermal system in southern Gabbs Valley, including positive results from recently completed temperature-gradient drilling. Cost includes transportation, continental breakfast, lunch and dinner.
