Concentrations of N2, O2, CO2, and He in Soil Gases Collected Over and Near the Dixie Valley Known Geothermal Resource Area, Northern Dixie Valley, Nevada

Abstract: Concentrations of N2, O2 , CO2, and He were measured in 189 soil-gas samples collected October 16-19, 1994, from over and near the Dixie Valley Known Geothermal Resource Area (KGRA) and along the front of the Stillwater Mountains south of the KGRA in the northern Dixie Valley, Nevada. The study was funded by the U.S.Department of Energy, and was part of a geochemical and biogeochemical survey seeking surficial evidence for subsurface features, many of which were already known from drilling, of the geothermal reservoir at Dixie Valley. Sampling and analysis of the soil gases are described and measurements of gas concentrations are listed.Plots of soil-gas concentrations show that sample sites with highest concentrations of He and CO2 are located over and near the KGRA and also over faults in Dixie Valley.
