Hg And As Soil Geochemistry As A Technique For Mapping Permeable Structures Over A Hot-Water Geothermal System

A Multi-Element Soil Geochemical Technique Has Been Developed To Map Fault Distributions Over Active Geothermal Systems. At The Roosevelt Hot Springs Kgra, Utah, Nearly 550 Soil Samples On A 500 Ft Grid Spacing Covering Approximately 4 Square Miles Were Collected And Analyzed For Hg And As Using, Respectively, Gold Film And Colorimetric Techniques. Hg Concentrations Within The Survey Area Range From 10 To 5,300 Ppb With A Local Threshold Value Of 58 Ppb; As Concentrations Range From <1 41 Ppm With A Local Threshold Value Of 6 Ppm (Bamford, Christensen, And Capuano, In Prep.).
