Abstract : The Geothermal Utilization Division of the Naval Weapons Center has been exploring geothermal potentials at various sites of the Naval Weapons Complex, Fallon, Nev. The purpose of the exploration program is to determine adequacy of geothermal resources for energy self-sufficiency of the Naval Air Station Fallon. The present report presents the results of studies at NAS Fallon and Ranges Bravo 16 and 19 that included thermal gradient drilling: aeromagnetics, gravity, and land magnetics studies; and the drilling of one 2,000-foot observation hole. The results indicated a high geothermal potential at NAS Fallon and better than average potentials for Ranges Bravo 16 and 19. (Author)
