Description/Abstract:A frequency-domain electromagnetic survey was conducted at 19 stations over a 200 km/sup 2/ area encompassing the McCoy geothermal prospect, Churchill County, central Nevada. The McCoy area is characterized by high heat flow, mercury mineralization, and recent volcanics. Three horizontal-loop transmitters were used with receivers from 0.5 to more than 4.0 km from the loops. Receiver stations were arranged along a pair of crossing north-south and east-west lines. Data were interpreted first with a simple apparent resistivity formula and then with a least-squares lumped-model inversion program. The rough terrain and complex geology introduce an element of uncertainty to the interpretations.
