Title: Project HOTSPOT: Kimberly Well Core Photos

Abstract

The Snake River Plain (SRP), Idaho, hosts potential geothermal resources due to elevated groundwater temperatures associated with the thermal anomaly Yellowstone-Snake River hotspot. Project HOTSPOT has coordinated international institutions and organizations to understand subsurface stratigraphy and assess geothermal potential. Over 5.9km of core were drilled from three boreholes within the SRP in an attempt to acquire continuous core documenting the volcanic and sedimentary record of the hotspot: (1) Kimama, (2) Kimberly, and (3) Mountain Home. The Kimberly drill hole was selected to document continuous volcanism when analysed in conjunction with the Kimama and is located near the margin of the plain. This submission includes photos of the core samples taken from the Kimberly drill hole. Data submitted by project collaborator Doug Schmitt, University of Alberta *Note - The archive file "Photos.zip" contains all of the photos associated with this submission in a more easily downloaded format
