Scientists Find Massive Geothermal Hotspot In Utah!!!
Scientists Find Massive Geothermal Hotspot In Utah Following two full years of study, scientists have confirmed that they have identified a huge geothermal hotspot in Utah, presenting the possibilities of exploitation of the find for cheap energy

The area in question, covering an area of about 100 square miles, lies in Utah’s Black Rock Desert basin, south of Delta. During the two-year study, researchers drilled nine deep wells in the basin in an effort to confirm that water at very high temperatures was close enough to the surface to be manipulated, potentially allowing it to be converted relatively easily into steam to be used to generate electricity. (See more: World Energy Consumption Facts, Figures, and Shockers)

Rick Allis, director of the Utah Geological Survey, will report his team’s findings on the site to the energy industry at next week’s annual meeting of the Geothermal Resources Council in the hopes that it will generate interest among developers. The site itself offers particular benefits given its state of industrial development, including a large wind farm and a major transmission line currently serving a nearby coal-fired power plant.

“Our next step is to get (geothermal energy investors) interested in moving forward to develop this resource,” said Allis. (See more: Renewable Energy — Facts and Figures)

Karl Gawell, president of the Geothermal Energy Association, is expecting positive results from the release of the “exciting” news, citing potential breakthroughs in the way that humanity powers its societies if the site can be properly exploited. The local benefits are not lost on Gawell, either.

“It’s exciting for Utah, too, because it could eventually generate a lot of jobs and economic growth,” he said.

This is cool I hope they get as much as they can out of it!

I know we all know about the obvious hot spots. A couple that come to my mind are Yellow Stone, which is probably equivalent to a nuclear power plant, and Hot Springs, Arkansas. I wonder when we are going to surrender these to society... if ever.

there was a 3.8 in Utah just minutes after the 6.0 in Mexico just before midnight Sunday. it was quickly scrubbed from USGS. I saw it. don't know if it was a legitimate quake, or sensors picking up the Mexico quake.

 Quoting: Goofy for God


There is a main vein that runs directly from yellowstone down through the middle of utah.

There are many geothermal 'hot springs' available....though many are simply used for homeless bathing.

There was a time, before the springs were enclosed, when it was difficult to drive on certain parts of the freeways for all the steam that covered them in the winter time.

The western part of Utah, into Nevada was historically highly volcanic. Volcanism is still obviously present in many areas of the state.

I only wonder.......where did the lava go?

Utah has cool geologic features.

last summer I went swimming inside a volcanic crater. My son tried out scuba inside the crater..

Clip.
Once inside, you can go swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, enjoy a therapeutic soak, or even take a paddleboard yoga class. The Crater is the only warm water scuba diving destination in the continental US and attracts many diving enthusiasts and those wishing to get certified in a comfortable environment.

No sand worms in Delta, but plenty of polygamist mormans. They won't be harmed by the drilling, and perhaps they will benefit enough to get jobs and finish the siding on their homes to finally start paying state real estate tax.

Hey Brief, haven't you been paying attention? The energy industry is exempt from the laws that were created to protect you and me from the by-products of energy production. Look into the "Halliburton Loophole" [link to www.independentwatertesting.com]

This is why here on the Colorado plains east of the Rockies our air quality is now WORSE than L.A.'s. No joke. Out of a possible 10, our most recent reading is 2.9 (by NOAA, zero being the worse). Could this possibly be from the 18,000 (eighteen thousand / no I didn't add an extra zero) fracking wells they have drilled in the last few years in Weld County. NOAA Seems to think so. [link to summitcountyvoice.com]

Unfortunately, the same loophole that exempts fracking from the Clean Air and Clean Water legislation the rest of us have to follow also applies to geothermal energy production.

So, lucking Utah can go right ahead and exploit those geothermal vents without any regulations getting in their way.

Don't you just love progress?

It's not like it's a secret! When it comes to the surface so hot that it needs to be diluted before people can use it.....it's not rocket science folks that if you drill down a little ways it will be hot enough to produce steam. AND when it comes to the surface in 20+ places warm enough to be an attraction to the locals.....it's not a secret that there is tons of it down there. Some sites see their busiest times in mid winter since that's when it's funnest go outdoor swimming. :)

If you hike some of the rivers, you will see 50+ places in a single river where the geothermal activity is present. Sometimes it's just the discoloration...sometimes the smell, sometimes it's just warm enough to not freeze in the winter, but it's there. The funniest part is....some of those rivers aren't known for geothermal activity...the 'hotspring' where people swim/soak will be two canyons north or south of where you could be hiking and finding all the surface demonstrations of geothermal activity.
