USA, Nevada: Two Deepened Wells Extend Size of San Emidio Phase II Geothermal Reservoir

Drilling Extends Known Boundary of San Emidio Resource (News Release)

U.S. Geothermal Inc. has announced that it has deepened two wells at the San Emidio project. Both wells intersected high temperature geothermal fluid and high permeability.

In a follow up to the five well temperature gradient drilling program completed last year, two wells were deepened based on their high thermal gradient and bottom hole temperature.

Well 17-21, intersected the geothermal resource at 1,766 feet and has a measured flowing temperature of 319°F. Well 25-21 intersected the geothermal resource at 2,206 feet and has a measured flowing temperature of 322°F. Both wells flow under artesian pressure.

Both wells will undergo further testing to obtain data to be used to optimize the numerical reservoir model.
