Throughout the process of geothermal exploration in Pagosa Springs, Pagosa Verde has collected a significant amount of data on the geology and geothermal potential in the region. The major reports and papers are collected here, with some raw data including photographs of the core drilled near town. Reports were created for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and peer reviewed presentation at the Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) and World Geothermal Congress (WGC) in 2015. A summary of the reports are provided below.

Document Description and Details
DOE Final Report The final project report produced for the U.S. Department of Energy. The report discusses the findings and conclusions of the thermal gradient hole drilling phase and how they alter the overall conceptual model of the geothermal system in Pagosa Springs. The appendices include much of the raw data gathered during exploration in addition to some previous reports about the region and are as follows:

Appendix 1 – Temperature Data
Appendix 2 – Core Log
Appendix 3 – Core Photography
Appendix 4 – Geophysical Logs
Appendix 5 – Water Chemistry
Appendix 6 – MMR Soil Gas Report
Appendix 7 – Compiled Drilling Logs
Appendix 8 – DOE Phase 1 Report
Appendix 9 – CSM 2012 and 2013 Reports
Appendix 10 – Flint Geothermal Report

GRC Presentation

The paper, poster, and powerpoint publications from the Geothermal Resources Council meeting in September, 2015 are presented here. This is the most recent peer reviewed presentation about the data found during drilling. The paper was submitted before the powerpoint or poster, and so should be considered less up to date if interpretation is conflicting.
World Geothermal Congress The presentation by Pagosa Verde at the World Geothermal Congress in Australia during April, 2015 about the state of the project at that time.
