School of Mines Furthers Pagosa Springs Geothermal Knowledge
In 2012 and 2013, the Colorado School of Mines and the community of Pagosa Springs, Colorado partnered to further geothermal knowledge. Pagosa Springs has been a test lab for the students’ geothermal studies welcoming young adults and professors from the Colorado School of Mines and Imperial College London. Their research has furthered understanding of the geothermal and geological characteristics for Pagosa and created advanced learning for the students.
Pagosa Verde enjoyed employing Colorado School of Mines graduate students as summer interns providing educational opportunities for the students while lending their expertise to economic development and renewable energy projects in Pagosa Springs. The results of these studies have been critical to both gaining funding for further development of the region’s geothermal resource and for directing future exploration strategies and priorities.
