Nevada Geothermal Power Inc. (NGP) has leases on Edna Mountain. The property covers a 11.05 square mile (7,072 acre) parcel of land and is a few miles northeast of NGP's Pumpernickel Valley project, two miles south of Interstate Highway 80, and nine miles west of the Valmy coal-fired power plant owned by NV Energy and Idaho Power.

Field exploration and other research indicated a favorable geological and structural setting, significant evidence of past and present hydrothermal activity associated with extensional faulting, and a thermal anomaly significantly larger than previously recognized.

The next step at Edna Mountain is to continue an exploration program that should include detailed geological mapping, extended 2-m probe survey, geophysical surveying and thermal gradient drilling. Additionally, a series of slim holes should be drilled to a nominal depth in order to intercept the range front fault and any permeable production zones.

Edna Mountain geothermal project highlights are:
  • Edna Mountain is located within a favorable geological setting with significant evidence of past and present hydrothermal activity
  • Geochemistry analysis of geothermal brine collected from an undocumented hot well located within the lease area suggests parent geothermal reservoir temperatures of 385F - 397F (196C - 203C)
  • Temperature measurements within the same well to a depth of 1130 feet (345 meters) indicate that commercial reservoir temperatures may occur within 5000 feet (1500 meters) of surface
  • Blind resource with a thermal anomaly significantly larger than previously recognized
