Abstract
This report contains a technical and economic analysis of the feasibility of extracting and recovering mineral values from the fluids in the Salton Sea Known Geothermal Resources Area utilizing geothermal energy. A hypothetical geothermal mineral industrial complex is sized to supply sodium chloride and geothermal energy to a 1,600-ton-per-day caustic-chlorine plant. The complex would provide for recovery of a silica plus heavy metal precipitate, lithium as an aluminum complex, potassium salts, and calcium chloride. Capital and operating costs are estimated separately for salt separation by either evaporation crystallization or freeze crystallization.
