NTIS: PB 241 867 :255 pages
Geothermal fluids and hot springs waters from California and Nevada were sampled and analyzed to provide a basis for process development and economic studies on the potential for recovering valuable minerals from these fluids. In general, bulk precipitation methods were utilized to remove the valuable constituents from the geothermal fluids, followed by separation of the constituents from this bulk precipitate. Concentration of geothermal fluids to recover soluble saline constituents such as sodium chloride and calcium chloride does not appear practical owing primarily to the probable need for reinjecting such fluids back into the production zone.
