Geophysics for Geothermal Exploration Using Golden Software's Lineup of Mapping Software

The Dewhurst Group is a global geophysical exploration company that specializes exclusively on site selection for geothermal exploration and geothermal power development. The Dewhurst Group consists of a team of geologists, engineers, and geophysicists that integrate geophysics, geologic mapping, and geochemistry to pinpoint geothermal sources for electric power generation. The group relies heavily on both broadband magnetotelluric (BMT) and low frequency magnetotelluric (LMT) instrumentation.  MT instruments are designed and built in collaboration with the Russian Academy of Sciences and Vega Geophysics. Typically, the instruments are capable of acquiring resistivity values from a few meters in depth to many kilometers. With the LMT equipment it is often possible to gather data at depths as far down as the Mohorovicic discontinuity, the boundary between the Earth’s crust and mantle. Information at such depths can be helpful in understanding the tectonics that might drive a shallower geothermal source and related “plumbing” system.

Golden Software Gives Back to the Community

Last month I had the honor of receiving the Colorado School of Mines 2015 Young Philanthropist Award. During their annual Evening of Excellence, Mines celebrated those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding volunteer and philanthropic involvement in the university. The Young Philanthropist Award was one of eight philanthropy awards presented that evening. I must say, I was deeply honored to share the stage with such generous alumni and staff. And I also learned CSM’s newly elected president, Paul Johnson, was a Surfer user!

Colorado School of Mines President Paul Johnson, Golden Software CEO Blakelee (Midyett) Mills, and CSM Foundation Board of Governors Executive Committee Chairman and CEO David Wagner.

Customer Spotlight: The Velenje Coal Mine Benefits From Strater

The Velenje Coal Mine operates on the largest Slovenian coal deposit and on one of the thickest known coal layers in the world. In 137 years of operation of the coal mine, more than 225 million tonnes of lignite have been extracted from the lignite layers, which are up to 165 m in thickness.

We use Strater for producing our reports of completed wells. Our reports are comprehensive text reports with graphics produced with Strater. We gather data for Strater from a database of wells. We create many template files, each with a different look, for different types of graphical reports. With Strater, we can also create cross sections from our exploitation field to represent different geological data.
