    A geochemical survey of the Las Tres Vírgenes geothermal field (LTVGF), Baja California Sur, Mexico, was carried out to determine the origin and evolution of its fluids, along with the influence of injection of local brines, ...
  • Variability of deep carbon sources in Mexican geothermal fluids 

    Richard, Luc; Pinti, Daniele L.; Hélie, Jean-François; Hernández, Aida López; Shibata, Tomo; Castro, M. Clara; Sano, Yuji; Shouakar-Stash, Orfan; Sandoval-Medina, Fernando (Elservier, 2019)
    A sampling campaign for collecting geothermal fluids was carried out between 2014 and 2016 at the Cerro Prieto (CP), Los Azufres (LA), Los Humeros (LH), and Las Tres Vírgenes (LTV) geothermal fields (GFs) in Mexico. The ...
  • A noble gas and 87Sr/86Sr study in fluids of the Los Azufres geothermal field, Mexico – Assessing impact of exploitation and constraining heat sources 

    Wen, Tao; Pinti, Daniele L.; Castro, M. Clara; López-Hernández, Aída; Hall, Chris M.; Shouakar-Stash, Orfan; Sandoval-Medina, Fernando (Elservier, 2018)
    Thirty geothermal wells and two hot springs were sampled for volume fraction and isotopic measurements of noble gases (He, Ne, Ar, Kr, Xe) and strontium in the Los Azufres Geothermal Field (LAGF), Mexico. The aim of this ...
  • Cerro Prieto Geothermal Field (Baja California, Mexico) – A fossil system? Insights from a noble gas study 

    Pinti, Daniele L.; Castro, M. Clara; López-Hernández, Aída; Hernández Hernández, Mario Alberto; Richard, Luc; Hall, Chris M.; Shouakar-Stash, Orfan; Flores-Armenta, Magaly; Rodríguez-Rodríguez, Marco H. (Elservier, 2019)
    Results of a survey of noble gases, water stable isotopes (δD and δ18O), and chlorine (Cl) and bromine (Br) contents measured in geothermal waters from the high-enthalpy, liquid-dominated Cerro Prieto Geothermal Field ...
  • Heat flow and geothermal provinces in Mexico 

    Prol-Ledesma, Rosa María; Morán-Zenteno, Dante Jaime (Elservier, 2019)
    Definition of geothermal provinces is a key factor for regional exploration. Mexico’s geothermal potential is underdeveloped, and government policies have aimed to simplifying regulations and providing insurance to reduce ...
  • Heat flow map and geothermal resources in Mexico 

    Prol-Ledesma, Rosa Maria; Carrillo-de la Cruz, Juan Luis; Torres-Vera, Marco Antonio; Membrillo-Abad, Alejandra Selene; Espinoza-Ojeda, Orlando Miguel (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, 2018)
    Heat flow maps are a powerful tool for regional exploration of geothermal resources. Mexico is one of the main producers of geothermal energy and the search for undiscovered resources at a regional level should be based ...
  • Fluid circulation and reservoir conditions of the Los Humeros Geothermal Field (LHGF), Mexico, as revealed by a noble gas survey 

    Pinti, Daniele L.; Castro, M. Clara; Lopez-Hernandez, Aida; Han, Guolei; Shouakar- Stash, Orfan; Hall, Chris M.; Ramírez-Montes, Miguel (Elservier, 2017)
    Los Humeros Geothermal Field (LHGF) is one of four geothermal fields currently operating in Mexico, in exploitation since 1990. Located in a caldera complex filled with very low-permeability rhyolitic ignimbrites that are ...
  • Geological, hydrogeological, and geothermal factors associated to the origin of arsenic, fluoride, and groundwater temperature in a volcanic environment El Bajío Guanajuatense, Mexico 

    Morales, Ivan; Villanueva Estrada, Ruth Esther; Rodríguez, Ramiro; Armienta, María Aurora (Springer link, 2015)
    Arsenic and fluoride groundwater concentrations over national standards for drinking water were measured in the regional aquifer of Juventino Rosas, Guanajuato State, Central Mexico. Also anomalous temperature occurs in ...
