Moose Jaw geothermal study: M74-3/85-7E-PDF

"The City of Moose Jaw is contemplating the development of a health spa using warm mineralized brine to be extracted from one of the geothermal reservoirs underlying the City. ... The Earth Physics branch of Energy, Mines and Resources, Canada has been actively pursuing geothermal energy development for a number of years. This prefeasibility study is funded by EMR as a continuation of this effort. ... A number of geothermal formations exist at depths from 900 to 2,300 m, and contain brines at temperatures of 30 to 60°C, and with salinities of 4,000 to 180,000 ppm. For pool and spa use, lower salinity brines are preferred. The subject study identifies a practical and cost effective rationale for retrofitting existing heating systems to maximize the economic utilization of this low temperature energy resource"--Exec. summary.
