Preliminary geochemical and geophysical exploration has begun at the Fort Bidwell Indian Reservation (FBIR) which will lead to siting a 1500 m slim exploration well in the summer of 2005. Unusually enriched helium isotope values, geothermometry in nearby gradient wells and encouraging results from time-delay SP surveys are favorable indicators in the work to date.
