Rhyolite Plateau Geothermal Exploration Project

Map of Rhyolite Plateau Exploration Sites

The Mammoth Geothermal Complex began another exploration project in 2003 in an area north of the Town of Mammoth Lakes called the Rhyolite Plateau as shown on the map. The project was submitted to the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in April 2003 and a public tour was held in July 2003. As of 2015 the project has not moved forward due to the focus on the proposed CD IV project.
