Description: The results of 33 Schlumberger resistivity soundings made in the Jemez Mountains of northwestern New Mexico, near the village of Jemez Springs, are presented. Three areas that have potential as low-temperature geothermal reservoirs were identified using these data. The areas are characterized by a localized zone of very low resistivity (< 10 ..cap omega..m), which represents the extent of geothermal water and correlates with the location of hot springs or recent volcanic rocks. Resistivities increase rapidly toward the margins of the anomalies, which suggests either variable porosities or variable temperatures and salinities in the reservoirs.
