Abstract: The Flinders Ranges in Australia are located within the well defined South Australian Heat Flow Anomaly. Anomalously high heat flow is recorded in this area, offering world-class opportunities for the development of significant and economically viable Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS). Here, we show how a combination of potential field data interpretation and modelling with surface and sub-surface geological constraints in addition to finite element thermal models, enable us to to best delineate potential geothermal reserves. This study could be used as a benchmark for any EGS exploration in the world.
