Nevada Sells Geothermal Leases

November 24, 2002
The Nevada Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has sold geothermal leases for 16 tracts of land in the state. The leases for 31,094 acres generated more than $300,000 for the agency. The tracts are located in three “Known Geothermal Resource Areas” — areas that are considered rich in geothermal energy and prime for energy development — in northeast Nevada.
