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.
