New data model released for mineral brines

AZGS has officially released a new National Geothermal Data System (NGDS) interchange format (or Content Model) for “Mineral Recovery Brinesfor a total of 36 data models relevant to geothermal energy exploration and development -
The US Dept. of Energy's Geothermal Technologies Office requires funded projects to similarly structure their data and upload it to the DOE Geothermal Data Repository node on the NGDS.

This latest content model includes an “Experimental Data” tab relevant to the mineral recovery data that DOE-funded projects are currently collecting as part of their strategic materials initiative.

This model includes fields describing our funds recipients recovery media, media formulation, elements evaluated, brine temperature, pH, removal efficiency, selectivity, chemical/thermal stability, etc.

AZGS managed the largest of the projects to build, populate, and deploy the data network.  We spun off a non-profit company last year, USGIN Foundation, Inc, to commercialize the technology and make the system financially sustainable.
