Description:During 1980, the U.S. Geological Survey conducted geophysical studies in the region of Shaw Warm Springs, Colorado. The work was done to help assess the geothermal potential of the region in a cooperative effort with the Colorado Geological Survey. The geophysical methods used were audiomagnetotellurics (AMT) and E-field ratio telluric profiles. Shaw Warm Springs lies approximately 8 kilometers north-northeast of Del Norte, Colorado on the western edge of the San Luis Valley and at the eastern flank the San Juan Mountains. The thermal manifestations are one major spring which has a temperature of 30C at the Shaw Springs Ranch. A few warm wells have been reported in the valley to the east. Elevation was reported as the range 2,370- 2,610. The maximum elevation value was entered into the surface elevation field.
