Title: Magma energy : a feasible alternative 
Author: Colp, J.L.
Date: 1980-03-01
Publisher: Sandia Laboratories
Citation: Colp, JL. 1980. Magma energy: a feasible alternative. Albuquerque (NM): Sandia Laboratories.
Abstract: A short review of the work performed by Sandia Laboratories in connection with its Magma Energy Research Project is provided. Results to date suggest that boreholes will remain stable down to magma depths and engineering materials can survive the downhole environments. Energy extraction rates are encouraging. Geophysical sensing systems and interpretation methods require improvement, however, to clearly define a buried magma source.
