Geochemicalstudies of the geothermal systems in Kenya: II. The Majimoto geothermal field
The Majimoto geothermal field discharges at the boundary between metamorphic schists and gneisses of Precambrian age, and Pleistocene volcanic ashes. The waters are near neutral, low salinity waters. Calculated reservoirtemperatures are about 90°C. Oxygen and hydrogen isotopes indicate that the thermal waters are meteoric in origin. The field is suitable for development for uses in spa therapy, crop drying, milk pasteurisation, leather processing and house warming.
