Nevada Petroleum and Geothermal Society Monthly Dinner Meeting—Thursday November 2, 2017

Geothermal Systems and Mineral Deposits: Similarities, Differences, and Significance
SPEAKER: Dr. Dave Boden, Professor of Geoscience at Truckee Meadows Community College
BIO: Dave Boden is currently Professor of Geoscience at Truckee Meadows Community College in Reno, Nevada. Since 2007, he has taught a course on the geology of geothermal resources as part of the college’s degree programs in renewable energy (geothermal emphasis) and natural resources. He also teaches a course on the geology of geothermal energy at UNR as part of its graduate degree program in sustainable resources. Although perhaps still a newcomer (some say interloper) to the geothermal industry, Dave nonetheless wrote a book entitled The Geologic Fundamentals of Geothermal Energy, which also draws upon both his teaching and prior 20 years looking for and studying base and precious metal deposits in the fossil analogs of today’s geothermal systems. Dave considers the book, although published, still a work in progress, due to the complexities and multifaceted nature of geothermal systems, and welcomes any comments for improvement. Dave has earned degrees in geology and geological engineering from UC Davis, Colorado School of Mines, and Stanford University. He is currently a member of the board of directors of the Geothermal Resources Council, where he chairs its Education Committee. When not teaching (or speaking), Dave enjoys hiking and skiing to backcountry hot springs with family and friends.
