The 2017 magnetotelluric study of the Mt. Apo Geothermal Project confirmed several resistivity features from the 2006 resistivity model of previous studies including the NW-trending high resistivity anomaly associated with the high temperature resource, the major outflow towards the northwest, and the postulated minor outflows towards the southwest and southeast. Moreover, the recent survey also identified a new feature characterized as a NE-trending moderately resistive anomaly that appears to cut through the supposedly continuous conductive layer of the reservoir. With an additional 102 MT soundings from stations surrounding the 2017 study area, the 2019 model updated and expanded the resistivity model and explored the extent of the postulated outflows.
