Abstract: "A test well 3,000 to 5,000 feet in depth is proposed to be drilled 0.7 miles south of Halemaumau crater in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Island of Hawaii. It represents the first attempt to drill above a magma chamber of an active volcano to test the hydrologic and physical environment. Geologic and geophysical test will also be performed in the area. "
