AbstractThermal water is an importantnatural resource. The hydrogeochemistry and geothermometry of thermal water from theQianyi well (TWQW), which is associated withthe Tongjing Warm Springs located in the Eastern Sichuan Fold Belts in Chongqing, SW China, was investigated. The reservoir of this region consists of upper and middle Triassic carbonate and evaporiterocks. The TWQW was of Ca-Mg-SO4 type with water temperature of 47.3 degrees C. Plotting on the Giggenbach Na-K-Mg diagram indicates that the TWQW was immature due to a mixing of shallow karst groundwater and thermal water. The mixing model indicates that the TWQW was composed of 49% deep thermal water and 51% shallow karst groundwater. Geothermometers suggest a reservoir temperature of about 79 degrees C, locating this aquifer at a depth of similar to 2.5km. The D and O-18 values plot near the local meteoric water line, suggesting that the TWQW originates from local meteoric water at recharge elevations of similar to 780-1160m a.s.l.. A conceptual model of thegenesis for Tongjing Warm Springs was developed. Rainfall infiltrates via karst outcrops in the elevated areas of thenorthern Tongluoxia anticline, extracts heat from reservoir rocks at depth, dissolves minerals and becomes thermal water. The thermal water is driven by gravity, flows through thecarbonate-evaporite aquifer, and follows the Tongluoxia anticline of the Eastern Sichuan Fold Belts to the southwest. The thermal water ascends to the surface along the incision created by the Wentang River and mixes with shallow karst groundwater to create warm springs. This study may be relevant toother karst geothermal reservoirs in China.
