Abstract

Fluid sampled from granitic rock near the 2 km depth in the DOSECC Cajon Pass well contained He, H2, CH4, C2H6, and C2 H4 in concentrations much greater than in air-saturated water. Measured pCO2 values were very low, about 10-5 atm., and the carbon isotopes (??13C = -18.9 per mil) point to an organic source such as plant root respiration for the dissolved carbonate species. No evidence of mantle volatiles was found despite proximity of the well to the San Andreas fault. -from Authors
