Thermal conductivity measurements have been applied on Way Ratai geothermal prospect area. The thermal conductivity method is used to evaluate the ability of a rock to deliver heat by conduction. In the area, many surface manifestations are scattered in various regions, where hot springs dominate these various manifestations. This thermal conductivity mapping of rocks is carried out around geothermal manifestations by making a hole as deep as 1 meter to insert the stick of conductivity meter. The result of thermal conductivity method measurement is data of k (thermal conductivity), Rt (thermal resistivity), and T (temperature). The measured value of conductivity data in the geothermal field is valued between 0.056-0.664W/mK, thermal resistivity between 1.344-17.527 mK/W, and the temperature between 22.7-52.6°C. The difference value of thermal conductivity rock is influenced by several factors: existing geological structures in the field such as normal faults and lineaments, presence of alteration, and the manifestation zone of hot water or hot vapor that caused by fumaroles.
