Canada-based Magma Energy, through its Italian subsidiary, has secured two geothermal exploration concessions in Italy.

The concessions, known as PR Mensano and PR Roccastrada, are located in western Tuscany near the town of Larderello, Italy.

The 21,256-hectare Mensano concession lies to the east of Larderello, while the 27,190-hectare Roccastrada concession is to the south of the town.

According to the company, both concessions exhibit the area’s typical sedimentary and metamorphic rock formations and overlie a large inferred heat source that powers the major regional geothermal system.

Magma Energy operates, develops, explores and acquires geothermal energy projects.
