Geological information’s from the thermo-mineral waters origin and the temperature signals from the depth are presented in the paper. Albania represents a country with rich in geothermal resources of low enthalpy and thermo-mineral waters. Geothermal energy of low enthalpy resources is located in different areas of Albania. Thermal waters are sulfate, sulfide, methane, and iodinate-bromide types. Thermal sources are located in three geothermal zones. Location of the geothermal springs, their reservoirs, and water physical-chemical properties are analyzed in detailed in the paper. This analyze is performed in complex with geothermal regime of the geological structures of the Albanides based on temperature at different depths, geothermal gradient and heat flow density. All geothermal information for the depth of the Albanides there is study as integrated part of the geological settings interpretation. Geothermal studies of the Albanides have their contribute in two directions: first, regards on some regional geological aspects of the Albanides, as depth ruptures, etc. Secondly, collection of knowledge in regional and local plane on the thermal and mineral water resources potential and geothermal market of the Albania. Both of directions are presented and analyzed in the paper.
