Title: Fallon, Nevada FORGE 3D Geologic Model

Abstract

The 3D geologic model for the Fallon for site was constructed in EarthVision software using methods similar to (Moeck et al., 2009, 2010; Faulds et al., 2010b; Jolie et al., 2012, 2015; Hinz et al., 2013a; Siler and Faulds, 2013; Siler et al., 2016a, b) - References are included in archive. The model contains 48 faults (numbered 1-48), and 4 stratigraphic surfaces from oldest to youngest (1) undivided Mesozoic basement, consisting of Mesozoic metasedimentary, metavolcanic, and plutonic units (Mzu); (2) Miocene volcanic and interbedded sedimentary rocks, consisting primarily of basaltic and basaltic andesite lava flows (Tvs); and (3) late Miocene to Pliocene (i.e., Neogene) undivided sedimentary rocks (Ns); and (4) Quaternary sediments (Qs). The two files contain points that describe nodes along the fault surfaces and stratigraphic horizons.
