Title: Fallon, Nevada FORGE 3D Geologic Model

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.

  1. The Geothermal Data Repository (GDR) is the submission point for all data collected from researchers funded by the U.S. Department of Energy's Geothermal Technologies Office (DOE GTO). The DOE GTO is providing access to its geothermal project information through the GDR. The GDR is powered by OpenEI, an energy information portal sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
