Exploration Basis
The goal of this study was to map and analyze faults in southern Dixie Valley. The study was done for the Department of the Navy Geothermal Program Office's NAS Fallon Geothermal Exploration Project.
High resolution LiDAR and 1:12000 scale low-sun-angle aerial photography was used in southern Dixie Valley to help better characterize quaternary faults in the area. This study was conducted roughly 50 km south of the Dixie Valley Power Plant. The Study is part of a program to seek new geothermal reservoirs near Fallon Nevada. The survey successfully identified previously unmapped faults and a potential low temperature anomaly that was not previously mapped.
