Fallon, Nevada FORGE 3D Geologic Model FallonPhase2Model.zip

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. FallonPhase2Model_faults.dat fields include 1) x meters; UTM NAD83 Zone 11M, 2) y meters; UTM NAD83 Zone 11M, 3) z meters; relative to mean sea-level, 4) Surface non-numeric; fault name, 5) Surfacetype non-numeric; type of surface (fault or horizon), 6) FaultBlock non-numeric; name of fault block, and 7) Zone non-numeric; stratigraphic unit of the point. FallonPhase2Model_zones.dat fields include 1) x meters; UTM NAD83 Zone 11M, 2) y meters; UTM NAD83 Zone 11M, 3) z meters; relative to mean sea-level, 4) Surface non-numeric; fault block name/surface name, 5) Surfacetype non-numeric; type of surface (fault or horizon), 6) FaultBlock non-numeric; name of fault block, and 7) Zone non-numeric; stratigraphic unit of the point. Text file containing references is also included.
