Journal Article: An overview of the geology and secondary mineralogy of the high temperature geothermal system in Dixie Valley, Nevada

Abstract
Lithologic units encountered in the Dixie Valleygeothermalfield range from Triassic marine sediments toRecent basin-filling sediments. Structural features affectingthe location of the geothermal activity include Mesozoicthrusting. late Tertiary normal faulting andQuaternary to Recent normal faulting. The hydrothermalmineral suite is variable, due in part to rock-gasreactions.
