Conceptual models are the basis of any exploration or development activities. Many Conceptual models of Dixie Valley have been made and they have been evolving and becoming more complex over the years.
In a Report published by SUNEDCO, the company that discovered the geothermal field, a model is shown with inaccurate thicknesses and depths of formations. It is speculated that due to the highly competitive drive for multiple companies to develop a power plant in Dixie Valley, bad information was purposely being spread.
