This model was created to better determine the subsurface structure in Dixie Valley.
A Structural model was created using gravity, Seismic and drilling data. The goal for making this model was to better determine the subsurface structure and find accurate depictions of fault dip angles. The modeling concluded a complex interfingering system of faults and fractures that host many flow systems. The model is similar to a vein structure associated with ore deposits.
