3D geothermal potential map of the Tuscarora geothermal system. Warm colors, which are associated with the collocation of favorably oriented fault segments, high fault intersection/fault termination, and the Paleozoic basement section, indicate high geothermal potential. The dashed outlined areas of high geothermal potential are interpreted as the most likely locations for geothermal fluid upwelling. Geothermal production wells (red) and injection wells (dark blue are the proximal, light blue are the distal injection wells) are shown
