Conceptual model of fluid upwelling at Neal Hot Springs. Fluids upwell (orange arrows) along favorably oriented (in the current stress field), NNW-striking, moderately to steeply dipping fault segments of the Neal fault and/or fault intersections at the southeastern end of the step-over, as evidenced by the location of the production wells in this area. The opaline sinter terrace (green) marks the surface manifestation of the upwelling geothermal fluids
