Exploration Activity: Conceptual Model At Raft River Geothermal Area (1990)

Exploration Activity Details
Location Raft River Geothermal Area
Exploration Technique Conceptual Model
Activity Date 1990

Usefulness not indicated
DOE-funding Unknown

 
Exploration Basis
Develop a conceptual model to explain the exposed rocks.
 
Notes
Although commonly obscured by simple shear, pure shear fabrics occur locally within many metamorphic core complexes. The cover rocks of the Raft River metamorphic core complex exposed within the Black Pine Mountains display an early coaxial strain history which developed prior to the formation of low-angle fault-bounded allochthons. At higher structural levels this is documented by pressure shadows with straight sutures, and oppositely-rotated antitaxial calcite veins.
