Abstract

Tucki Mountain lies within the central portion of the Death Valley extended terrain. Its structure is dominated by the Cenozoic Tucki Mountain detachment system, a complex and long-lived extensional feature which places weakly metamorphosed-unmetamorphosed strata on middle to upper greenschist facies metamorphic rocks. Detailed analysis of tectonites in the footwall of the detachment system has led to the identification of 7 phases of ductile structures. The earliest are latest Mesozoic-earliest Tertiary(?) isoclinal folds and associated schistosity which may have been related to compressional deformation. All subsequent generations of structures developed during Cenozoic extension at intermediate-upper crustal levels.- from Authors
