To refine flow models for sand-dominated fault rock, we present petrophysical data of host and fault rock samples from the eolian Aztec Sandstone, Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada, that has been deformed by strike-slip faults formed by progressive shearing along joint zones. The data include bulk mineralogy, porosity, permeability, grain-size distribution, and mercury-injection capillary pressure measurements of 40 host, fragmented, and fault rock samples. To investigate the impact of shear strain on fault zone properties, three sample localities with average shear strains of 28, 63, and 80 were investigated (25-160-m [82-525-ft] slip). No bulk mineralogical changes caused by...
