A structural analysis and petrographic investigation has been performed on veins in Cretaceous carbonates in the Cordoba Platform in eastern Mexico, which is part of the Laramide foreland fold and thrust belt (FFTB). This chapter focuses on the different episodes of vein formation, vein morphology, and possible mechanisms of vein formation. Vein (fracture) formation is interpreted in relation to the kinematic evolution of the FFTB. Evidence for the development of hydrofractures during this evolution is given.

This study documents veins (fractures) related to Laramide FFTB development in the Cordoba Platform. These veins (fractures) are related to the kinematic evolution...
