"Compressional folds and faults of the Sierra de Perijaare strongly aligned in a trend bearing about N. 35 degrees E. Combined in the range with this longitudinal pattern are several local or less prominent trends of faulting and disturbance. South-trending faults branch from the longitudinal faults in the northern part of the range, and emerge into the Maracaibo basin. Crossing through the southern and south-central part of the range is a system of transverse faults related to the Arena Blanca trend defined in the Cesar valley. The east-trending transverse Oca fault system crosses and terminates the north end of the range."
