Abstract

A major bedding-plane fault, here named the Tuscarora fault, is present over a large area in south-central Pennsylvania. K-Ar dating of mylonite from the fault zone suggests that movement may be related to folding and faulting in earliest Mississippian time in central Pennsylvania. Subsequent orogeny in late Paleozoic time deformed and obscured these structures.
