Abstract

Thermal and thermochronological data from the Sierra Madre Oriental indicate that a foreland basin formed on the leading edge of the fold belt during and after the late stages of the Laramide orogeny. This basin appears to have been at least 4 km thick by 50 Ma and to have reached maximum temperatures of 165° to 170°C under 5 to 7 km of burial. In areas such as the Parras and La Popa Basins, these burial amounts are in addition to the presently preserved Upper Cretaceous-Lower Tertiary section.
