A late Paleozoic fault duplex forms a structural culmination in the Blue Ridge-Piedmont thrust plate near Cartersville, Georgia. The duplex contains at least three major lens-shaped horses, stacked vertically and bounded by faults that branch from the sole of the Blue Ridge-Piedmont plate. The duplex telescopes older Paleozoic structures and metamorphic fabrics that are related to Taconic thrusting of the Blue Ridge over the North American shelf. The duplex, embedded in the sole of the Blue Ridge-Piedmont plate, may have been detached from the area of the Pine Mountain window in the central Georgia Piedmont, and horizontally displaced 130 km during formation of the Valley and Ridge fold and thrust belt.
