Paleomagnetic data from three regionally extensive Oligocene ignimbrite sheets, two sequences of Miocene andesite flows, and ten sequences of Upper Miocene to Pliocene basaltic andesite flows in the Candelaria Hills and adjacent areas, west-central Nevada, provide further evidence that, since the late Miocene, and possibly between latest Miocene and earliest Pliocene time, the broad region that initially facilitated Neogene displacement transfer between the Furnace Creek and central Walker Lane fault systems experienced some 20° to 30° of clockwise vertical-axis rotation. The observed sense and magnitude of rotation are similar to those previously inferred from paleo-magnetic data from different parts of...
