... information about Laramide tectonics in the northern Rocky Mountain foreland and has implications for models of fault-propagation folding and the development of synorogenic basins in thrust-faulted terranes. During the Laramide orogeny, the Beartooth Conglomerate was deposited by alluvial fans and a coarse...

... of the Beartooth Mountains have had a long history of development. Most of them were outlined by shear zones at least as early as 1,700 m.y. ago; the Pine Creek Lake-Mount Cowen block was split by the Marten Peak reverse fault during D 4 (post-1,176 m.y.); major wrench movements accentuated the westerly...

... left-lateral tear faults. Near Gardiner a high-angle thrust plane dipping northeast bounds part of the southwest Beartooth. Several structural mechanisms apparently operated during deformation: (1) Uplifting, tilting, and depressing of large crustal blocks. These commonly form ramps from the Beartooth...

...CLARENCE J CASELLA Abstract The Line Creek area is at the eastern margin of the Beartooth Mountain block, Montana and Wyoming. The range front here changes in trend from due north to N. 45° E. The Precambrian rocks of the range were uplifted and thrust toward the Bighorn basin during Laramide time...

The fault dip is probably in the 10-15° range based on dipmeter readings on carbonate slices in its immediate footwall. The fault zone...
