...GOMAA I. OMAR; TIMOTHY M. LUTZ; ROBERT GIEGENGACK Abstract The crystalline rocks of the Beartooth overthrust in southwest Montana and northwest Wyoming were uplifted and thrust over the northwest margin of the Bighorn basin during the Laramide orogeny. The timing and geometry of that event is well...

The Beartooth uplift of Montana and Wyoming ( Figure 1 ) is a 60 x 125 km Precambrian crystalline mass that was once covered by 3-4 km of mostly marine Phanerozoic sedimentary rocks ( Foose et al., 1961 ). During the Laramide orogeny, the area achieved...
