... with the “Muddy Creek constraint,” which posits that Grand Wash Trough was internally drained prior to 6 Ma, with limited or no Colorado Plateau detritus, and that Grand Wash basin was sedimentologically distinct from Gregg and Temple basins until after 6 Ma. New isotopic data from Hualapai Limestone of Grand...

... (1921) originally used the term “Muddy Creek” to describe rocks north of Overton, Nevada. Several authors subsequently applied the term to relatively undeformed Tertiary sediments that underlie the Hualapai Limestone of Longwell (1936) throughout the region west of the Grand Wash Trough. Bohannon...

... by coalescing paleolakes in Gregg and Grand Wash Basins as sedimentation kept pace with deformation. In contrast, we find evidence suggesting the Lost Basin Range fault was deeply buried by the Hualapai Limestone and likely propagated upward and laterally to break the surface sometime after 6 Ma. Therefore, we...

... Ma. Gentle (5° and less) east dips in the lower beds of the Hualapai Limestone above and east of the paleocanyon suggest that most tilting in the western Grand Wash Trough ceased by ca. 11 Ma. The lower conglomerate of Gregg Basin lies below, and interfingers with, the limestone of Gregg Basin, which...

... of the basin includes ca. 11–8 Ma basalts interbedded with conglomerate. The ca. 6 Ma lacustrine Hualapai Limestone caps the section and indicates a profound change in sedimentation. The history of the Salt Spring Wash Basin indicates that there was a step-over geometry in the detachment fault that was linked...

Figure 10. Chemostratigraphy of the Hualapai Limestone by basin shows up-section decrease in 87 Sr/ 86 Sr (center column) in the upper ∼60 m; this is interpreted to record freshening of Grand Wash basin lake waters by input of less-radiogenic Colorado Plateau groundwater before integration
