... in the Lingshi region of northwest Bhutan (referred to here as the Shemgang, Dang Chu, and Lingshi exposures; Fig. 1B ). The Chekha Formation consists of non-migmatitic, garnet- and locally staurolite-bearing quartzite, schist, marble, and calc-silicate, and is interpreted to be of lower metamorphic grade than...

... the petrologic arguments for large displacements, at least in the eastern Himalaya. Near the western boundary of Bhutan, the trace of the STFS is apparently offset ∼70 km across a NNE-SSW–trending graben, the Yadong cross structure. This offset has been attributed by previous authors to left-lateral slip along...
