.... Faults of the Jomolhari fault system were traced from ASTER VNIR data and high-resolution visible imagery from Google Earth. All faults are shown with a down-to-the-northwest shear sense (following previous mapping by Wu et al., 1998 ). The Lingshi fault was mapped in the Wagye La area following...

...F.J. Cooper; K.V. Hodges; B.A. Adams Abstract The South Tibetan fault system, a family of primarily extensional faults that separates the metamorphic core of the Himalaya (expressed as the Greater Himalayan sequence) from overlying, predominantly unmetamorphosed Tibetan sedimentary sequence units...

... al., 1998 ); studies of seismicity find distributed mid-crustal strike-slip deformation across southern Bhutan ( Velasco et al., 2007 ; Drukpa et al., 2006 ). Magnetic remanence in western Bhutan requires clockwise vertical-axis rotation, consistent with left-lateral slip on the Lingshi fault...

... thermochronology from Triassic–Jurassic TH rocks near Lingshi and from a granite sill in the Chekha Formation indicate cooling through ∼425 °C at ca. 13–11 Ma ( Kellett et al., 2009 ; Antolín et al., 2012 ). On the northwestern margin of the Lingshi exposure, TH rocks are offset by the Lingshi fault ( Fig. 1C...

The final intrusive event in the MMB appears to have been a suite of highly alkaline nepheline-bearing syenites that occasionally contain gem-quality sapphires. Alluvial diamonds have been discovered, with no clear source...
