... in the central Mormon Mountains-East Mormon Mountains-Tule Springs Hills transect was controlled by two major west-dipping detachment faults: the older and structurally higher Mormon Peak detachment and the younger, structurally lower Tule Springs detachment. The Mormon Peak detachment cut gradually (5 to 25...

... Peak detachment as a typical low-angle normal fault. The hanging wall of the Mormon Peak detachment, hereafter referred to as the Mormon Peak allochthon, is composed of moderately to strongly tilted imbricate normal fault blocks ( Fig. 2 ). The fault blocks are composed primarily of Cambrian through...

... rapid exhumation at 14–13 Ma and 5.8–7.1 km of vertical exhumation. Using a range of restored fault dips (20°–28°) for the Mormon Peak detachment, the thermochronology data record 10.9–19.5 km horizontal extension. Data from the Tule Springs detachment also show a similar timing of exhumation...

... in the region. We question the basis for the published estimate of 22 km of westerly displacement on the Mormon Peak detachment fault and, on the basis of landslides in the upper plate having a probable source in the adjacent Mormon dome, constrain the heave to ~4 km. We interpret the dome and basin as coupled...
