Oil and gas ranging in age from Pennsylvanian to Upper Cretaceous have been found in these structures. Only 7 wells have been drilled in the deeper part of the Hanna...

... along the northern Hanna Basin. North-vergent, out-of-the-basin thrust faults developed in response to crowding initiated by the much larger, south-vergent, basement-involved thrust complex known as the Shirley Fault. Those out-of-the-basin thrust faults had mostly bedding-parallel planes...

On this trip we focus on relations for two rock types within the Sevier fold-thrust belt, red beds...

Several anticlines in the basin display closely spaced extensional faults on their crests ( Figure 14A, B ). These faults, which are well imaged over the Cocuite structure, are also evident on 2-D lines over other...

... are oblique to the average northwesterly trend of foreland faults and folds. Tectonic models predict that these arches formed by one of the following mechanisms: north-south–directed thrust faulting; sinistral strike-slip faulting; or northeast-southwest–directed, oblique-slip thrust faulting. In the eastern...

Early Neogene thrusting south of the basin triggered evacuation of Oligocene shale along northwest-dipping listric faults in the eastern and southeastern basin margin. These faults are associated with large-scale...

The accumulation of D2 sequence arkose may be coincident with uplift in the Pikes Peak area and eastward thrusting of the Ute Pass fault. An alternative...

Anticlines are linked across structural saddles (relay zones) that are locally cut by steep east-striking oblique-slip faults and thrust faults that accommodated shortening transfer. Minor wedge faults within limestone show consistent relationships with respect...
