... Deployment of temporary seismic stations after the 2011 Mineral, Virginia (USA), earthquake produced a well-recorded aftershock sequence. The majority of aftershocks are in a tabular cluster that delineates the previously unknown Quail fault zone. Quail fault zone aftershocks range from ~3 to 8...

... of aftershocks along the brittle Quail fault that followed the 2011 Virginia earthquake. Internal to the Chopawamsic Formation, this Bend of River high-strain zone coincides in three dimensions with the aftershock-defined fault plane for the 2011 event. The spatial coincidence of the modern seismogenic surface...

The main shock and majority of aftershocks delineated the newly named Quail fault zone in the subsurface, and shallow aftershocks defined...

In the late Miocene, fault death at ca. 10 Ma followed rotation of the South Virgin–White Hills fault, and the along-strike Quail Spring fault, from...
