..., and regional geologic relations, we suggest that extensional deformation is related to Late Proterozoic rifting of the Laurentian margin. The kinematic histories of the Rockfish Valley fault zone and related shear zones appear to be relatively simple and consistent with Paleozoic west- to northwest-directed...

Geologic features in the central Blue Ridge massif that are similar to those in the northern Blue Ridge include a central fault zone, the Rockfish Valley fault zone, separating a more...

... Along a transect across the central Virginia Blue Ridge complex, the terrane is divisible into two discrete massifs—the Pedlar and the Lovingston, which are separated by the mid-Paleozoic Rockfish Valley fault. The Pedlar Massif is characterized by two major lithologies—an older volcanic...

... in the Lovingston massif are related to a broad igneous protolith, represented by the Stage Road Suite, from which remobilized magmatic bodies were derived during orogenesis. Chemical data further indicate that Neoproterozoic intrusions and/or mylonitization along the Rockfish Valley fault had only minor local...

... Rockfish Valley-Fries fault system, along major sections of the Fries fault the only concrete evidence for thrusting is in the form of late-stage shear bands that crosscut the earlier, extension-related mylonitic fabric. We suggest that the entire Rockfish Valley-Fries fault zone formed during the late...
