... in different lithologies of the footwall block ( Fig. 8a , e , i ). This suggests that deformation at the northern terminus of the Saltville thrust is approximately coaxial. Fold-cleavage relations establish three generations of folds. The regional Sinking Creek anticline is a first-generation structure...

... in Virginia. The two median belts directly autochthonous to the Saltville thrust show the most complete sections, containing in some areas all of the lithologic and faunal units of the standard section of Tazewell County, Virginia. Evidence of a large hiatus was observed in the northwest belts...

... greenschist facies are contained in only two thrust sheets: all of the Saltville and part of the Pulaski. Because subgreenschist rocks of the Saltville and Pulaski thrust sheets appear to be confined to the subsurface of the Blue Ridge and westward, it is most likely that rocks with commercial gas potential...

The formation consists of thick clastics, the shales apparently serving as the loci of thrusting along several of the northwest thrust blocks of Tennessee. The overlying...

... potential reservoir horizons have been identified on surface exposures, but remain untested. Major faults, including the Saltville and Pulaski thrusts, have as much as 16,000 ft (4,877 m) of displacement, suggesting potential structural traps in the largely allochthonous belt. Excluding the Early Grove gas...
