... with the eastern limit of Mesa Central and with the trace of the Taxco–San Miguel de Allende fault system ( Alaniz-Álvarez et al., 2002 ). Also, the boundary between the Mesozoic Basin of Central México and the Mesozoic volcanosedimentary sequence approximately follows the trace of the San LuisTepehuanes fault...

... Transversal de Parras and major fault systems active during the Cenozoic to the E, W, and S. A major structure, the San LuisTepehuanes fault system, separates the northern and southern regions of Mesa Central. The majority of the mineral deposits found in Mesa Central or in its vicinities, especially...

..., as magmatism extended into these areas. The clearest example is the climactic magmatism of the Oligocene centered on the San Luis-Tepehuanes fault system, but this association is also evident for deposits as old as Late Cretaceous in the same region. Other remarkable examples of reactivated faults as effective...

...%. By the Late Miocene, extension became focused in the westernmost part of the Sierra Madre Occidental, adjacent to the Gulf of California, where NNW-striking normal fault systems produced both ENE and WSW tilt domains separated by transverse accommodation zones. It is worth noting that most of the extension...

... of the Nazas Formation at the Cerritos Colorados, Durango, in northern Mexico. He determined North American pole positions that provided indirect evidence of possibly Late Triassic but probably Jurassic ages for the Nazas arc rocks in this region. In the states of San Luis Potosí and Zacatecas in central...

... the tectonics of the oceanic margin of western México. The authors also consider the mineral deposits of the region, indicating their spatial and temporal association with two major structures which bound the plateau: the San LuisTepehuanes fault and the Taxco–San Miguel de Allende fault system. The paper...

... with regional faults. That is the case of the Mesa Central or Mexican Altiplano, a geological province that is bounded by several major N-S and WNW-ESE fault zones (namely, Bajío fault, Aguas calientes graben, and the large Taxco–San Miguel de Allende, and San LuisTepehuanes fault zones) from the surrounding...
