... tuffs and andesites exposed in the eastern Panamint Mountains are correlative with the Sheephead Andesite and Rhodes Tuff in the southern Black Mountains. Reconstruction of these sequences indicates 25 to 55 km of post-9 Ma extension between the eastern Panamint and southern Black Mountains along...

... the area that later elevated as Elk Mountain, thus causing origin of Pass Creek Basin. Elk Mountain's ca. 12 km uplift could not have occurred prior to the early Eocene, and that event contributed to tight folding of the Hanna Syncline. Coal Bank Basin is a giant footwall syncline ahead of the out...
