... the Cretaceous platform of the Cuicateco region during a Late Cretaceous–Eocene orogenic event. The mylonitic complex of the Sierra de Juárez represents this hyper-stretched basement, perhaps itself an extensional allochthon. The Chiapas fold-and-thrust belt is mainly Neogene in age. Shallowing of the subduction...

Another proposal is that the Sierra de Chiapas is the transpressional front that represents the final stage in the gulf opening and is associated with the edge effect of gravity anomaly that can be observed in the overall gravimetric maps. The proposed model...
