... deposits are faulted over these surfaces along the turtleback faults. Previously the turtleback faults have been interpreted as part of a thrust fault, perhaps the Amargosa thrust fault, that was arched after thrusting. They are interpreted here as individual normal faults younger than the thrust fault...

The influence of this fault in the later evolution of the Furnace Creek basin is not well determined...

We propose a six-phase tectonic history. Post-orogenic collapse...

...Martin G. Miller Abstract Although dominated by a strong late Tertiary extensional overprint, the turtlebacks of the Black Mountains of Death Valley display evidence for earlier, possibly Laramide-age, basement-involved thrust faulting. The thrust faults consist of now highly deformed contacts...
