GSA Bulletin (1959) 70 (12): 1497–1508.
... 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...

...Martin G. Miller Abstract The late Cenozoic Badwater Turtleback fault separates an upper plate of volcanic and sedimentary rocks from a lower plate of predominantly mylonitic plutonic and metamorphic rocks. The Turtleback fault, however, is not a single continuous surface, but consists of at least...

...MARTIN G. MILLER Abstract Field relations in the footwall of the Badwater Turtleback fault provide evidence that macroscopically ductile deformation was directly responsible for early stages of brittle faulting during extensional denudation. Footwall rocks, which are typically mylonitie, consist...

...Martin G. Miller Abstract Fault gouge along the Badwater Turtleback fault system displays abundant evidence for mesoscopic ductility, as foliation, isolated and/or rotated inclusions, and isoclinal folds. Fault-gouge thicknesses also vary dramatically. At the outcrop scale, gouge thicknesses can...

... are added to previously published cooling paths of the Copper Canyon turtleback and Mormon Point turtleback, a northwest cooling pattern is broadly evident, consistent with a top-to-NW removal of the hanging wall along a detachment fault. We propose a six-phase tectonic history. Post-orogenic collapse...
