Understanding the kinematic development of basement-involved compressive structures that form at low temperature is dependent, in part, on gaining a better factual understanding of their deformational behavior. Results presented here show that the response of crystalline basement to deformation is incongruous among different structures in Colorado and Wyoming. At Big Thompson anticline and Rattlesnake Mountain anticline, Precambrian basement was not rotated in the anticlinal hinge during Tertiary folding. At both Banner Mountain and at a minor fold on Casper Mountain the basement has been rotated near the anticlinal hinge by as much as 26°. In the steep limb of all...
