The late Eocene to early Miocene Renova Formation records initial post-Laramide sediment accumulation in the intermontane basin province of southwest Montana. Recent studies that postulate deposition of the Renova Formation were restricted to a broad, low-relief, tectonically quiescent basin on the eastern shoulder of an active rift zone vastly differ from traditional models in which the Renova Formation was deposited in individual intermontane basins separated by basin-bounding uplands.

This study utilizes detrital zircon geochronology to resolve the paleogeography of the Renova Formation. Detrital zircon was selected as a detrital tracer that can be used to differentiate between multiple potential sources...
