The Grizzly Creek shear zone is a newly discovered Proterozoic structure coincident with the southern margin of the Laramide White River uplift in west-central Colorado. The shear zone includes a 10-15 m basal mylonite oriented 255/44°NW that truncates foliation and magmatic fabrics in the footwall. The mylonite is overlain by >400 m of moderately north-dipping tectonites dominated by protomylonitic to mylonitic gneiss intercalated with mainly concordant pseudotachylyte veins and cmscale ultramylonite bands. At the upper boundary of the shear zone, the high-strain tectonic fabrics grade into relatively undeformed rocks of the hanging wall. The shear zone separates supracrustal gneisses...
