The Getchell fault system consists of several major faults extending for more than 25 km along the eastern side of the Osgood Mountains. Movement on the fault system has been complex and largely dip slip in character. The emplacement of igneous rocks and subsequent gold deposits was controlled by the fault system; dating of the igneous rocks indicates that the fault system existed in Late Cretaceous time.
