Metre- to kilometre-scale en échelon strike-slip faults were mapped at the 1:10 000 scale in the Gánt mining area of the Vértes Hills in central Hungary. Good exposures allow detailed observation of brittle structures within the transfer zones of the overstepping fault segments. The strike-slip segments are subvertical to steeply dipping, with a rake of 20–30° accommodating a noticeable dip-slip. Displacement transfer between strike-slip faults was achieved through transtensional relay ramps, which represent a specific type of transfer zone. The breaching faults are oblique-normal or pure normal types. Their strike, dip and the obliquity of their striae change systematically....
