As shown in Figures 1 and 2, the property is located entirely within Jurassic magmatic arc (Anderson et al., ; Haxel et al., ; Tosdal et al., ), directly northeast of the megashear.

Basement outcrops are rare in northeastern Mexico, but the effect of older basement structures on the current structural plan is clear.

    Slip on the Nacimiento fault of the central Coast Ranges of California has been variably interpreted as dextral, sinistral, or reverse. The currently prevailing interpretation is that the Nacimiento fault represents subduction erosion, by which the central to eastern part of the Cretaceous California batholith was thrust over the western part of the batholith and forearc basin, resulting in Cited by: 2.

The Mojave-Sonora Megashear Hypothesis: Development, Assessment, and Alternatives Author(s) Evidence for Mojave-Sonora megashear—Systematic left-lateral offset of Neoproterozoic to Lower Jurassic strata and facies, western United States and northwestern Mexico.

The Mojave-Sonora megashear hypothesis is one of the most influential models concerning the geology of México. The hypothesis proposed in the early s (Silver and Anderson, ) suggests that there is a NW-SE–oriented system of left-lateral strike-slip faults extending from the Mojave Desert, in California, across northern known today, this fault system connects with a.

Our research incorporated U-Pb isotopic analyses of more than 70 zircon populations separated from 33 Precambrian rock samples with field relations and maps based upon structural and stratigraphic measurements.
