At least % nearly east-west extension of late Cenozoic age has been accommodated by down-to-the-east normal and oblique-slip faults in the central Wassuk Range. One northwest striking, right-lateral strike-slip fault probably contributes an additional component of WNW-ESE slip.

Geologic and tectonic History The Wassuk Range (Figure 2.) is a nearly N-S trending moun-tain range on the western margin of the Basin and Range Province at the latitude of Lake Tahoe.

The total extension accommodated across the central Wassuk Range since the middle Miocene is >%, with only a brief period of dextral fault activity during the late Miocene. Late Cenozoic Structure and Evolution of the Great Basin – Sierra Nevada Transition Edited by J.S.

Upper‐Crustal Thermal Structure of the Southern Wassuk Range [42] The WR and PGH were part of the Sierra Nevada prior to middle Miocene extension and therefore probably experienced a similar pre‐extensional thermal history and post‐Cretaceous geothermal gradient of.

The lofty Wassuk Range, with up to m of relief, bounds the basin on the west, and the lower-relief (~Range occurs on the east (Fig. The Gillis Range principally consists of complexly faulted Triassic-Jurassic metavoleanic sequences unconformably overlain by Oligo-Miocene ash- flow tuff intervals (Hardyman, ).

The Walker Lake basin is a complex half-graben, bound on the west by the Wassuk Range-front fault system and defined to the east by a broad, gently west-dipping ramp, cut locally by west-dipping antithetic faults ().Within the map area, the Wassuk Range-front fault bifurcates into two major strands from the Lucky Boy Mine area to the mouth of Cat Canyon (Faults A and B1, Fig.

The amount of late Cenozoic extension across the Great Basin is strongly heterogeneous, and in the region of the southern arc segment varies from ∼10% (northeast California–northwest Nevada; Colgan et al., ) to >% (Yerington district–northern Wassuk Range; Proffett, ; Dilles and Gans, ).

During the late Pleistocene, the absence of such information indicates that ponderosa pine forest was nearly or entirely absent from the northern and central Rockies, the Great Basin, the Mojave Desert, the Colorado Plateau, and the Chihuahuan Desert (Wells, a; Van Devender et al., ; Thompson, ; Anderson et al., ).

Late Eocene extension may have contributed more extensional strain than the mid-Miocene event in other parts of the Great Basin, including areas of east-central Nevada that are south of Spruce Mountain, such as the northern Egan Range and the Robinson district (Gans and Miller, ; Gans et al.,).
