A preliminary study of focal mechanisms of small earthquakes in the central Nevada region
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1967)
First arrivals suggest that normal and right-lateral movement was occurring on the Fairview Fault, except at the southern end, where it appears that reverse faulting is occurring.
Geology of the Lantern property near Scossa mining district, Pershing County, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1985)
The Lantern property and Scossa mining district o-f northern Pershing County, Nevada, exhibit gold-silver mineralization characteristic o-f epithermal systems. Mineralized boulders deposited as clasts in a mid-Tertiary ...

Geology of a uranium deposit in the Virginia Mountains, Washoe County, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1956)
The rocks found in the area of study are mainly Mio-Pliocene welded rhyolite tuffs and are part of the acid and intermediate pyroclastic rocks that cover much of west central Nevada. Uranium minerals have been found in the ...
Scarp degradation and fault history south of Carson City, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1979)
Examination of faults south of Carson City indicates that scarps erode more rapidly in non-indurated alluvium and that Pleistocene soils, developed on older scarps, prevent scarp degradation and result in faults with steeper ...
Quaternary and environmental geology of Lemmon Valley, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1978)
Over 1000 vertical feet of loose to weakly consolidated Tertiary and Quaternary sediments occupy the closed Lemmon Valley basin. Mountains comprising Mesozoic granitic and metavolcanic rocks border the valley. Fourteen ...
Quaternary geology and neotectonic activity along the Fish Lake Valley fault zone, Nevada and California
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1990)
The right-divergent Fish Lake Valley fault zone (FL VFZ), a 80 KM-long component of the northern Death Valley fault system, comprises contemporaneous NW-striking dextral faults, N-striking normal faults, NE-striking ...
