Two major deformational events affected the metamorphic rocks of the Rush Creek drainage. Dl deformation formed a series of northeast trending folds during the mid-Paleozoic Antler orogeny. D2 deformation formed northwest trending main phase F2 folds and S2 cleavages and late phase small scale folds and crenulations during the Late-Jurassic Nevadan orogeny. The Gem Lake shear zone is a sequence of highly deformed and mylonitic rocks making a ductile shear zone between the Rush Creek sequence and the overlying Koip sequence. Planer zones of high strain are possibly Dl and D2 deformation thrust faults.
