dc.description.abstract Eastern Sierran wall rocks in the central portion of the Slate Range have undergone several phases of Mesozoic deformation resulting in the folding and faulting of Permian (?) - Triassic (?) metasedimentary and metavolcanic rocks. Additionally, five phases of pre-, syn- and(or) post-tectonic intrusion occurred in the study area. Five generations of folding are recognized, several of which are correlative with regionally recognized structures. Early-formed fold generations, F1 , F2 and F3, are oriented in a northeasterly direction. Axial plane cleavage is developed only in the F1 generation. Fold trends changed to a northwesterly direction during the F4 generation which also has a poorly developed axial plane cleavage. The F5 generation is pervasive and is represented by kink folds, warps and minor folds. F1 folds are cut by west-trending strike- and oblique-slip faults, and both folds and faults are truncated by the northwest-striking Ophir thrust fault, which has been refolded about a N.50°W. orientation by the F4 fold generation. Three other minor thrust faults associated with this compressional phase also developed. Minor folds and mineral lineations present in Triassic (?) metavolcanic rocks indicate a northeastward direction of tectonic transport of the thrust plates. (See more in text.) en
