Abstract

In the White Basin of southern Nevada, where extensive borax deposits were discovered a few years ago, the depression is formed by a huge drop-fault block, in which the displacement is more than 1000 feet and there appears a curious set of oblique faults which meet the major side-fault at an angle of 45 degrees. The strata being inclined about 30 degrees renders the direction of movement conspicuous. This is horizontal.
