Abstract

The accompanying map shows nine areas where fault scarps formed in unconsolidated sediments in the Elko 1°x2° quadrangle, northeastern Nevada and westernmost Utah.  The faulted sediments include pebbly to bouldery colluvium, alluvium, and pediment gravels.  They are inferred to have been deposited in Quaternary time during the last phase of basin-filling sedimentation.
