The timing, distribution, and extent of Mesozoic (Jurassic-Cretaceous) deformation in the northern Great Basin is a matter of dispute and uncertainty in many areas. In particular, recent studies have documented that Jurassic shortening structures are more widespread than previously recognized in north-central and northeast Nevada. Establishing a more defined history of Mesozoic deformation across this region has implications both for the tectonic history and the localization of younger Carlin and epithermal deposits (see part 2 of this session).
