As a continuation of the themes from the preceding “Mesozoic Tectonism and Structural relations” session, this session aims to convey the structural controls on ore deposits in the Basin and Range region, exploring both inherited fold-thrust patterns as well as the effects of subsequent Tertiary extension which together localize deposits and influence ore distribution within orebodies in the region.
