Number of Pages
This investigation is concerned with a detailed study of the stratigraphy, structure, and paleontology of Lower and Middle Paleozoic miogeosynclinal sediments in east-central Nevada. Seven formations of predominantly clastic carbonate composition were mapped in the vicinity of the southern portion of Martins Ridge. A limited petrographic study of the Tertiary volcanic rocks was conducted.
Martins Ridge is a normal-faulted, west-dipping homocline conical evidence suggest that Antelope Valley is a graben containing approximately 2,000 feet of valley fill. Combined geologic and geophysical evidence indicates that Martins Ridge is the west limb of a large anticlinal structure which once spanned Antelope Valley.
