We document a previously unrecognized, thin-skinned arc-continental collisional zone, termed here the Colon fold-thrust belt, which trends northeastward for 350 km near the Honduras-Nicaragua border region. The Colon belt occurs in three collinear segments: (1) a 200-km-long belt of remote but well-exposed Jurassic–Late Cretaceous rock outcrops described from original geologic mapping presented in this study; (2) a 75-km-long subsurface belt of Jurassic–Late Cretaceous rocks known from onland… CONTINUE READING
