An early generation of probably recumbent isoclinal folds and veined and slickensided faults has now been documented at several localities in the western Taconic Allochthon. These folds and thrust faults predate development of the “regional” slaty cleavage and associated folds. The early generation of structures either predates or developed synchronously with obduction of the Taconic Allochthon on the coeval early Paleozoic shelf of eastern North America during early stages of the Taconic… CONTINUE READING
