The N20øW-trending Panamint Valley fault zone is linked to the N60øW-trending Hunter Mountain strike-slip fault and the Saline Valley fault system, which represents one of the three major fault systems accommodating active crustal extension in the southern Great Basin. A 25 km-long zone of fault scarps along the southern Panamint valley fault zone is recognized as the surface rupture zone associated with the most recent prehistoric earthquake. The displacement associated with the most recent… CONTINUE READING
