Tectogenesis

 

(or orogenesis), the aggregate of the tectonic movements and processes that form the tectonic structures of the earth’s crust. The term “tectogenesis” was suggested by the German geologist E. Haarmann in 1930. (See.)

[1, 2] explained this phenomenon in Keyue and Zhaxikang deposits as follows: the location of ore-bearing faults is ancient hydrothermal vents, and due to the collision of the Indian and Eurasian plates, the Plateau Uplift makes the bedded orebody to be eroded, and the later tectogenesis forms the faults and destroys the orebodies to the present form.
Tectogenesis of the platform cover, including major faults, was analyzed in detail by Malkovsky et al.

This inferred provenance is consistent with the regional geological setting, as the outcome of a period of Alpine tectogenesis of the Spanish Central System (Alvaro et al., 1979).
The hills and hillocks are synclines whereas the valleys are anticlines, suggesting that there was sufficient gap between the upliftment of the IMR which is believed to be culminated during Mio-Pliocene and subsidence of the Imphal Basin in the later phase (Pleistocene?) of the IMR tectogenesis. The Valley is bounded by two prominent thrusts, the Thoubal Thrust and the Churachandpur-Mao Thrust.
Although there are not enough measurements, it is possible to assume, that the orientation of principal stress of the Variscan tectogenesis is preserved and contributes significantly to the total stress conditions in the rock mass of the Karvina part of the coal basin.
