The second hole is underway approximately 350 metres to the north and is currently above the low-angle fault
in Mississippian clastic rocks, which the Company's geologists believe could act as a "cap rock" by ponding mineralizing fluids beneath the low-angle fault
at this location.
Drilling on the Pozo target, a few hundred metres to the southeast of El Creston, intersected gold mineralisation associated with a low-angle fault
contact between overlying sediments and basement gneiss.
High-angle surface faults may join these major crustal low-angle faults
. Although in this region it is difficult to relate the surface motion to the seismic activity at depth.
Crustal extension along a rooted system of imbricate low-angle faults
: Colorado extensional corridor, California and Arizona.
the central part of the Tavua volcano subsided along normal faults and the mine area is dominated by a complex pattern of north- and northwest-striking steep faults, intersecting low-angle faults
known locally as "flatmakes," and shatter zones.
