The subhorizontal and subvertical joints close to the excavation act as stress barriers and stress elevators at specific locations, hence shaping the formed damaged zone.
Additionally, the 2012 geological survey identified a fault zone in the SE of the Syncline center; this fault zone has also been detected in at least one of our ERT profiles (the one shown in Figure 9(c)); according to our estimates, this fault zone should be subvertical while the geological survey assumed a NW-oriented dip.

El buzamiento dominante en las zonas de cizalla es alto, inclinandose ligeramente al E, pero llegando en algunos casos a ser subvertical. Debido a sus limites difusos no se pudo determinar el ancho preciso de las zonas de cizalla, aunque su espesor es del orden de varias decenas de metros.

The faults are characterized by subvertical dips, 2 to 4 m-wide fault gouge and breccia, extensive damage zones, linear surface depressions over the fault core, and evidence of strike-slip movement.
