Abstract : Results of a gravity survey in the Hot Creek Valley of Central Nevada indicates that a major, steeply dipping, range-boarding normal fault system extends the full length of the valley on its western side. The deep-rock configuration on the eastern side of the valley is partially obscured by volcanic flows, but faults are presumed there, also. The offset northern part of the trough may represent a separate basin. (Author)
