Abstract : Results of the fault study in Nevada and Utah show that all valleys in the MX deployment area have faults that have been active in Quaternary time. Earthquakes in the 7-7 3/4 magnitude have occurred in the study area during late Quaternary time. Quaternary faults trend North-South and are parallel to the regional Great Basin structural fabric.
