Dextral movement on the Demon Fault, northeastern New South Wales: a reassessment ( Australia).

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The Demon Fault is a meridional transcurrent fault extending for at least 200 km in the E part of the New England Orogen. The S margin of the Late Permian Coombadjha Volcanic Complex, and contacts between units within it, are displaced for 23 km in a dextral sense along the Fault. In the Cooraldooral Creek area the Fault consists of at least 4 major fractures. This contrasts with the Timburra River area where the trace of the Fault is marked by an elongate zone of sheared rock 500 m wide. -Authors
