Report on newly discovered Little Chino fault
AZGS has released a map and report on the newly discovered “Little Chino fault” that borders the northeast margin of Chino Valley, north of Prescott.
AZGS geologists are now studying the geochronology along the Little Chino fault and continue mapping in the Prescott-Paulden area as part of our work on the USGS funded Statemap cooperative program.
The map and report are available in PDF format at the Arizona Geological Survey Document Repository: http://repository.azgs.az.gov.
