Both with the US Geological Survey, Poole and Sandberg examine in detail two small areas, both less than 25 kilometers east of the Mississippian Roberts Mountains allochthon, but each displaying a different, unique geologic terrane previously undocumented in Nevada and perhaps in North America. One area, the Bisoni-McKay, at the south end of the Fish Creek Range, displays an olistostrome, shed eastward during the Late Devonian (early Famennian) from a migrating Antler orogenic forebulge. The other area, the Warm Springs-Milk Spring, at the south end of the Hot Creek Range, displays a deeper marine terrane affected by the Late Devonian (middle Frasnian) Alamo impact. Both areas are accessible to cars, they say, and this volume includes two large fold-out maps. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
