      The province includes most of Nevada, and parts of Utah, Arizona, California, Oregon, Idaho, New Mexico, and Texas (see Fig. 1). It is bounded on the E by the Wasatch Mountains, the Colorado Plateau, and the western edge of the Great Plains of Texas and New Mexico; [and] on the W by the Cascade, Sierra Nevada. Cenozoic extensional deformation, accompanied by sedimentation and volcanism, resulted in large-magnitude high- and low-angle normal faulting and strike-slip faulting in the Basin and Range; on the Colorado Plateau, extension produced north-trending high-angle normal faults.

Along the north shore of Lake Mead exists an ancient volcano, long dormant but very intriguing. The Hamblin-Cleopatra Volcano (HCV) was once a large stratovolcano and now has split into three large sections due to earthquake faults in the area.

Tertiary deformation in the Lake Mead region is primarily Miocene in age and includes normal faults, detachment faults, strike-slip faults and volcanoes and dikes. The presence of detachment faults has been described in nearby areas (Wernicke et al.,Faulds et al.,Faulds et al.,Duebendorfer and Simpson, ).
