Description:
The Huckitta region study area in central Australia (Fig. 1) occupies the boundary zone between highly deformed, predominantly Mesoproterozoic crystalline basement of the Arunta Province and unmetamorphosed Neoproterozoic to Paleozoic sedimentary cover rocks of the Georgina Basin (Freeman, 1986). The southeastern Arunta Province experienced strong ductile deformation, including the development of recumbent, basement-involved, thrust nappes, during the mid-Paleozoic Alice Springs intraplate orogeny (e.g. Dunlap et al., 1995). In the Huckitta region, in contrast, deformation was characterized by basement block uplift on high-angle reverse faults, forming an array of predominantly north-northwesttrending, west-up, reverse faults, with east-northeast-trending, south-up, cross faults. Reverse faults, including the Oomoolmilla Fault, the Lucy Creek Fault, and the Mount Playford Fault, appear to have developed by reactivation and structural inversion of preexisting Neoproterozoic rift-bounding normal faults.
