Description:
The northern Confusion Range is located in the Basin and Range of west-central Utah, east of and structurally above the Snake Range metamorphic core complex. The Confusion Range is comprised of Cambrian through Triassic strata, with lower Paleozoic (lPz) units consisting primarily of mechanically strong, thickly-bedded carbonates and upper Paleozoic (uPz) units predominantly weaker shales and sandstones along with thinly bedded carbonates. The northern Confusion Range has previously been interpreted as a structural synclinorium in which gravity slumping resulted in convoluted recumbent folds of the uPz strata, although more recent interpretations have emphasized the role of Mesozoic thrusting. We use existing mapping and new field data to construct a balanced and retrodeformable cross section across the northern Confusion Range and Tule Valley to the eastern margin of the House Range. Our work indicates that the northern Confusion Range is an east-vergent fold-and-thrust belt of Sevier age overprinted by Basin and Range extension.
