Figures
1  Map showing northwestern Nevada the locations of figures 
   2 and 11. Also shown, in the inset outline of Nevada, are
   the locations of the arkosic triangle and the area shown 
   in figure ................................................... 12
2  Map showing the central part of the East Range modified 
   from Whitebread (1994), Whitebread and Sorensen (1983),
   and Johnson (1977) ........................................... 6
3-10. Photographs showing:
3  Sheared arkosic sandstone from the lower Inskip Formation.
   Clasts are quartz, quartzite, K-feldspar, and plagioclase .... 7
4  Unpolarized view of figure .................................. 37
5  Coarse arkosic sandstone from a massive bed in the lower
   Inskip Formation. This specimen shows no evidence of
   shear. Crossed polarizers .................................... 7
6  Chert from the uppermost part of the Inskip Formation. 
   The carbon-rich stylolites are preserved in this specimen,
   and radiolarians are sporadically preserved in others. 
   The only effect of the relatively slight metamorphism
   was to slightly increase the grain size. Unpolarized ......... 8
7  Metabasalt from the upper member of the Inskip Formation. 
   Megacrysts are magnesian hornblende, groundmass is albite 
   and ilmenite. This specimen shows slight evidence of shear.
   Crossed polarizers ........................................... 8
8  Relatively unsheared porphyritic felsite from the upper
   part of the Inskip Formation. Megacrysts are albite, 
   groundmass is quartz and biotite. Crossed polarizers ......... 8
9  Sheared felsite from the lower part of the Inskip 
   Formation. Light bands are albite and quartz, medium bands
   are muscovite, dark bands are biotite. Uncrossed 
   polarizers ................................................... 8
10 Sheared porphyritic felsite from the Rochester Rhyolite at
   the base of the Triassic sequence immediately overlying the
   Inskip Formation. Megacrysts are albite, groundmass is 
   albite, quartz, and muscovite. Crossed polarizers ............ 9
11 Generalized and simplified map showing part of the Hot 
   Springs Range modified from Jones (1997a, b) showing the
   Hot Springs Range syncline and the northern Hot Springs 
   Range anticline ............................................. 12

Tables

   East Range, Nevada .......................................... 10
2  Chemical composition of metafelsites of the Inskip 
   Formation and the Triassic Rochester Rhyolite, East Range ... 11
