The Cottage Grove fault system (Illinois Basin); late Paleozoic transpression along a Precambrian crustal boundary

The Cottage Grove fault system in southern Illinois has long been interpreted as an intracratonic dextral strike-slip fault system. We investigated its structural geometry and kinematics in detail using (1) outcrop data, (2) extensive exposures in underground coal mines, (3) abundant borehole data,... Full description
