Field mapping supplemented by aerial photograph interpretation has delineated exposures of three bedrock formations of Jurassic age and eight informal surficial units of Quaternary age in the scenic Elephant Butte quadrangle. Structure is relatively simple and consists of a gentle northeast-dipping homo cline broken by high-angle extensional faults with small displacements and joints with dominant north-northeast and north-northwest trends.
