Formatted Abstract/Summary

Simple Bouguer gravity anomalies, established with an error of ±0.65 mGals at 398 stations in the southern portion of the Esk Trough, have been used to delineate the regional structure of the trough. The fault system which bounds the trough in the east is postulated to be a low angle reverse fault, with its surface expression several km to the west of the mapped location of the Eastern Border Fault. The Western Border Fault System is interpreted as the result of nonnal-type faulting. It is proposed that wrench-fault tectonics explain most satisfactorily the formation of the Esk Trough.
