Growing evidence shows that these metamorphic terranes and related features evolved in part during early to middle Tertiary time (55 to 15 m.y. B.P.), that is, after the Laramide orogeny but before basin-range faulting.

These terranes have been termed "metamorphic core complexes." Cordilleran Metamorphic Core Complexes Author(s) Max D. Crittenden, Jr.; Max D. Crittenden, Jr. Search for other works by this author on: GSW. Google Scholar. Peter J. Coney; Peter J.

Crittenden, Jr., Peter J. Coney Geologic data at several core complexes have been used to infer very high slip rates (8–30 mm/a) on these faults [e.g., Lister and Davis, ].
