Although the thrust belt in southwestern New Mexico has similarities to the thrust belt in northern Utah and western Wyoming where commercial accumulations of hydrocarbons have been found, there are also marked differences: volcanism is much more intense, and younger basin-range block faulting has probably at least partly destroyed thrust-belt. The increase was mostly in development drilling, particularly in the Mesaverde infill drilling in the San Juan basin. Exploratory drilling decreased in southwestern Colorado and western New Mexico, but was up sharply in Utah and Nevada. Exploration in the overthrust belt of Utah was very active with 3 new-field discoveries being made.

Overthrust belt of central Utah and eastern Idaho: what it is, some typical structural geometries, when it formed, and its importance in petroleum resources Uranium deposits in Mesozoic rocks of the Colorado Plateau: the characteristic of each type of uranium deposit hosted by Mesozoic rocks, where each type occurs, and how each is interpreted. for Overthrust Belt The discovery of the Covenant oil field could open up a billion-barrel oil province in an area nearly km from the nearest significant production. Prior to the discov-ery, this geologic complex area had been explored and drilled for over 50 . The Central Utah thrust belt (Utah salient) is located just east of the abrupt, western thickening of Paleozoic rocks (Fig. 5). This thickening is more abrupt than at the Canadian or Wyoming salients.   This video uses the same materials as the antiformal stack model without high basal friction to show how weak rocks, like shale, can be "badly" behaved during thrust belt .
