Introduction
The potential of fault rocks to delimit
the timing of tectonic events has ad-
vanced significantly since the quintes-
sential fault-rock classification schemes
of Sibson (1977) and Wise et al. (1984).
Various isotopic dating methods can be
applied to fault rocks to generate abso-
lute ages of fault genesis and have been
used with some success on mylonitic
