dc.description.abstractThe extreme northwestern part of the Candelaria area belongs to the Mexican Highland province; its structure is the result of Laramide orogeny. The rest, consisting of northward trending fault blocks and intervening basins where waste from the fault block accumulates, is characteristic of the Basin and Range province. The Candelaria area stood above the sea in early Cambrian time, probably during late Pennsylvanian-early Permian time, and in post Permian pre-late-Jurassic time when it was a part of the Wichita pale oplain, and it has been emergent since Laramide time. Oil may be trapped at the subsurface unconformities. In early Tertiary time, the area was covered by volcanic material, and in later Tertiary time, epieroganic uplift and normal faulting formed the Basin and Range structure of the present-day surfaceen_US
