      California produced more than million ounces of gold in the past worth about $ billion at today’s gold prices (Hill and others, )! In addition to gold, the state yielded by-product platinum, sapphire and benitoite from its serpentinite belt in the Sierra Nevada. Slip on the Nacimiento fault of the central Coast Ranges of California has been variably interpreted as dextral, sinistral, or reverse. The currently prevailing interpretation is that the Nacimiento fault represents subduction erosion, by which the central to eastern part of the Cretaceous California batholith was thrust over the western part of the batholith and forearc Cited by: 2.

The transfer (accretion) of materials from a subducting oceanic plate to a subduction-accretionary complex has produced rock assemblages recording the history of the subducted oceanic plate from formation to arrival at the trench.

These same rocks are widely exposed in the Basin and Range to the immediate east, including within the White, Inyo, and Argus Mountains, and in many of the small peaks that dot the Mojave Desert.
