Abstract

Devil’s Hole is an open fault zone adjacent to a major ground-water discharge area in south-central Nevada; it is located approximately 115 km west-northwest of Las Vegas, Nevada. This open fissure is lined with a thick (>0.3 m) layer of dense calcite that has precipitated continuously from calcite-supersaturated ground water. These deposits exist down to depths in excess of 130 m below the water table (which is ∼ 15m below land surface) and are believed to correspond to a timespan of more than the past 500,000 years (Winograd et al., 1992).
