Ketobe Knob thrust fault

Ketobe Knob, a reverse fault (thrust fault) system at Cedar Mountain, northwestern extent of San Rafael Swell within the western bounds of the Colorado Plateau, Emery County, Utah, USA. Mainly sandstones and some of the conglomerate layer tongued near the fault. Middle to Late Jurassic. The light-colored member of the Curtis Formation is on top of the red Entrada Sandstone. It contains several fault planes and drag folds. The vertical offset of the most obvious fault is approximately 10 meters. The fault may be attributed to the Sevier orogeny (Neuhauser, 1988).
