Abstract: Data from a 12 day passive seismic survey were collected near Tuscarora approximately 95 km northwest of Elko, Nevada. The high seismicity detected was characterized by extensive clustering activity. Poisson's ratio and focal mechanism that indicate a seismically active fault intersection with extensive field saturation 2.5 km northeast of Hot Sulphur Springs.
