- Kirkham, Robert M., 1977.  

This is appoximately the center of the NE1/4 SW1/4 Sect 28, T3S, R70W. Somewhere in this quarter-quarter are the locations of two trenches dug to explore a small graben of Quaternary age, thought to be related to the Golden fault. Excavations revealed a complex geologic picture suggesting two periods of fault rupture with a total of 5.5 m of displacement. Dating of zircons and glass shards from an ash deposited in the graben and disrupted by faulting yielded dates of 0.6 to 0.7 million years, suggesting faulting occurred more recently than those dates (Kirkham, 1977).
