Project MapA 450-km line on 199 RT-125 ``Texan'' recorders, extending from Auburn, Calif. to the Barrick GoldStrike mine in north-central Nevada. Quarry blasts at the GoldStrike mine and a quarry near Watsonville, Calif. provide a near-reversed profile of P-wave arrival times crossing the Northern Sierra Nevada, Northern Walker Lane, and the Battle Mountain heat-flow high.
