Constraining the location of the Archean--Proterozoic suture in the Great Basin based on magnetotelluric soundings

A regional profile on the Utah-Nevada State line reveals a deeply penetrating, broad electrical conductor suggesting the southwestern limit of intact Archean crust is farther north than previously reported with implications for future mineral exploration.
