Abstract

To understand the origin of Mountain Lake in light of previous hypotheses, the AA. examine the regional and local geology of the drainage basin. Field reconnaissance was followed by structural analysis. Fracture-trace analysis reveals a regional lineation feature associated with the lake. Hydrologic observation and resistivity suggest preferential water movement along this fracture. This study therefore suggests conduit erosion within this feature and periodic vertical downsettling of overlying Clinch material as the primary mechanism of lake origin and water-level fluctuations through time
