Tracing outcrops of shear zone were used to describe the geometry and structure of the Median Tectonic Line in Mima area, eastrn Shikoku. A distinct new fault outcrop was discovered between the Mino and Ikuchi Faults at the northern slope of the Mt. Boso. These two faults are regarded as a single continuous fault.
The analysis of surface fabrics of quartz in fault in fault gauge has been carried out to determine relative fault activity events.
