About time too.
60 million years is a mite old for 14C dating.
Would be a handy technique in younger faults and should give an age date of post age of C material with a time limit of ~60,000 years or so.
Would only be useful in areas where the fault moved more than 3m as it would at that point be able to generate enough frictional heat to get decent results in the region close enough to the surface to produce dateable 14C in organics.
Have a nice day: Ag
