In some cases, they show a crenulated structure or weak to intense deformation superimposed to the main foliation of the rock, developing a mylonitic structure characterized by the presence of thin strips of elongated quartz and actinolite, intercalated with thick bands of quartz and plagioclase.
Deformation structures in the mylonitic rocks from the staurolite zone is very interesting as it reveals that these rocks have undergone two major phases of ductile deformation showing opposite sense of shear.
This study suggests that the lake's origins are natural, generated by strong tectonic activity that is characteristic of the Cuicateco lands and the mylonitic complex of Guelatao de Juarez, defined by lateral and frontal faults from the Eocene-Miocene era (Perez-Gutierrez et al.
The sole rocks consist of mylonitic peridotite and sub-ophiolitic metamorphic rock series grading from (garnet-bearing) amphibolite facies to greenschist facies.
Mylonitic fabrics developed within conjugate wrench ductile shear and fault systems in the Southem Bohemian Massif display both dextral (NW-SE-trending systems) and sinistral (NE-SW-trending systems) shear senses.

The calibre of grades returned in TGA089 may be an indication that the drilling may have encountered another high grade sub-body within the broader mylonitic mineralisation, similar to Terrace Creek.
