A closeup of the Genoa Fault shows Quaternary alluvium on the right downfaulted against Sierran granite on the left. The fault motion of the footwall block (left) moving up relative to the headwall block (right) makes this a normal fault. Since unconsolidated Quaternary sediments are involved in the faulting, the fault is Quaternary in age.
