We did discuss trying to put faults etc into our lox model a while back, 
but found more useful things to do,

It would be a nice feature, but no idea how it could be done.

I have included Anddy Farrant in this mail, as our trained (but not very 
well) Geologist, he should be able to help in this discussion, but has 
little knowledge of Therion
