This mineral report was prepared to fulfill the requirements of PL 94-579 Sec. 204 (c)(2) for the emergency withdrawal of a portion of the Great Salt Lake Desert. This report covers the actual proposed withdrawal area and the surrounding from township 2S to 8N and from range 8W to 18W. A legal description of the actual area subject to inundation is contained in a separate land report. Geologic data was compiled from published and unpublished Utah Geological and Mineral Survey material and other outside sources. Hellmut H. Doelling's 1980 publication, Geology and mineral resources of Box Elder County, Utah and Lehi Hintze's 1973 book Geologic history of Utah are probably the best general references for this area. No field work was deemed necessary in light of the availability of adequate geological information.
