The Sevier thrust belt traverses the entire length of Utah and serves as the principal unifying element of the amazingly diverse geological regions of the state. To the east we find the Sevier foreland basin gloriously displayed in the western Colorado Plateau and western Green River Basin. To the west is the Basin and Range province, where the fragmented ranges give a glimpse of the structurally complex Sevier hinterland. Utahâ€™s long geologic history unfolds most logically through Sevier pre-thrusting, synorogenic, and post-thrusting events. For many decades, Sevier structural traps yielded a substantial portion of Utahâ€™s oil and gas wealth.
