The Gold Hill area of the northern Deep Creek Range of western Utah has undergone a diverse and complicated history of deposition, igneous activity, deformation, and mineralization. The quadrangle includes sedimentary rocks typical of the Paleozoic Cordilleran miogeocline succeeded by Quaternary lacustrine and alluvial strata. Mesozoic folding, thrust faulting, low-and high-angle faulting, igneous intrusion, metamorphism, and mineralization affected the Paleozoic strata. Cenozoic lacustrine, alluvial, and colluvial deposits unconformably overlie Paleozoic strata at various locations.
