The Red Knolls are low hills that rise about 400 feet above the floor of the Sevier Desert some 25 miles west of Delta, Utah. The Sevier Desert is a broad Basin and Range valley surfaced with Quaternary deposits of alluvial, lacustrine, and eolian origin that conceal relationships of Tertiary and Paleozoic rocks beneath.
No previous geologic map of this quadrangle has been published except for reconnaissance mapping done in connection with regional map compilation. Field work was facilitated by the availability of excellent 1:25,000 color aerial photographs of the CSR series taken for the Department of Defense mobile missile project.
