This report describes selected aspects of the geology of the Pintura quadrangle. The quadrangle includes Permian through early Tertiary sedimentary rocks, middle Tertiary intrusive and volcanic rocks, and Quaternary volcanic rocks and surficial deposits. Mesozoic to early Cenozoic compressional deformation in the Utah-Idaho-Wyoming section of the Sevier orogenic belt, followed by Cenozoic magmatism and extensional faulting, created complex structural relations within the quadrangle. These structures are the main focus of this report.
