The Lynndyl 30-by 60-minute 1:100,000-scale quadrangle is located in west-central Utah at the eastern edge of the Great Basin. The Sevier River, which drains part of the western Colorado Plateaus province, flows through the southeast corner of the quadrangle and terminates at Sevier Lake. The rocks and sediments exposed in the quadrangle represent a fairly complete sequence ranging in age from Middle Proterozoic to Holocene excluding most of the Mesozoic, which is present to the east in the Colorado Plateaus. The presence of major ore deposits in the East Tintic Mountains stimulated geologic interest in this region, and early stratigraphic work was concentrated around the Tintic ore deposits. Geologic data for the bedrock areas of the Lynndyl 30-by 60-minute quadrangle were compiled from a variety of published and unpublished sources. This map contains descriptions of geologic units and correlation of map units.
The map contained on this compact disc is a digital version of the 1:100,000-scale geologic map of the Lynndyl 30' x 60' quadrangle, west-central Utah. This digital map is presented in different formats: Portable Document Format (pdf) and ArcMap project. The spatial data files are provided as ArcInfo coverages and shapefiles.
