The Short Canyon quadrangle in Emery County, central Utah, has some world-class examples of Utah's spectacular geology. Driving through the quadrangle on the Moore Road takes you from the Jurassic Carmel Formation through about 100 million years or 3700 feet (1200 m) of rock into the Cretaceous Mancos Shale. Many species of dinosaur have been discovered in the Cretaceous Cedar Mountain Formation, which is beautifully exposed here. The Short Canyon Member of the Cedar Mountain Formation was mapped and newly described in the quadrangle. Mineral resources from the area include gypsum, coal, and chalcedony.
