This brochure is a basic introduction to Box Elder County's geologic resources and the role they play in our economy and everyday lives. To recognize their existence and realize their importance, it is essential to understand the dynamic forces that form geologic resources and the factors that influence development and uses of these assets.
The county's resources are many, therefore, detailed treatment of each cannot be provided here. Discussion of few selected commodities highlights the origin, mining history, extraction, and common uses of the non-metallic, metallic, and energy resources found in the county. The remaining resources and pertinent data are listed in tables 1, 2, and 3.
