The discovery of a new oil or gas field or mineral deposits is a euphoric experience. Yet nothing is quite so sobering as the realization of the time, effort, and money which justifies the discovery. The contents of this guidebook are testimony to the efforts which are critical to recognizing and interpreting the natural resource potential of a region. This volume concentrates on the geology of the Overthrust Belt of Utah in general, and more specifically on the geologic relationships of central Utah.
