Utah Geological Association

Edited by: M. L. Allison

Throughout its history, Utah was thoroughly prospected, mines were opened and closed, and periods of lively activity alternated with those of diminished activity according to the driving forces of supply and demand. In time, the great wealth and potential of Utah minerals were uncovered: metals, non-metallic, and industrial minerals, construction materisl, and energy fuels were all discovered in good supply. Utah?s extractive industry has been one of the most productive in the nation for more than 100 years and is expected to continue as such for many more. This guidebook provides information on the resources in Utah. The papers in this publication are listed below:
