The Eastern Basin and Range is truly a magnificent land in which to work, visit, and explore. Its scenic vistas, sculpted mountain ranges, and expansive valleys have attracted professional geologists, prospectors, biologists, engineers, tourists, educators, adventurers, and others for decades. Exploitation of the mineral wealth of the area began more than 150 years ago and continues to this day. The lands are incredibly rich in mineral resources and ongoing exploration continues to expand our knowledge of the economic geology of the area. In recent years the value of the groundwater resources of Western Utah has become of extreme interest. This guidebook contains papers addressing regional geology, energy and mineral resources, and groundwater resources. The following are the articles available in this publication:
