MP-09-3GEOLOGIC MAP OF THE KELTON PASS QUADRANGLE, BOX ELDER COUNTY, UTAH, AND CASSIA COUNTY, IDAHO
Michael L. Wells

The Kelton Pass quadrangle, located at the east end of the Raft River Mountains, is a classic metamorphic core complex, in part exemplified by the Raft River detachment fault. The area contains Archean metamorphic, Proterozoic metasedimentary, and Paleozoic carbonate and clastic rocks that were intensely deformed and thinned by alternating episodes of contraction and extension during the late Mesozoic to Cenozoic.  Miocene to Quaternary sediments fill structural basins, and late Pleistocene Lake Bonneville deposits blanket low areas.

MP-08-1PROVISIONAL GEOLOGIC MAP OF THE CHAMPLIN PEAK QUADRANGLE, JUAB AND MILLARD COUNTIES, UTAH
Janice M. Hayden, Timothy F. Lawton, and Donald L. Clark

The Champlin Peak quardrangle is located in central Utah within the eastern Basin and Range Province, and includes the northern Canyon Mountains, southeastern Gilson Mountains, and Sevier and Leamington Canyons. The map area displays structures of the Sevier fold-thrust belt, including the Canyon Range syncline, Leamington Canyon fault, Tintic Valley thrust fault, and Leamington antiform. Cretaceous conglomerate, derived from thrust sheets durin Sevier deformation, unconformably overlies Cambrian strata of the Canyon Range thrust plate. Surficial deposits include alluvial fans, fluvial sediments of the Sevier River, and deltaic sediments of Lake Bonneville. Limestone, shale, and quartzite are quarried for use in a local cement plant.

This CD contains three plates: the geologic map at 1:24,000 scale and two explanation plates, all in PDF format. Adobe Acrobat Reader is required for viewing the plates and can be downloaded at www.adobe.com.
