Field Review of New Geologic Mapping

Rush Valley 30′ x 60′ Quadrangle, Tooele, Utah, and Salt Lake Counties, Utah

led by Donald L. Clark and Stefan M. Kirby
Tuesday-Wednesday, October 18-19, 2011

Meet at Salt Lake City Department of Natural Resources building (1594 W. North Temple, south side of building); gather at 7:30 am, and depart at 7:45 am sharp from DNR on both days.

You are invited to attend a field review highlighting new geologic mapping of the area extending from near Dugway (west) to Cedar Fort (east), and Stockton (north) to Vernon (south). The purpose of the mapping is to accurately describe the stratigraphy, geologic structure, geologic resources, and geologic hazards of the area. These maps are used for geologic hazard evaluation, land management planning, resource assessment and development, and education, as well as by the weekend hobbyist. The trip will be geared to cover a broad audience including geologists, government officials, and the general public.
