Tag Archive for: The Vernon NE Quadrangle

By: Stefan M. Kirby

This map represents the geology of the Vernon NE quadrangle at 1:24,000 scale. The Vernon NE quadrangle covers a part of the floor of Rush Valley northeast of the Vernon Hills in southeastern Tooele County. Unconsolidated surficial deposits of Holocene to lower Pleistocene? age cover nearly the entire quadrangle. These deposits include various alluvial fan and channel sediments, and lacustrine units deposited during both the transgression and regression of Lake Bonneville. The Salt Lake Formation is exposed in the western half of the quadrangle as a series of topographically low outcrops partially overlain and surrounded by unconsolidated deposits. The exposed thickness of the Salt Lake Formation is up to 2850 feet (870m).
