This report describes the geologic framework of a >65,000 km2 area that straddles the Nevada-Utah border. The studied region includes most of White Pine and Lincoln counties and adjacent counties in eastern Nevada, as well as parts of Tooele, Juab, Millard, Beaver, and Iron counties in western Utah. This study represents more than a 20-year effort by the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) to understand the groundwater resources of this part of the Great Basin. This first step, which includes a compilation of all the information on the geologic and geophysical setting, was necessary for hydrological and biological investigations. To understand the geologic framework, we compiled all known geologic mapping at a scale of 1:250,000, and constructed 25 geologic cross sections at the same scale. We also present new geophysical data, consisting of gravity surveys and audiomagnetotelluric (AMT) profiles, plus assembly of available aeromagnetic data, contracted from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), as well as additional AMT profiles by the SNWA. This report focuses on two large regional groundwater flow systems: the White River and Great Salt Lake Desert systems. Although the map boundaries presented here bound these aforementioned flow systems, the maps, cross sections, and text are intended to serve as a modern multidisciplinary regional geological and geophysical review, comparable to many old county reports in Nevada and Utah.

This report was prepared with support from the Southern Nevada Water Authority.

About the GIS files
The GIS files for this map were made available by the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology in cooperation with the Southern Nevada Water Authority.

The folders contain these files:
r056z
|\data
| |\geodatabase (contains the ESRI geodatabase files for the map)
|
| |\Layerfiles (ESRI ArcGIS layer files of each layer in the table of contents of the ArcMap MXD file)
|
| |\shapefiles (ESRI shape files for each layer in the ArcMap table of contents of the ArcMap MXD file)
|
|\docs
| |\metadata (contains the metadata as a text file (.txt) for:
| | Geodatabase
| | FeatureDataSet
| | Each FeatureClass in the Geology FeatureDataSet
|
|\maps (contains the final ESRI ArcGIS 10.3.1 ArcMap MXD file)
|\pdfs (contains the final PDF files of the map plates, text, original map, mxd, ...)

The symbol and image files listed above contain graphic symbol information about associated line, point, and polygon features found on the published map but that may not have been fully identified in the present format of the feature line, point, or polygon attribute file. The layer files are provided here for use with the geologic map digital conversion as an aid to a graphic presentation of the full data set. The files can be utilized in ESRI ArcGIS 10.3.1.
