A 1:24,000-scale, color geologic map of the Minden 7.5-minute quadrangle in Douglas County, Nevada and Alpine County, California with descriptions of 37 geologic units and two cross sections. Accompanying text includes full unit descriptions and references. This quadrangle includes portions of the Genoa fault, which ruptured in a major earthquake several hundred years ago. The Minden quadrangle also includes extensive deposits of the Carson River; understanding the distribution of these deposits helps in assessing flood hazards for populated areas in the Carson Valley.

This map was prepared as part of the COGEOMAP and STATEMAP components of the National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program in cooperation with the U.S. Geological Survey.

Prize-winning map! Rachel Micander (NBMG Cartographer/GIS Specialist), Jennifer Vlcan (NBMG Cartographic/GIS Manager), and Matt Richardson (formerly with NBMG) took third place at the 25th Annual Nevada Geographic Information Society (NGIS) Conference in 2015 for their cartographic work on this map.
