This map illustrates major geologic features in Nevada, including numerous faults where earthquakes have occurred. Abundant volcanic and intrusive igneous rocks and some sedimentary rocks conain the mineral deposits that have made Nevaada the Nation's leading producer of gold and silver. Sediments eroded from the mountain ranges underlie the valleys and form alluvial aquifers. Carbonate rocks (limestone and dolomite) form important aquifers in the eastern part of Nevada.
