The mineral compilation of the State emphasizes the Stringhamite Torbernite Wollastonite

mining: districts. Listings of rock-forming minerals are Szaibelyite T remolite Wurtzite
only given where they may be of local significance; but Tenorite Uranophane Zircon
it should be recalled that most of the common rock- Tetrahedrite Vanadinite Zoisite
forming minerals would be formed in each county.
Counties which have many mines have extensive mineral BOX ELDER COUNTY (67)
listings. whereas those with little or no metallic produc-
tion have limited minerals reported. Tooele County, for Alunite Diopside Muscovite
instance, with 188 minerals recognized, has the largest Anglesite Dufrenoysite Orpiment
mineral listing; whereas Carbon County has only 2. Aragonite Epidote Pearceite

Utah Minerals Listed by Chemical Class Burbankite Gearksutite


Calcite Halite
The minerals of the State have been assigned to 21 Calcedonite Kainite
chemical classes. Less than 40 percent of Utah's minerals Carbonate apatite Mimetite
fall into a single chemical class. such as a simple sul- Cerussite Neighborite
fide or oxide. Many fall into 2 chemical classes, such Cobaltocalcite Northupite
as azurite. which is listed as a carbonate, and also as a Collophane Phosgenite
hydroxyl-hydrous mineral. Several lie in 3 chemical Dawsonite Prosopite
classes and a few in 4 classes. One of the surprising Dolomite Pyromorphite
results in this tabulation is the abundance of hydroxyl- Eardleyite Scapolite
hydrous minerals. A total of 277 minerals, or 55 percent Eitelite Sodalite
of the minerals of Utah, contain water. An alphabetical Huntite Spangolite
listing of the chemical classes follows with the minerals Hydromagnesite Sylvite
that fall into each class. The total minerals found in each Hydrozincite Vanadinite
class is indicated by the number in parentheses. LeadhiIlite

Utah Minerals Listed Under Selected Metallic Elements Barytocalcite COBALT MINERALS (9)
Burbankite
Thirty metallic elements were selected by the author for Danburite Annabergite
consideration in this compilation. Most of these elements Garrelsite Bieberite
have formed ore deposits of actual or potential economic Hollandite Cobaltite
value in Utah; few metallic elements such as chromium, Leucospheni te Cobaltocalcite
cobalt, nickel, and tin occur in minerals that may have Meta-Uranocircite Cobaltomenite
only mineralogical significance. An alphabetical listing Psilomelane Cryptomelane
of the thirty selected metallic elements is given below. Erythrite

Grantsite Rabbittite Metallic Elements
Hewettite Rauvite
Hummerite Rutherfordine The 30 metallic elements listed with the minerals they
Melanovanadite Sabugalite form in Utah (section above) were programmed for a
Metahewet Saleeite compu ter analysis to determine their occurrence and
Metahewettite Samarskite distribution in the 29 counties of Utah. Specific mineral
Metarossite Schoepite occurrences can be found by referring to Chapter III.
Metatyuyamunite Schroeckingerite The counties, metallic elements, and minerals are alpha-
Montroseite Sklodowskite betically arranged. Figures in parentheses indicate the
