The Geology Department at MNA has a long tradition of field-based research on the extraordinary geological history of the Colorado Plateau and surrounding areas.

Nearby exposures range from two billion year old Precambrian beds in the Grand Canyon, just 70 miles north of campus, to Quaternary (Ice Age) deposits scattered throughout the American West that [ ]. Arizona sits astride two major geologic provinces, the Colorado Plateau to the north and the Basin and Range to the south and west.

The Plateau Province includes the northern third of the state bounded on the south by the Mogollon Rim and on the west by the Grand Wash Cliffs (land form is characterized by sedimentary rocks, with canyons, plateaus, and scarps.) in the western.

Arizona Capitol Times is reporting that Asarco and the State of Arizona have reached agreement for a $20 million clean-up of the Sacaton open pit copper mine near Casa Grande, and for a $3 million clean up of the Salero and Trench mines near Patagonia.

The deal is subject to approval of the judge handling the Asarco bankruptcy. Arizona's mineral production surged %, reaching an all-time high of $ billion, lead by copper, molybdenum concentrates, sand and gravel, silver, and cement. Arizona remained in the #2 position behind Nevada, at $ billion, due largely to its gold production.

Copper accounted for 27% of the nation's total mineral wealth, with moly at. sil Trackway Study Localities (Arizona), GSA Sup­ plementaryDatais available on request from DocumentsSecretary, GSA, Boulder, Colorado at the Webb Schools in Claremont, California, and Museum of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff.
