OF-15-07 Geologic Map of the Paonia Quadrangle, Delta County, Colorado

The Colorado School of Mines is pleased to present the Colorado Geological Survey’s Geologic Map of the Paonia Quadrangle, Delta County, Colorado. Its purpose is to describe the geologic setting of this 7.5 minute quadrangle. Field work for the project was conducted in 2013. This mapping project was funded jointly by the U.S. Geological Survey through Agreement No. G13AC00213 of the STATEMAP component of the National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program, which is authorized by the National Geologic Mapping Act of 1997, and also by the Colorado Geological Survey using the Colorado Department of Natural Resources Severance Tax Operational Funds. The CGS matching funds come from the severance paid on the production of natual gas, oil, coal, and metals. Geologic maps produced through the STATEMAP program are intended as multi-purpose maps useful for land-use planning, geotechnical engineering, geologic-hazard assessment, mineral-resource development, and ground-water exploration.
