Computer analysis of fault trends shown on the 1:250,000 geologic maps of western Utah show that trend directions most closely associated with mineralization are N. 60 degrees -65 degrees E., N. 80 degrees -85 degrees E., N. 85 degrees -90 degrees W., and N. 70 degrees -75 degrees E. Faults with northerly, or Great Basin trend, are the most common type, but apparently least favorable for mineralization. 'Results are favorable to continued exploration in covered areas along known mineral belts.'
