As a consequence of the detailed investigation of the alunite and other mineral deposits of the Marysvale Region in southwest‐central Utah, opportunity was afforded to map and study the succession of volcanic rocks that underlie most of this area. The Marysvale Region is part of a large area of volcanic rocks, which occupies much of the High Plateaus of Utah (Fig. 1). It is believed that the Marysvale Region covers sufficient area to furnish an adequate sample of this volcanic area, and, though horizontal variations are known to occur, the study may serve as a guide as to what may be expected in other parts of the area. The chemical analyses are the most completely representative of any ever taken in this part of Utah, and they furnish a basis of comparison within the High Plateaus and with other areas in Utah.
