From alabaster to zinc, this is the earliest volume of Arizona minerals and rocks published by the Arizona State Bureau of Mines. Rough locations are provided for each entry. The first formal publication of an Arizona Geological Survey predecessor agency began in 1915 while Charles Willis was director.
On this, the 125th Anniversary of the Arizona Geological Survey (AZGS), we are celebrating the work of hundreds of geoscientists who struggled to understand and reconstruct Arizona’s geologic past. As part of that celebration, we are dedicating this issue of Arizona Geology to a retrospective display of articles published since the onset of our first formal publication serial, the Bulletin, in 1915. Because Arizona Geology is a vehicle for non-technical articles for a general audience, we largely focused on materials published over the past 42 years as part of our FieldNotes-Arizona Geology newsletter series.
