Open-file Report - 537
Generalized geologic map of the Southern Sacramento Mountains, Otero and Chaves counties, New Mexico

Geoffrey Rawling



This geologic compilation map was produced as part of a regional hydrogeologic study of the Southern Sacramento Mountains. New geologic mapping was limited to the area east of the crest of the Sacramento Mountains, where the San Andres and Yeso Formations are exposed. Work was begun in late 2005 and completed in early 2009. Compilation of map data sets, cartography and editing were completed in early 2012 . The new mapping was compiled together with the mapping of Pray (1961) of the western escarpment of the range and some northern portions of the map of Black (1973), as shown on the data source index map.
