A Gravity and Magnetic Survey of the Ute Mountain Ute Indian Reservation, Colorado and New Mexico

Michael W. Webring, Gerda A. Abrams


Gravity and magnetic data provide an excellent regional overview of the geologic framework of sedimentary basins. Major structural features, primarily in the basement, can be mapped and used to compliment other exploration techniques, notably seismic reflection data. Previous studies have shown that the basement structure is often related to the growth of carbonate mud mounds in the Pennsylvanian Paradox Formation, one of the primary oil and gas exploration targets in and around the Ute Mountain Ute Reservation. This report presents a summary interpretation of gravity and aeromagnetic maps compiled for the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe as part of a mineral appraisal of their reservation. New potential field data consist of 308 gravity stations and a low level aeromagnetic survey.
