New Mexico Geological Society
Fall Field Conference Guidebook - 23
East-Central New Mexico


Vincent C. Kelley and Fred D. Trauger, eds., 1972, 236 pages.

The twenty-third field conference of the New Mexico Geological Society is a milestone in the fact that it will complete areally the coverage of the geology of the entire state begun in 1950. Previous conferences have covered areas both within and without the state and have repeated certain areas as their geological interest waxed again. Somehow the east-central portion of New Mexico was neglected as a conference site, despite its great diversity of geology, its unique beauty and its varied economic possibilities. The Society is pleased to help illuminate this largely unknown blank on our geological map with this conference. The first day road log is from Tucumcari to Mosquero and San Jon country. The second day road log is from Tucumcari to the Canadian escarpment and Santa Rosa country. The third day road log is from Santa Rosa to Clines Corner, Encino, Duran, and Vaughn country.
