Magnetite

        This site is listed in "A Collector's Guide to Rock, Mineral, & Fossil Localities of Utah" by James R. Wilson. This is a very helpful book and Guide. It is available from the Utah Geological survey at (801)467-0401, or check the web.


        This site is west of Cedar City, Utah along the Desert Mounds road. You can see the tailings from a LONG way off. There are other minerals (crystals) on the tailings, but the magnetite can also be seen lying all over the place, particularly where water has washed it (hint - hint).


        This is a good site to take a BBQ  along and grill some steaks or pork chops after collecting for a while. There are a lot of washes and tailings to work over so plan on making a day of it.
