From the Author’s Notes:
Geologic mapping of the 7.5-minute Rules Hill quadrangle was undertaken by the CGS as part of the National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Act-STATEMAP component program. The Rules Hill quadrangle was selected as the first quadrangle to be mapped in the Durango area because of the rapid population growth, geologic hazards such as methane seepage and natural gas resources found within it.
