About This Publication (from the front matter)
The Bureau of Economic Geology is one of the organized research bureaus of The University of Texas. Established in 1909, it has for 53 years carried out the function of a State Geological Survey; its Director fills the position of State geologist. The Bureau is engaged in a four-point program of research and public service in earth science and Texas mineral resources as follows: (1) basic geological research, (2) investigation of mineral deposits, (3) systematic geologic mapping, and (4) public service mineral information, identification and testing, and compilation of mineral statistics. As a part of its effort, the Bureau publishes major reports in The University of Texas publication series; it also has its own series of Reports of Investigation, Geologic Quadrangle Maps, Guidebooks, and Mineral Resource Circulars. The Guidebooks include non-technical publications of general interest.

The basic geologic data developed by the Bureau of Economic Geology in the form of scientific reports and geologic maps are used by many State and Federal organizations in carrying out investigations in the public service. These include the Texas Water Commission, Railroad Commission of Texas, Parks and Wildlife Department, Texas Highway Department, Texas Industrial Commission, and numerous other State boards, conservation organizations, water districts, and Chambers of Commerce. The Bureau also cooperates formally and informally with Federal agencies, such as the Geological Survey, Bureau of Mines, Bureau of Reclamation, Corps of Engineers, and National Park Service. The mineral and geological information service offered by the Bureau of Economic Geology is used by public and private groups, corporations, and citizens through correspondence and conference.

The Bureau has offices on the Little Campus as well as a Mineral Studies Laboratory and Well Sample and Core Library at the Balcones Research Center.
