About This Publication
This map, one of several 1: 24,000-scale maps of the region south-southwest of San Antonio, Texas, focuses on sand resources in the Carrizo-Wilcox, Queen City, and Sparta formations of south-central Texas. Maps of this region provide a basic geologic framework to aid in managing water and earth resources; planning land use; identifying aquifer recharge areas; and identifying earth resources such as dimension stone, aggregate, construction sand and specialty sand, and gravel. The map illustrates the geology of Quaternary and Tertiary deposits that overlie Cretaceous strata just south of San Antonio. The Eocene-age Carrizo Sand, Queen City Sand, and Sparta Sand provide important mineral resources to industry in the region, and these geologic maps will assist in recognizing additional economic sand resources and aquifer recharge zone(s) that are important for regional water resource management.
