Wyoming State Geological Survey (WSGS)


Vital to our mission is public awareness and understanding of Wyoming’s geologic, mineral, and energy resources. Our website is an education resource for you to discover Wyoming’s geologic past, present, and future. It includes a wide array of downloadable data sets and more than 350 free publications, as well as interactive maps and information on our current research projects for the state. We leverage our research and applied knowledge to facilitate tomorrow’s mineral and energy resource characterization and responsible development. Wyoming and the Rocky Mountain West have a richness in natural resources that is of great importance to the United States and the world. With these come a complexity of economic and environmental challenges, and the need for sound scientific information to inform policy and decision-making. We strive to provide geology-related information that is relevant and important.
