Rockhounding Permit Form

Federal and state laws prohibit collection of vertebrate fossils, certain trace fossils, such as dinosaur tracks, or any cultural/archaeological artifact. SITLA’s Rockhounding Permit does not allow collection of any of these items.

Consider visiting the The Rockhounder, a collection of rock and mineral collection sites compiled by the Utah Geological Survey.
