Dominated by agriculture and the mining industry until the mid-twentieth century, Utah’s economy has since diversified considerably.

The state hides very important mineral resources: copper, iron, gold, money, coal, oil, lead, uranium and salt. The wooded mountains are the object of forestry, and the rest of the soil is used for grazing: 75% of the agricultural income comes from breeding (cattle, sheep, poultry). Irrigated crops (cereals, fodder, fruits and vegetables) cover only a small proportion of arable land.

Industries

Most industries (metallurgy, agri-food, wood industries, petroleum industries, chemicals, mechanical engineering) derive from local materials first. Tourism is now one of the key sectors of the state’s economy. In fact, the region has several well-known natural and historical sites: the Zion National Park and the Bryce Garganta National Park, the Newspaper Rock State Park, which protects ancient Indian pictograms, and the Hovenweep Citizen Monument, site of ancient Indian troglodyte dwellings.
