The Mineral Mountains are a 28-mile (45 km) long mountain range located in east Beaver County, Utah. The range is in a transition position. The Escalante Desert is to its southwest, the Black Rock Desert volcanic field is north, and north and northwest adjacent to the volcanic field is the Sevier Desert. The Pavant-Tushar Mountains massif complex lies east.
The west side of the range borders the small Milford Valley, a narrowing between the Star Range west, and the Minerals east; the Beaver River (Utah), turns due-north through Milford, Utah and enters the regions at the northeast of the Esclante Desert, and the southwest of the Black Rock Desert volcanic field. (Black Rock, Utah lies 23-mi north.)
Milford Flat at the Mineral Mountains was the origin of the Milford Flat Fire which burned eastwards beyond Interstate 15 and Cove Fort into the Tushar-Pavant Mountains.
