dc.description.abstract We present the mineralogy of four rocks determined by the CheMin X‐ray diffraction instrument onboard the rover. The results exhibit evidence of multiple diagenetic events, including aqueous alteration by warm groundwaters and a fluctuation of lake levels and evaporative events. en
