The lowest bed is a very hard sandstone weathering to a reddish colour, and is fairly well bedded. The sandstone next above is grey in colour on a freshly fractured surface, is very massive, thick, hard, and even quartzitic. There is a conglomerate bed about one foot thick on top of each of these two lower sandstones. The upper...

Page 51 - Immediately on top of the limestones are some very hard, fine-grained, almost white quartzites, from 200 to 300 feet thick, and varying in colour from pure white to a light grey. The shales and sandstones which overlie these are much thicker than to the east around the Moose mountains, although they are otherwise very similar. The conglomerate which overlies the coal measures to the east was not...

Page 52 - The conglomerate which overlies the coal measures to the east was not seenhere in place, but considerable of the float was found on the hillsides, so that it very probably outcrops on some of the higher points or ridges ; but as our work was done late in the autumn, with considerable snow on the ground, we did not find it. The formation here consists chiefly of sandstones, characteristically brown in appearance. In fact from the river up to the tops of the high rugged Cretaceous ridge here, the whole...
Page 30 - Coulee, as described on page -We and as figured" in an earlier report, resemble the Eagle sandstone much more closely than any part of the Judith River or any other horizon in the general region. This same sandstone horizon was recognized in Rocky Spring Ridge and on the west flank of West Butte (Sweetgrass Hills) resting on dark shales which at the last-named locality have an estimated thickness of 800 feet.
Page 8 - Kootanie coals are found as anthracitic coals, semi-anthracites, or bituminous coals, according to the amount of local pressure. At one place on the south branch of Sheep river one of these seams, in a tight fold, has been altered to an impure graphite. The Edmonton coals are all lignites or lignitic coals. A few samples collected give evidence by analyses of being the latter. COALS.
