Cranes Nest River, a fork of Pound River, is of about the same size as McClure Creek, each having a basin about 20 miles long. The winding courses of the...

Page 93 - A feet thick. This includes 2 inches of clay and 30 to 36 inches of laminated coal in the middle. It has a sandstone roof and floor, and from the fact that the underlying sandstone, well exposed a few rods farther upstream, carries abundant quartz pebbles, it is concluded that this bed is on top of the Lee conglomerate. This same coal has been opened at a number of points on Indian Creek and shows everywhere a considerable thickness.
