Seite 20 - Coal Measure or Pennsylvania age. The Permian outcrops are probably restricted to the valley of Big Blue River from Beatrice southward. The rocks are mainly magnesian limestones of light color, with interbedded shales. They are extensively exposed south of Beatrice, at Rockford, Bluesprings, Wymore, and Holmesville. The other Carboniferous members appear to comprise the Cottonwood and Wabaunsee formations of the Kansas geologists. They consist of limestones, shales, and sandstones, which contain...

Seite 19 - All of Nebraska west of the ninety-eighth meridian is underlain by the Pierre clay. Its surface outcrops are in the lower portion of the Niobrara Valley, the Republican Valley, and the extreme northwest corner of the State, but it is probable that careful search will reveal outcrops in the valley of the Platte River in the vicinity of the ninetysixth meridian. The formation is a thick mass of dark-gray or bluish clay or soft shale. Its thickness is probably at least 2,000 feet in the west-central...
