Abstract

The Bering River coal field lies a few miles inland from the north shore of Controller Bay, an indentation of the Pacific coast about 1,200 miles from Seattle. In this field are the Cunningham claims which were given much publicity in connection with the Pinchot-Ballinger controversy. Much of the coal area is within the drainage basin of the Bering River. To the north of the field is the Martin River glacier, with the lofty, snowcapped Chugach range of mountains beyond; to the east of the field, and extending for many miles, is the Bering Pielmont glacier.
