Abstract

Despite the circumstance that in the Iowa part of the Great Plains, lying between the Mississippi River and the Rocky Mountains, the deep well-drillings usually sink only to that famed aquifer, or artesian reservoir, the Peter sandstone, the ancient crystalline basement beneath all of the tall column of sedimentaries is entered in a number of instances. Touching the deeply buried pre-Cambric rocks in the northeastern part of the State is not so surprising inasmuch as soon beyond our boundaries these crystallines rise to the surface.
