Abstract

An extensive road surfacing program in all the counties of northern Iowa for the past ten years or more has resulted in a severe drain on the gravel supplies of that territory, and has, in many cases, necessitated the search for new deposits. Such is the case in Hancock County. The kame and esker deposits, which were the first to be opened and worked, are now almost entirely exhausted, and gravels of the valley trains, though not so easily found, and though, in many cases, lying below the ground water level, hold the most promise for future needs. The valley described in this paper is one which was traced out in the course of a search for new deposits of this type in the vicinity of Britt and Kanawha.
