Abstract

This paper describes structure of the Des Moines series in the shale pit of the Adel Clay Products Company at Redfield, Dallas County as at present (1951) exposed. An anticline of major dimensions is known to be present in the vicinity of Redfield. The first description was by Leonard (1898, p. 90-91). Dille (1926, p. 194-195) described the structure as it was known at the time, after exploratory wells had been drilled for oil and gas. Norton (1912, p. 811-922) made no mention of it when writing on the underground water of the central district. Other exploratory wells have been drilled in the vicinity of Redfield within the past 25 years. Undoubtedly the results of this drilling have thrown further light on the general structure of the area.
