Until recently all interest in gypsum in Iowa, with the exception of brief activity at Centerville, was centered around the shallow deposits in the Fort Dodge area. During the past five years, however, interest in deeper gypsum has developed in the southern part of the State and both industry and civic groups have participated in exploratory drilling programs. With the exception of the Centerville area, this interest started with information obtained from the files of the Iowa Geological Survey.
