Not illustrated. 1885 edition. Excerpt: ...Two short loops of this outcrop penetrate this township from Barree township at the head of Herod's run; and two more loops, one short and one very long one, follow the head waters of Laurel and Muddy runs between Greenlee and Shaver's mountains. The following report of the fossil ore outcrops, by Mr. C. E. Billin, relates to Barree as well as Jackson township, and is illustrated by Sheet No. 3. Ranges of fossil ore through Barree and Jackson townships, by C. E. Billin. The outcrop of the Clinton (No.V) fossil ore bed forms a sinuous line, 60 miles in length, extending across the head of Stone valley between the ends of the Seven Mountains and Warrior ridge. All the openings, with the exception of those on Brush ridge, were made about the year 1850 and have long since been deserted. At present it is impossible to get any very satisfactory measurements of the thickness of the ore beds in these old openings. Along the streams and hillsides the exposures are so wretchedly poor that not only the beds cannot be measured but it is extremely difficult to follow their outcrop. In fact, it will only be by very careful detailed work that the outcrop of some of the smaller flexures can be absolutely located. The only fossil ore beds which have been worked in Stone valley occur below the ore sandstone, corresponding to the "Danville ore beds" of the Lewistown valley. (See Report F.) The following section of the Lower Clinton in Brush ridge shows the character of the associated rocks and the position of the ore beds (See Plate 43, Fig. 1.) Brush ridge fossil ore section. Soil containing pieces of sandstone. Ore Sandstone; bottom layers filled with vertical seams; brown earthy material, frequently resembling lean limonite (brown hematite more
