FOREWORD

66

This booklet has been compiled to meet a demand for specific information regarding the mineral, soil, and water power resources of Arkansas and is the fourth in a series of related publications issued by the State Bureau of Mines, Manufactures and Agriculture. The first booklet was published in 1920 by Commissioner Jim G. Ferguson and was entitled “Outlines of Arkansas Geology;" the second, “Minerals in Arkansas," was also issued by Commissioner Ferguson and was published in 1922. The third, "Answers to Questions About Arkansas' Mineral Resources,” was published in 1924 by Commissioner Ferguson and was written by the State Geologist. In the present volume, prepared by the State Geologist and published by. Commissioner W. N. Wilkes, an attempt has been made to include maps which are out of print or inaccessible to the public, and also to include statistical information and references which may prove useful. In a work of this nature, which is largely statistical, it is necessary to make liberal use of all available information, including data from the United States Geological Survey, the State Survey, scientific and other publications, and numerous unpublished reports. The sources of the statistical tables appearing are acknowledged in the text.

I wish to acknowledge the cordial assistance of Commissioner Wilkes and also that of E. T. Thomas, Lloyd G. Henbest and J. E. Coates, who assisted in the preparation of portions of the text.

The maps and charts were drawn by Miss Pearle Lowe.
