This report, which describes the San Juan Canyon, San Juan River and the tributary streams and the geography and to some extent the geology of the region, presents information obtained by me during the descent of the river with the Trimble party in 1921. The exploration of the canyon, which was financed jointly by the United States Geological Survey and the Southern California Edison Co., had as its primary object the mapping and study of the San Juan in connection with proposed power and storage projects along this and Colorado rivers.1 The exploration party was headed by K. W. Thimble, topographic engineer of the United States Geological Survey. Other members of the party were Robert N. Allen, Los Angeles, Calif.,...

Several thick deposits of gravel are widely distributed along the north edge of the Gulf Coastal Plain, of which a narrow belt is embraced in the southern parts of the Caddo Gap and De Queen quadrangles, Ark. This belt is shown on Plate I, and its location is shown on figure 5, a key map of this region. It comprises parts of Pike, Howard, and Sevier counties and a narrow strip of Hemp- stead County, in southwestern Arkansas, and a strip along the east edge of McCurtain County, in southeastern Oklahoma. The gravels are of Lower Cretaceous, Upper Cretaceous, and Quaternary age, and are composed mainly of pebbles of novaculite (a variety of chert) derived from the Arkansas novaculite exposed in the Ouachita Mountain...

Seven asphalt deposits, three of which are in Pike County and four in Sevier County, in southwestern Arkansas, were examined by the writers during the progress of the field work for the De Queen-Caddo Gap folio, which is now in preparation. These deposits are all found at or near the same horizon in the Trinity formation. Only one has so far been developed into a mine from which asphalt has been shipped in commercial quantity. This deposit, which has been described by Hayes, 1 is about 2£ miles south-southeast of Pike, in Pike County. Of the other six deposits only three have been prospected.
