Abstract

The information set forth in this chapter was obtained in field work during the seasons of 1913 and 1915. During 1913 the writer was engaged in the detailed mapping of the phosphate beds of the Ember formation on the northeast slope of the Wind River Mountains and in the Owl Creek Mountains as far east as Bighorn River canyon. In 1915 the mapping was continued eastward as far as Holt, from which a reconnaissance examination was made east and north along both flanks of the Bighorn Range as far as the latitude of Tensleep. A visit was also made to the west end of the Rattlesnake Mountains and neighboring points in Natrona County, to the Conant Creek anticline, in the eastern part of Fremont County, and to the Sheep Mountain anticline, in the Bighorn Basin.
