Abstract

Recent detailed coal studies in the area between Havelock and Fryburg, N. Dak. (Hinds, 1983; 1985), have resulted in some revised coal-bed correlations that are, in places, in disagreement with previous work (Banet, 1980; Hares, 1928; Lewis, 1979; Menge, 1977; Owen, 1979; Rehbein, 1977; Royse, 1967). The strati graphically most important of these have been specifically discussed (Hinds, 1983; 1985), but many others, of more or less local significance, were not specifically mentioned.

This report is an extension of the author's stratigraphic and coal -bed correlations from the vicinity of the Painted Canyon Overlook, at the south edge of Theodore Roosevelt National Memorial Park, eastward to the vicinity of Davis Buttes, near Dickinson, N. Dak.
