Abstract

The surficial clayey till in the vicinity of Mountain Iron, Virginia, and Eveleth is of post-Cary age. In the southern part of the area studied, this till is overlain by deposits of glacial Lake Upham, and throughout the area it is underlain successively by stratified drift and bouldery till, both of Cary age, and by remnants of older tills.
