The Linton quadrangle is the second of a series of quadrangles being mapped by the Division of Geology, Indiana Department of Conservation in cooperation with the United States Geological Survey, as part of a program of study and reappraisal of Indiana coal resources. The field work was done by the writer, assisted by Harold Hutchison, during the summer of 1948; final corrections to the map were made in the field January 1950.
The purpose of the mapping is to show in detail areal geology, the stratigraphy of the Pennsylvanian rocks, the extent and structure of the principal coal beds, the locations of mined-out areas and the coal reserves.
