From the Introduction
Johnson County is rich in natural resources, many of which are as yet undeveloped. The purpose of this bulletin is to furnish to residents of the county and to others interested a constructive guide to the geology of the county, its influence on general development, and its possibilities
for exploitation. As the Comanchean rocks of Johnson County illustrate many of the problems encountered in the other north Texas counties underlain by these rocks, this paper will furnish a brief summary of the economic geology of North Texas Comanchean-Cretaceous areas. A second no less important object is to describe certain important transition phases in these rocks, notably the transition of the Goodland into the Edwards and Comanche Peak and the transition of certain Washita formations into the Georgetown formation.
