Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - April 30, 1965, Mason City, Iowa Mineral deposits in area Believed to be mineable By HARRISON WEBER Iowa Daily Press Writtr DES MOINES acromagnetic survey shows there may be mineable miner al deposits in the northwest corner oC the state In other words said State Geologist Dr H Garland Her shey there is the potential of finding minerals that can be mined at a profit The latest aerial survey third in a scries pinpoints about a doxcn anomalies areas where the magnetic attraction is very high scattered throughout the 12000 mile area covered in the survey This area is roughly triangu lar in shape and covers every thing northwest of a line from Harrison to Worth counties At the moment the main value of this survey is that it gives mining and oil companies leads for further prospecting in Iowa said Dr Hcrshey who also is Director of the Iowa Geological Survey We of course are very en couraged by this latest survey The reason we had not found out about these potential mineral deposits before is that they are buried by other rock to depths up to 3000 feel We dont have many wells clown into these rocks so that we can get samples he explained The survey shows one area in Clay and Dickinson counties in which the people who did the flying recommended further study From the basis of this survey we also think there are other areas that warrant furth er study and perhaps drilling for magnetic iron ore Hcrshey stated The official of Geological Sur vey said that mining at 3000 feet presents a problem at this time But over large areas in northwest Iowa it appears that the possible mineral bearing rocks are at much shallower depths Hcrshey said He cited Spencer as being one place where the possible miner al deposits appear to be at 1200 foci Besides the high density ings in l he Spencer vicinity Hcrshey also singled out an area nonr the Sioux and Lyon coun ly line Altogether he said there are approximately a dozen areas which appear to be possi ble sites of mineral deposits llershcy also noted that two mining companies presently are making exploration drills in northwest Iowa Dr Ilcrshcy said the latest survey also shows some fault ing We think that if the fault ing occurred after the rocks sandstone shale and limestone were deposited this may be a good locality along the fault lines for oil pros pects he added T li i s latest survey was fi nanced by an appropriation of by the 1963 legislature The Geological Survey contract ed with private firms to make the aeromagnctic survey in which a magnetometer is used to spot anomalies This survey supplements sim ilar studies conducted in north central and southwestern Iowa Standards bill faces new tests DES MOINES school standards bill faced more tests in the Iowa Senate Friday after several attempts to seriously weaken it were beaten down Thursday The measure would establish state regulation of private ac well as public schools through the 12lh grade ft would replace a public school standards law thrown out last year by the Iowa Supreme Court The Senate voted 4115 Thurs clay against an amendment tha would hve prevented giving pri valeschool students authority to enrol in public schools for special courses not available in their private school It then refused by a 3016 vol to remove the provisions for rcg ulalion of parochial and othc private schools It voted down 40M an at tempt to limit standards re to those spelled out in the law A voice vote turned down attempt to remove a provision extending state regulation to nursery schools an kindergar tens As introduced by the Senate Education Committee the bill would list certain courses to be taught in the schools It would empower the State Department of Public Instruc tion to make other rules on such factors as
