"The object of this report has been three-fold. First, it has been deemed necessary to discuss the general geology of the area about Eminence, showing the distribution and character of the different formations. The distribution is shown on a topographic map of the Eminence Quadrangle...In the second place, it is intended to give a detailed account of the history, development, and extent of mining operations in Shannon county, with the amounts of production and the occurrence of the ore. The third object of this report is to develop a probable theory for the genesis of the ore, and to discuss the most favorable horizon for further prospecting"--Introduction, page 4-5.
