"In Western and Northwestern Missouri there exist many natural gas fields of such limited size and of such great dispersion that it is not economical to utilize their products by the construction of pipe lines to consuming centers. Thus a large source of natural wealth is lying idle. This wealth could be utilized, however, if some manufacturing process requiring large amounts of fuel were located in the vicinity...The availability of fuel is the reason for interest in the area, though an investigation should be made to assure the quality and quantity of the fuel in any selected area. the adequacy of water supply in the area selected must be determined. The crux of the whole problem, however, is the location of suitable deposits of clay or shale within the area of one of these gas fields. This, then, is the purpose of the investigation"--Introduction, page 1-2.
