This is a finely detailed map of South Dakota produced at the turn of the 20th century for the Economic Geology of Fuels with a focus on coal. The map is presented in a surveyor's format showing abundant hydrologic detail throughout.
A key within the map explains the color coding as it refers to indian reservations, military lands, forest, and the locations of U.S. land offices, and the Surveyor General's Office. Symbols for roads and trails, sand hills, flats and marshes, dry lake beds, and creeks are also given. A separate key pertains to townships containing coal and townships that probably contain coal, which is the overriding theme of the map as it was produced with a focus on the economic geology of fuels.
Condition: This map is in B condition, issued folded now flat with bold, original color on bright, clean paper and ample margins on all sides for framing. Any fold separations have been reinforced on the verso using archival materials.
