REPORT.
The main work of the Geological Survey during the year 1887 has been given to the completion of the Topographical Survey and maps of the State. The office in New Brunswick has been open and the large correspondence connected with various departments of the work has been kept up. The distribution of the publications of the Survey, which has gradually grown to be an important part of its duties, has received full attention. There has also been some field work done in the exploration and study of the Archaean rocks in Sussex county. This has been in continuation of plans given in former reports. Some examinations have also been made of the glacial and terrace deposits in the valley of the Delaware above the Water Gap. There has also been a careful and detailed survey made of the zinc mines at Franklin Furnace, for the purpose of making a model of this extraordinary vein of ore. The extensive workings of the mines have so exposed the rocky strata that it has become the best-known illustration of some of the structural features of the Highland range of mountains. Attention has also been given to the important questions of water-supply and of drainage.
The near completion of the work renders it unadvisable to go into detail as fully as has been the case in former annual reports. The present is only a business statement of the affairs of the Survey, and it is soon to be followed by the first part of the final report. This will be ready for the printer the latter part of the winter. It will be upon the Physical Geography of New Jersey, and will embody in the text the results of the Geodetic, Topographic and Magnetic Surveys, and be a proper accompaniment to the elaborate maps which are now done and nearly all ready for publication.
It is gratifying to be able to state that the work and publications of the Survey are satisfactorily meeting the wants of our citizens. Constant reference is being made to the office for the reliable information which is contained in the surveys and records, and important enterprises are being undertaken from the information which has been thus provided by the State.
The matters noticed in the report are arranged under the following heads :
I. GEODETIC SURVEY.
II. TOPOGRAPHIC SURVEY.
III. GEOLOGIC SURVEYS.
IV. WATER-SUPPLY.
V. DRAINAGE.
VI. MISCELLANEOUS SUBJECTS NOTICED.
VII. PUBLICATIONS.
VIII. EXPENSES.
IX. ASSISTANTS.
X. STATISTICS OF IRON AND ZINC ORES.
