Signs Of Oil Near Havre De Grace
The discovery of crude oil on the
surface of the Susquehanna River and
tributaries rear Havre de ('.nice, has
attracted the attention of New York
capitalists to such an extent that they
have bought or leased large tracts
near that city on which they will bore
for oil. Promoters of the enterprise
are further encouraged by geological
evidence that the rocks which underly
Havre de Hracc and vicinity are ex
tensions of the strata in Lancaster
county. Pa., from which there has
been a small flow of oil. Operations
are being carried on to reach the
large deposits believed to exist under
the surface.
