The glacial features of the Pingree SW quadrangle were mapped in detail and studied carefully to relate their economic possibilities with the development of the natural resources of the State of North Dakota. The glacial geology consists of a pronounced terminal moraine flanking the west of the quadrangle which was deposited by the latest Wisconsin ice sheet. Ground moraine covers three-fourths of the quadrangle and it's gentle rolling topography is contrasted by the deep preglacial valley of the Pipestem Creek and it's tributaries. The few recessional moraines present are subdued or of high relief and show a well defined pattern of ice movement. Gravel and sand deposits of commercial value are present in the river valley. Other deposits of sand and gravel but of secondary importance occur in the form of esker, kames, and outwash.
