IXL Industries clay quarry near Ravenscrag, Saskatchewan in 1984.

Layers of the Whitemud Formation are being mined. The layer being extracted is a silty stoneware (equivalent to Plainsman 3D). Above that is a ball clay (Plainsman A2). Above that is a light burning stoneware (Plainsman A3 and B). A foot-thick layer of hard volcanic ash is visible in the green over burden at the top.
