Mitchell joined the Survey in 1929 as a geologist surveying from the York office of the Survey. He worked extensively on the Magnesian Limestones of Yorkshire and toured the area studying the building stones. His work included wartime activities on the coal-bearing sequences and he co-authored memoirs on the Wakefield, Barnsley and Leeds areas. His son Murray Mitchell followed him into the Survey working as a Carboniferous palaeontologist.
