Collection of rock cores from Florida


The FGS receives 2, 3 and 4 inch bore hole core samples. The core can be spot cores - taken from specific intervals, or continuous core ¿ representing the entire length of a bore hole. Samples arrive in various containers, and many times must be reboxed for long term storage. The majority of our samples are stored in cardboard boxes, but we do have a small percentage of cores in wooden boxes and PVC. For our 2 and 3 inch cores we have boxes that hold 8-10 feet of sample, similar to traditional NQ core boxes. The boxes are made of cardboard and are assembled by folding and stapling the sides. The boxes are 25.5¿ x 13¿ x 2.5¿. Our 4 inch cores are also stored in cardboard boxes. These boxes hold 4 feet of sample and are 26¿ x 9¿ x 4.5¿. [...]

NGGDPP Collection Extension

usageTrendThe trend is expected to increase both internally and externally. Internal projects have been on the rise especially those that require sampling of cores and core analysis. We also expect an increase in external visitors as awareness of our collection increase and as the samples become more relevant.
