Mohawk Valley Cores

a subset of the New York State Museum Bedrock Core Collection




This set includes 52 cores collected from the Mohawk River Valley, NY (Herkimer, Fulton, Montgomery, Schoharie, and Saratoga Counties). Each well was cored continuously from the top of bedrock to the total depth (TD), capturing a complete stratigraphic section of Late Ordovician to (in most cases) Precambrian basement. Core diameters are BX and NX, and lengths range from ~400 to ~1400 feet. The Mohawk Valley cores are of particular value because they were collected at the north end of the Appalachian Basin, in an area where there has been little other exploratory drilling. The results from previous analyses are available upon request.
