This collection includes paper originals and photocopies of reports beginning in 1936, and PDF scans of these reports, up to 1995. In more recent years, this information is available from the Wisconsin DNR via a computer database. Materials are arranged by county and PLSS locations.
Hand-drawn drill log cross-sections containing coal around Evansville, Indiana. Each log is labeled with an identification number but otherwise there is no other labeling or identifiers.

Kelsey Boltz has been a registered mining engineer and geologist in Arizona since the mid 1960s. A 1953 graduate of the Colorado School of Mines, he founded Colamer Corporation and Nuclear Dynamics, both companies active in the uranium industry in the Grants Uranium Region of New Mexico in the '50s, '60s and '70s. In 1981 he co-founded Century Capital, Inc., an investment banking and retail brokerage firm which provided several hundred million dollars financing for various industries including natural resource companies. In 1990 he started his exploration consulting company, Boltz Group International, which initiated and managed several mining projects in Mexico, Chile and Bolivia. The collection consists of geologic...

The SDF or Stratigraphic Data Files are a collection of paper drill records from thoughout Pennyslvania organized by 7.5 minute quadrangle. It is a prime source of subsurface lithology. Portions have been entered into the USGS NCRDS database.This is a Topo/geo resource which does not belong to any one staff member.The last estimate of the collection was 31,500 done is 1987. A better estimate is currently underway. The main use for the collection is in-house reference and research by PaGS staff.

Collection of reports containing from one to up to several hundred pages and water well files related to the MX Missile Project of the late 1970s and early 1980s. The collection is in 2 4-drawer filing cabinets. The geologic/hydrologic reports are kept at the NBMG, and some years ago, the cultural reports were sent to the Nevada Historical Society. The "Amount" is based on the number of reports and files listed on a typed index that may need revision. MX Files The area covered by the project is part of eastern and central Nevada. The collection is indexed by a typed list of reports and files in a binder, which needs to be reviewed against what is in the collection. The collection may be considered to become part...

This collection contains regulatory orders for each of the more than 2000 oil and gas fields in new Mexico. Data included are field creation/discovery data, area the field encompasses, dates when particular land plats were added to or incoprporated into the field, stratigraohic and areal definition of the field, and special rules and regulations governing operations in the field, and dates, rules and restrictions concerning waterflood, enhanced recovery, or unitization of the field. This information has been placed in an Access database by our staff and is also available in hardcopy volumes. There are 61 binders of information encopassing 13481 regulatory orders.

3296 sidewall cores from 124 oil & natural gas exploration and development wells in New Mexico. This collection contains 3,296 sidewall cores from 124 oil & natural gas exploration and development wells in New Mexico. Although this collection is growing, there is a limit to the volume of new acquisitions we can accept because of very limited storage space.

Continuous bedrock core from about 50 sites across CT. Stored in 1100 boxes. This collection has been rescued three times since its formation in the late 1980's. Formerly administrative responsibility was shared between the University of Connecticut Dept. of Geology and Geophysics (now disbanded) and the Dept. of Environmental Protection, Geological and Natural History Survey. The State Survey now houses the collection and is the sole administrator.

This collection includes unpublished maps in Arizona, which were compiled for uranium resource assessment, conducted in 1980. Collection includes National Uranium Resource Assessment (NURE) compilation project maps. This collection has not yet been cataloged. Please contact the Arizona Geological Survey to inquire about this collection.

These reports describe in detail the history of individual oil & gas wells, including daily drilling activity, information on cores, showss amd drill-stem tests, and completion and production information. Well history reports - multiple page reports detailing drilling, testing, and completion work on oil & gas wells. This information should be scanned into a digital format that contains searchable data fields/metadata.

Digital in-hole, vertical seismic data in standard SEG-Y format. Some records embedded with GPS coordinates. Digital files of processed data also available. Includes paper records of field observations. Digital data on geologist's PC. Should be centralized.

This collection contains coalbed methane desorption data on 31 coalbed methane test wells drilled in new Mexico. There are 589 pages of information. We would like to prepare a digital catalog of this infomartion and link that catalog to scanned images of the reports in order to increase/maximize utility.

Hand samples collected from outcrops during field work by survey staff members and students. Hand samples were collected in the filed by various staff members and students. Only partially organized and cataloged in several different digital and paper databases. Metadata content of databases is not uniform. There are approximately 6500 samples cataloged in various paper and digital databases and several thousand samples that have yet to be either organized or cataloged. This collection is stored in trailers (mobile homes) and container units and is currently not fully cataloged, organized or accessible.

The Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology (MBMG) Mining Property File collection was amassed over the years through private and industry donations of engineering and geologic reports, pictures, correspondence, news clippings, and production information. The collection presently contains over 4,400 property-specific files (records). The physical files are organized first by Montana county and then by mine or project name. Files may contain information related to a particular mining claim, a collection of claims, or a mining exploration project. Metadata describing each record includes property name, location (county, historical mining district, township, range and section), georeferences (latitude and longitude), and...

Website of various Nevada geothermal resource information, which contains 227 geothermal site descriptions and related digital maps, photographs, and information sources. Geothermal Resources of Nevada Two NBMG geologists spend part of their time keeping up this database. Aside from the list of 227 geothermal sites which are linked to site descriptions and maps, the website also contains an interactive map based on NBMG Map 141, "Nevada Geothermal Resources," which shows locations of all significant occurrences of geothermal water in Nevada of which more than 300 are linked to site descriptions and/or databases accessed by mouse clicks; links to the files used to create the interactive map; a list linked to 82 large-scale...

Minnesota Geological Survey maintains a database of over 4000 rock property values that are needed for geologic mapping, and are similarly used by partner agencies and by industry to support exploration. These data thus help relate geophysical anomaly signatures to probable rock types, and provide constraints on the use of anomaly data as a tool for mapping and for modeling geology at depth. Most of the density and magnetization data contained in this database were acquired over the last two decades as part of on-going activities. Paleozoic samples were collected from Iowa and included in the database because they provide a representative suite of data for rocks present, but not widely exposed in Minnesota. Additional...
