The Maryland counties covered by these photographs include Allegany, Anne Arundel, Calvert, Cecil, Charles, Dorchester, Kent, Prince George’s, Queen Anne’s, Somerset, St. Mary’s, Talbot, Washington, and Worcester Counties. The scale of these photographs is not printed on the photographs; however, Maryland Geological Survey (MGS) calculates the scale to be approximately...
Seismic Refraction Surveys are digital and non-digital seismic refraction data, data analyses, and reports.
This collection contains sites with vertical seismic profile data, including shear wave and P-wave components. The sites are located primarily in the New Madrid Seismic Zone in western Kentucky and surrounding states.
Unwashed well cuttings from oil and gas wells in Alabama. Unwashed well cuttings from an unknown number of oil and gas wells in Alabama.
Collection contains original copies of geophysical well logs and records from 14210 wells drilled for uranium exploration and evaluation in New Mexico. Most of these are one-of-a-kind and not available elswhere. The collection has been 90% catalogged. A listing is available upon request.
location plats, completion reports and driller's logs for oil and gas wells drilled within West Virginina. Approximately 25,000 of the early, pre-regulation wells only have location plats physical logs are filled in 21 legal-sized filing cabinets
The oil and gas well cuttings collection consists of splits of cuttings from oil and gas wells. Most of the samples consist of small splits in small envelopes
There are over 1,000 individual logs from over 450 different holes across the state. Holes include municipal wells, monitoring wells as well as deep and shallow drill holes. Logs collected may include: gamma, caliper, single point resistivity, self potential, normal resistivity, fluid temperature, fluid conductivity, flow meter - heat pulse, flow meter- spinner, optical borehole imager, and acoustic borehole imager. Locations of boreholes and PDF images and LAS files for more than 700 Geophysical Logs can be viewed at https://data.wgnhs.wisc.edu/data-pres-2018/ . New logs are added to this online map as they are added to the WGNHS sample tracking system, Geobase.
This collection primarily contains economic geologic information on mines in Mohave County, but also includes more general files on other states and mineral commodities. William Crutchfield, Jr. earned his master's degree from The University of California in 1953. He began working for Santa Fe Mining, Inc. in California in the 1960s as a Mining Engineer and later as Exploration Manager. He stayed with the company until the 1980s.
Guy Atlee lived and worked in the Kingman area working the Turquoise mine (Mineral Park) and other mines near Chloride (IXL, Wrigley), Cerbat, and Kingman. He is known to have worked and traveled in the Victorville, Topock and other areas of California. Guy’s wife was Rose Atlee and they had a large family. The collection includes images of mines and workings as well as many images depicting daily life in Mohave County. The photos appear to cover a period from about the turn of the century through the 1920s.
The collection of hand samples was obtained from projects of the Massachusetts Water Resource Authority (MWRA) related to the construction of water and sewer lines, throughout mainly the eastern part of the state. The collection consists of 525 hand samples from which thin sections (525) were made; in addition, there are 21 boxes containing approximately 2 pound, hand samples from work on the Cosgrove Tunnel Project. The samples were collected by Father James Skehan and each chunk of rock has an identifier painted on it, referring to the station location. The thin sections and the hand samples are stored in cardboard boxes, on pallets, at the Record Center, on Deer Island in Boston Harbor. The condition of the collection...
General Paleontological samples, most are not cataloged. Consists of approximately 150,000 samples in total, most arranged by time period: Cambrian (1500), Ordovician (15,000), Silurian (17,000), Devonian (10,000), Mississippian (15,000), Pennsylvanian (77,000), and Tertiary/Cretaceous (100). Approximately 10,500 specimens are arranged by taxonomic group including brachiopods (7500), cephalopods (1000), and trilobites (2000).
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...
Digital data base containing coal analyses for coal beds in West Virginia. Coal quality data base
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.
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.
A collection of digital in-hole, vertical seismic data (in standard SEG-Y format) and paper records of field observations.
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.
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...
