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
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.
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.
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
Collection of pamphlets, brochures, and informational booklets from the US Department of the Interior, Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Indiana Department of Conservation, Indiana Geological Survey, Illinois Geological Survey, Kentucky Geological Survey, and more. Most are dated but have general information that could still be useful today.
As coal companies closed business in Indiana many times they deposited their records at the Indiana Geological Survey (IGS). The records in most cases were delivered in boxes or full filing cabinets without documentation. The IGS has preliminarily sorted through the records filing them by company and if possible county or Township-Range to make them discoverable. The records can contain anything from maps, analysis, logs with or without picks, descriptions, correspondence, etc.
American Metal Climax, Inc. (AMAX) added coal production to its diverse mining, metals, and energy concerns on November 1,1969 through a mutually approved merger with Ayrshire Collieries Corporation of Indiana. Ayrshire boasted a long and productive lineage, originating with the first mines established by Scottish immigrant, David Ingle, in the early 1850s near Evansville, Indiana. The Ayrshire name persisted through subsequent purchases of mine shafts by Electric Shovel Coal Corporation in 1927 and a merger with the Patoka Coal Company in 1939, but was rebranded as AMAX Coal Company on January 1, 1972. It became America's third-largest coal producer by 1975. Drilling records in this collection relate to the company's...
This collection contains scanned core analyses records collected with Kentucky oil and gas well drilling activity.
Photocopies of mine maps and data sheets with some film of mines used to compile the Indiana Coal Mine Information System (CMIS) which is a publicly accessible online map viewer (dnrmaps.dnr.in.gov/apps/cmis.htm) for historical coal mining information in Indiana.
This collection is comprised of digital, slide and print photographs taken during engineering geology, energy and minerals resource related field projects from 1970-2020. These photos document field sites, geologic features, landscapes and landforms from the various areas of Alaska. There are collections specific to each of the Division's sections that document the effort needed to complete the culling and documentation of exisiting photos. As of 2020, DGGS has cataloged 19,724 photos, with 12,813 available to the public. Only those photos with location information are available within the National Digital Catalog
The Historic Images Collection includes approximately 15,500 photographs, slides, lantern slides and digital media in this collection were taken during the course of geologic, mineral resource, and geologic hazard investigations carried out by Division of Geology and Mineral Resources? geoscientists and Division of Mineral Mining staff beginning in the first half of the 20th century. The collection includes images of important rock outcrops that demonstrate key features of stratigraphic units, fossils indicative of the age of rock formations, outcrop-scale geologic structures such as faults and folds, economically significant minerals and mine sites, and geologic hazards such as landslides and sinkholes. Images...
10,600 splits of analyzed coal samples; most also contain material for petrographic pellets; coal samples from West Virginia are sealed in plastic bags and stored in 1 cubic foot boxes As the coal stratigraphic database becomes available electronically, coal analyses will be included.
The collection consists of wire-line logs for approximately 20,000 oil and gas wells in West Virginia. The number and type of logs available varies from well to well Paper copies of geophysical logs from oil and gas wells
Geoscientific collections managed by California Geological Survey are aggregated in the National Digital Catalog to enhance discovery and use of valuable samples and data for further scientific research. Contact information and material access instructions are provided for the individual collections.
Cores represent over 2,000 individual core sites drilled across the State of Wisconsin; stored in over 56,000 (mainly cardboard) boxes; representing approximately 650,000 linear feet of the subsurface. The Flambeau Core subcollection is approximately 3 percent of the collection of rock cores from Wisconsin. Documentation for the Wisconsin core collection is routinely updated, as information becomes available.
This dataset is a collection of unpublished geologic field maps and transfer maps that represent over 100 years of field data collected by Virginia geological survey staff. These field records include hand-drawn notes, strike and dip, contacts, economic, structure and paleo information. Some maps have been scanned and are available digitally. Most maps are located in our Charlottesville, Va offices in paper format. All are unique, one-of-a-kind documents.
This collection currently contains approximately 24,000 oil- and gas- related surface samples, which is a subset of the 507,000 surface samples housed at the Alaska Geologic Materials Center. The Amoco Heritage Collection was donated by Amoco-BP in 2002 and contains samples from fieldwork conducted from 1960-1990 in high energy-resource-potential areas of Alaska.
This collection contains cuttings from stratigraphic tests drilled in the Jackson Purchase region of Kentucky during the U.S. Geological Survey / Kentucky Geological Survey geologic mapping program between 1960 and 1978. Physical samples are stored at the KGS Earth Analysis Research Library.
Geoscientific collections managed by Montana Geological Survey are aggregated in the National Digital Catalog to enhance discovery and use of valuable samples and data for further scientific research. Contact information and material access instructions are provided for the individual collections.
