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...

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.
