The Core Research Center (CRC) was established in 1974 by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to preserve valuable rock cores for use by scientists and educators from government, industry, and academia. The cylindrical sections of rock are permanently stored and available for examination and testing at the core storage and research facility in Denver, Colorado. The CRC is currently one of the largest and most heavily used public core repositories in the United States. The CRC encourages use of its facility by all interested parties. Tours of the facility are available by appointment.

A collection of well cuttings from the State of Indiana with a few from surrounding states. The well cuttings are filed in small envelopes identified with pertinent information and are stored in boxes in the basement of the Indiana Geological Survey. Each box has a file number which links it to other types of information. In addition to the archived cuttings, 80% of the cuttings are mounted on lithologic strip logs. The cuttings are glued on the strip log according to their correct depth. This gives the user the option to look at either the strip log or the actual well cuttings. There are 13,455 archived wells in the Indiana Geological Survey rock cuttings collection. This collection takes up approximately 15,000...

In 1960, the Kentucky Geological Survey was designated as the official repository for oil and gas drilling records, along with well samples, under the provisions of Kentucky Revised Statute 353. This statute requires that samples of rock cuttings from selected oil and gas test wells drilled in Kentucky be saved. Samples submitted to the Kentucky Geological Survey are stored, cataloged, washed, indexed, and protected for immediate or future use. The well sample collection contains cuttings from approximately 14,850 wells throughout Kentucky.

The cuttings collection is made up of well cuttings - rock samples that are cut by a bit in the process of well drilling and removed from the hole in the drilling mud. The samples arrive in two conditions, processed samples that have already been washed and organized in archival containers, or unprocessed samples, arriving in sampling bags which must be processed. The FGS has detailed guidelines for processing samples. This includes washing off drilling mud, drying samples, and determining how much sample to preserve. Clay samples can easily be washed away when processing samples, so an unwashed set is also kept for all samples. The standard sample size is 250-400 mg. Samples are stored by interval in paper envelopes...
