Circular 30 — Index to Samples from Oil and Gas Well Tests in Library at Socorro, New Mexico

By Robert. A. Bieberman and Florence. B. Crespin, 1955, 24 pp.

Collection of samples from oil and gas well tests in New Mexico by the New Mexico Bureau of Mines and Mineral Resources was commenced shortly after its establishment in 1927. Through the years the collection has grown until, at present, samples from nearly 31600 wells from all parts of New Mexico are included. Samples from cuttings and cores in the collection are indexed and readily available for study.

The collection provides a state-wide record of subsurface stratigraphy and is a permanent repository for this valuable geological material. Though only a small proportion of the field wells are represented at present, every effort has been made to secure samples from wildcat tests. New accessions are being made constantly as drllling progresses. The library will have constantly increasing value as the search for liquid and gaseous fuels becomes more intensive.

This index, in which the wells are listed by section, township, and range, was prepared as a reference catalog for the benefit of those interested in the subsurface data of New Mexico and covers samples processed up to January 11 1955. This list supersedes all lists previously issued, and supplementary lists will be made available from time to time as later samples are processed. We trust that users of the index will bring any errors to our attention.

Facilities are provided in Socorro for examination and study of samples at any time by qualified individuals and organizations.
