Stratigraphy of the Three Boreholes

Figures 4, 5, and 6 are summaries of the stratigraphy penetrated by the Gaydusek WII, Kenyon #1, and KGS #1 Jones test holes, respectively, calibrated with a standard gamma ray log of each test hole. Figure 7 is a summary of the stratigraphy penetrated by the Haberer. Depths to the top of the Graneros Shale, Dakota Formation, Kiowa Formation, and Permian top in feet from land surface in the three FY90 test holes are given in Table 1.
