Thin Section Analysis - $310.00 per sample.

Includes a basic petrographic description, including visual estimation of grain size, sorting, porosity and mineral abundances, fabric, rock classification, porosity varieties and abundances. Includes a discussion of diagenesis, diagenetic sequence, porosity origins and development, and controls on porosity and permeability. Two (2) color photomicrographs per sample with complete written descriptions are included. Thin section preparation extra.

Detailed Thin Section Analysis - $435 per sample.

Detailed thin section analysis, including measurement of mean grain size, sorting, and point count determination of mineral abundances and porosity (minimum 300 points per thin section). Includes determination of Vshale, shale distribution, porosity varieties and abundances with a discussion of deagenesis, diagenetic sequence, porosity origins and developement, controls on porosity and permeability. Point count data is presented in tabular form with two (2) color photomicrographs accompanied by detailed photomicrographs descriptions. Thin section preparation extra.

Thin Section Preparation - $60 per sample.

Preparation includes impregnation with blue dyed epoxy and Alizarin Red S stains where appropriate.

Feldspar Stain - $3 per sample; Carbonate Stain - $3 per sample.

Data output includes two (2) photographs at varying maginfication documenting significant rock properties, pors, pore throats, clays, framework grains and cements. Price includes complete written description, and elemental abundance from EDS.

XRF Elemental Analysis - $195 per sample.

Analysis provides data for 20-30 elements in clean sandstones and carbonates, and up to 35 elements in shales, shaley sandstones, and shaley carbonates. Analyses can be performed on core, sidewall core, cuttings, or outcrop samples.
