Today we’ve reached 500m MD with EG-1, our first well at the Eden Project!
Pictured is a sample taken at 170m MD (measured depth) and provided by our wellsite geology friends at GeoScience Ltd. This is one of our favourites from the first well section, and stands out because of its pink/red colour. The colour is due to iron staining on the kaolinite and haematite present in the cuttings and as individual fragments. The presence of these alteration and accessory minerals indicates a small fracture zone.
