The new core viewing room at the Bureau's Houston Research Center core facility.
The Bureau of Economic Geology maintains what may be the largest collection of well core and rock material in the world, and about 850,000 boxes of the material is housed at its Houston Research Center (HRC). To provide access to more core for more geoscientists, explorationists, and students, the Bureau recently embarked on a campaign to renovate a new Core Layout and Viewing Area within the HRC. Occidental Petroleum (OXY)Occidental Petroleum (OXY) stepped up to the plate last year with a significant investment to begin the refit of the space, and tremendous progress has been made so far. The new room is currently ready for core researchers to utilize, but some work still needs to be done, including the installation of new state-of-the-art lighting and the provision of new microscopes and other equipment. If you would like to help the Bureau complete this important project by investing in core research at the HRC, please contact Mark W. Blount, External Affairs.
