The Midland Core Research Center (MCRC) contains nearly 400,000 boxes of core and cuttings available for public viewing and research. Midland, Austin, and Houston core facilities have combined holdings of nearly 2 million boxes of geologic material.
The CONTINUUM Geologic Database is a searchable database for all CRC core and well cutting holdings. Some Austin and Midland data are not currently included in CONTINUUM; please contact Nathan Ivicic (512-471-0402) if you have any questions regarding this.
