Lithology and Provenance Study for 22 wells of the North Grand Banks

Rocktype in partnership with RockWash has undertaken a data rich study of the lithology and provenance of the North Grand Banks wells. The foundation of this study is continuous XRF elemental profiles for all available cuttings samples from each well, automated mineralogy using QEMSCAN analysis and quantitative XRD analysis for selected samples. Project was completed November 2018.

Twenty two study wells in Newfoundland, East Canada.
