All throughout the '80's and early '90's , ETI collected thousands of
surface geochemical samples from all over the western US, specifically
in the Western Overthrust Belt, Nevada and SE Colorado/SW Kansas (Morrow
Trend) areas. Over the last year, ETI has secured sole ownership of these
data and can now offer them for late sale at a fraction of today's costs.
These data provide a valuable addition to ongoing exploration activities
by giving specific information on the location, distribution and compositions
of light hydrocarbon microseepage.
Results are able to map prospective hydrocarbon trends and confirm the
presence of petrogenic gases in the vicinity of specific structures of
Our extensive database includes 12,212 surface geochemical samples collected
over the Nevada-Utah area.
The compositional data gathered in some areas in separate years (Pine
Valley, Newark Valley, Railroad Valley), show excellent reproducibility.
To have both spatial and compositional clustering, clearly demonstrates
the stability, and repeatability of light soil gas data if properly collected
In Nevada we have regional type survey data from thirteen different valleys,
including Pine, Huntington and Railroad Valley. In the Overthrust Belt
the coverage includes part of Western Wyoming, SE Idaho and NW Utah. The
Morrow area in Kansas was sampled on a regional grid before many of the
discoveries were made.
All data sets include analyses of methane to butane light hydrocarbons
by FID, He, H2 by TCD.
