Title: Recent Petroleum Activities in Coastal Plain of South Georgia

Author(s): A. C. Munyan (2)


A brief discussion of the structural map prepared by Prettyman and Cave in 1923 is presented to show that their key bed was unwisely selected. Many wells drilled in the past are practically useless for correlation purposes to-day because of the lack of suitable records. In addition there are few aids to correlations outside of lithology, and it is suggested that a comprehensive study of the microfauna be made. Several comparisons are made to show the possible relation between topography and subsurface structure in three widely separated parts of the Georgia Coastal Plain, and hope is expressed that these areas will be investigated. News of leasing and future deep tests is brought up to date as far as possible.
