Technical Report WRD91081 Viewed at 15:07:38 on 29/07/2010 Page 8 of 17. 5.0 Results Joint sounding data is presented in figures 2 and 3. Both soundings were located close to RN's 24676 and 24677 along line 10 of work Furness completed in 1983. Joint sounding 1 (P~24677) was representative of an increase in thickness, relative to sounding 2 (RN24676), of the Petrel Formation. The geoelectric sections reflect lithologies, shown in figures 4 and 5, of both bores. The success of RN24677, with the increase in thic~:ness of the Petrel Formation, was indicated as a signii:icant high in the resistivity profile along line 10 at l.983. Prot iles 1 and 2. presented in figures 6 and 7, ShOVI high resistivities when compared with the work of Furness. VES 3, shown in figure 8, was sited at 650m along line 1 and was representative of the environment along profiles 1 and 2. The Sirotem data obtained at VES 3 can not be used due to badly rece.ived Signal after the first eight channels. The geoelectric section of VES 3 implies no increase in the Petrel Formation thickness. After drilling at VES 3, RN27329. a silicified and cavernous Dolomitic environment was found. This Dolomitic environment was identified as a potential target within the survey objectives.
