The purpose of this project is to interpret lithologic units using geophysical data obtained from 8 wells in the Cherokee Basin. Results show Gamma Ray (GR) values range from less than 20 to 300 degree API, Photo-electric (PE), values range from 1.5 to 5.5 b/e, and Bulk Density (RHOB) values range from 1.5 to 2.8 g/cc. 5 major facies were identified and recognized 27 lithology units, including 10 coal beds. The other facies include Sandstone, Shale and Limestone. The abundance of interbedded coal layers indicate cyclical deposition, alternating between high and low energy deposits.
