Detailed logs of 28 wildcat wells in Lee, Wise, Buchanan, Montgomery, and Dickenson Counties, Virginia

January 1, 1994

The Clinchfield Coal Company No. 102 well was drilled in the western part of Buchanan County near the Dickinson County line.  The well started in the Pennsylvanian Norton formation and originally stopped in the Big Stone Gap shale.  It was later deepened during 1950 to a total depth of 5847 but the samples from the deepened hole were not available for study when this report was prepared.  The Clinchfield Coal Company kindly made available for study and publication the samples from the surface to a depth of 4508 feet.
