1 LABORATORY NO. 36770 Salt-sulfur water sent by G. W.
Evans, Oakville, Logan County, Ky. The well is on Mr.
Evans farm, six miles south of Russellville. It is 132 feet _
deep. A strong flow of fresh water was struck at 80 feet.
At 90 feet strong sulfur water was struck and at 116 feet
l a pretty strong flow of natural gas which burned 8 or 10
feet high when ignited. Sample gave strong test for me-
, tallic sulfids. Received about November 1st, 1912.
ANALYSlSrrOH gallon contains 172. grains of mineral
matter (2.95 grams per liter) composed of sodium chlorid,
calcium sulfate, calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate, .
magnesium sulfate, a little potassium sulfate and considerable
1 sodium sulfid. The water contains, also, some free hydrogen
sultid, the total present, both free and combined, being 8.4
grains to the gallon (0.144 gram per liter). o .
It is a good salt sulfur water.
, Two well waters sent by J. H. Follin, Oakville, Logan
County, Ky. The wells are about fifty feet apart and each l
` is about 80 feet deep. Both recently bored. Samples received
December 12, 1912. 4
. LABORATORY No. 36811 Sulfur water labeled No. 1.
ANALYsIs eOne gallon contains 29.8 grains of solid matter
i - (.51 gram per liter) composed of sodium chlorid, calcium
carbonate, magnesium carbonate and magnesium sulfate.
There are traces of iron. silica, potassium sulfate, strontium
sulfate and zinc carbonate. There is a trace of nitrite but _
no nitrate present and a trace of phosphate. There is also
a little hydrogen sulfid present.
It would be classed as a weak alkaline sulfur water.
p LABORATORY NO. 36812~eSulfur water, labeled No. 2. Gives
a strong test for metallic sulfid.
