Abstract:
Instead of locating vast fields of oil for exploitation, two failed test holes drilled by the Esso Oil Company, one at 987 feet and the other 2,40 feet, yielded information relative to the geologic history of North Carolina. Further inquiries made by the Carolina Petroleum Company, between 1946 and 1947, also failed to locate fossil fuels but provided valuable information regarding the composition of the basement rocks within the state.
