Abstract

Much attention has recently been given, by geolog­ists, to prolific water bearing horizon and a potent­ial oil horizon, known as the Kibbey sandstone, which lies deeply buried under much of central Montana. In some local­ities the sandstone is dry, and its identification in cut­tings from deep wells has in many cases proved difficult.
