Organic geochemistry of ODP Site 128-799 (Table 1), supplement to: Kettler, Richard M (1995): Incipient bitumen generation in Miocene siliceous sedimentary rocks from the Japan Sea. Organic Geochemistry, 23(7), 699-708

Richard M Kettler
Samples of Quaternary through Miocene diatomaceous sediment and siliceous sedimentary rock from the Japan Sea (ODP Leg 128, Site 799) were examined to determine the origin of bitumen encountered during drilling, whether previously published studies using Rock-Eval pyrolysis have accurately assessed organic matter type and maturity, and if evidence exists to postulate the presence of a Kuroko-type massive sulfide deposit at depth or along depositional strike. Whole-rock total organic carbon:total nitrogen ratios have values ranging...
