Well logging has become a standard method in the oil industry for the investigation of subsurface geology. Accordingly, interpretation techniques have been mainly developed for use in sedimentary rocks, and the log responses of sediments are well known. However, this is not the case for igneous and metamorphic rocks. We present a compilation of log responses for mafic rocks from drill-holes in oceanic and continental basement. The holes cover a variety of mafic rocks: mid-ocean ridge basalt (MORB), gabbro, basalt and andesitic basalt from back-arc basins, flood basalt from large igneous provinces (LIPs), and continental metamorphic rocks.
