A number of surveys completed during the past two years indicate that the geochemical prospecting technique can be applied successfully only when an area is explored which is sufficiently large to enable ready distinction of the anomaly from the background.Geochemical anomalies found by reconnaissance sampling have been proved to be associated with structure by the reflection seismograph. These confirmations indicate that the two methods can be used to supplement one another; one to detect the possible presence of a petroleum accumulation and the other to determine the probable depth of the accumulation.The results of a reconnaissance geochemical survey over the Heidelberg Area of Jasper County, Mississippi, are presented.
