A palaeomagnetic study of four oriented cores was conducted to better understand the timing of diagenetic events in the Mississippian Barnett Shale, a primary source rock and the unconventional gas reservoir in the Fort Worth Basin, Texas. Thermal demagnetization removes a present-field modern viscous remanent magnetization (VRM) as well as a chemical remanent magnetization (CRM) that has shallow inclinations and streaked south–SE-directed declinations. The VRM was used to orient the CRM data for one well and it produced a similar streak of directions. The streaking of directions could represent a mixing trend between two or more CRMs. Specimens from...
