A comprehensive study of seep carbonates at the top of the organic- rich Maastrichtian to Danian Moreno Formation in the Panoche Hills (CA) reveals the mechanisms of generation, expulsion and migration of biogenic methane which fed the seeps. Two selected outcrops show seep carbonates developed at the tip of sand dykes intrude up into the Moreno Formation from deeper sandbodies.

“I was always looking for a deal where I could get some slice of the pie.” That’s AAPG Emeritus Member Terry Mather, this year’s Norman H. Foster Outstanding Explorer Award winner, talking about motivation, talking about his life in exploration (specifically wildcatting), talking about the excitement, and talking about – at times – the letdown, where there wasn’t a slice of the pie.
