Uum Extends Cut Bauk Lime Fay Area Two Miles
Crade of 40-Gravity Found
50 Feet Below Madison Top
That production of oil from the Madison limestone in the Cut
Bank field may be much more widespread than was recently be
lieved, has been emphasized in a completion by the
Company of California, extending the lime pay area of the field
more than two miles south of previous lime production boundaries.
The'well that got oil in the lime is the company's No. 7 on its
McGuinness unit, C SW NE NWI6-35N-5W, in what had been de

Above, Madison lime producing area of the Cat Bank field.
First well in tkis field to find oil in the lime was Carter's No. 1
Brindley, at extreme top of map. Six miles to the sonth, at the
bottom of the map, is Union's No. 7 McGuinness, that got
9,000,000 feet of gas in the Cot Bank sand, then went 49 feet
into the Madison lime to find oil of 40 gravity. Significance of
the development is still not fully determined.

MANY WELLS V-'.SUMING
IN NORTH STa\\ FIELDS
-A
Though the Kevin-Sunburst and \nk fields are still heavily
blanketed with packed snow, warn, \\ tther this week brought
a resumption of operations by many \ itors. In more southern
parts of the state, warmer tempera tu and Chinook winds have
swept away virtually all snow, though some operations in these
areas are now having trouble with mud. Outlook, unless there is
a material change in the weather, is that practically all drilling
operations will be resumed by the first of next week. j
McGuinness Completion Main
Item of Interest, Cut Bank
Finding of oil in the Madison lime by Union-McGuinness No. 7
was the chief development of interest in the Cut Bank field during
the week, with action as a whole just beginning to resume following
the storm that shut down nearly the entire field.

Montana Power Co. this week
made hole past 2885 feet in its wild
cat north of the Reagan Madison
lime producers, west of the^Cut
Bank field and a mile south of the
Alberta-Montana border, on the
Blackfeet Indian reservation. This
well is drilling with rotary tools
and is expected to top the Madison
lime during the coming week.
Poston Test
Shuts Down
H. L. Poston has shut down his
wildcat near Kalispell, the only
well now being drilled in Montana
west of the Rocky mountains, and
will not resume until spring. Seven
Inch pipe has been landed at 1475,
at which depth the well was still
drilling in clay and sand, believed
to be glacial wash.
Bears Den

I The Texas Company this week
made hole past 2884 feet In its No. 1
Sorrell, on the southeast flank of
the Bears Den field. Last reported
top In this well was ribbon sand,

Some wells are near the comple
tion stage but none appeared to be
of more than average caliber.
Drilling has been resumed on two
outpost wells, one being Texaco's
Black Bear No. I west of any pres
ent production in the field, and
