    A Volcano Buried In SE Louisiana? “Door Point: A Buried Volcano In Southeast Louisian

    A Volcano Buried In SE Louisiana? “Door Point: A Buried Volcano In Southeast Louisiana”

    (Before It's News)
    This one is straight out of the sit back and hold on to your hat category; according to a paper written in 1976, there is a buried volcano in Southeast Louisiana. This CANNOT BE the SAME part of Louisiana that is now being impacted by the dreaded Louisiana Sinkhole in Assumption Parish could it? You won't believe this! From a 1976 paper done for the Gulf Coast Association Of Geological Societies, Volume XXVI, 1976 by Jules Braunstein and Claude E. McMichael we get "Door Point: A Buried Volcano In Southeast Louisiana." Is THIS why BP is so concerned about Volcanoes all of a sudden? Check out the map below of what the Earth and America looked like during the Late Cretaceous Age when this buried volcano was last active. For all those who doubt this report, the original source can be found here.

    An exploratory well, the Shell Oil Company, State Lease 3956 No. 1, Offshore St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana, was completed in 1963 at a total depth of 8538 feet. The last 1300 feet of hole was cored and drilled through volcanic material of Late Cretaceous Age. Pre-drilling seismic data had revealed the presence on this prospect of intrusive material with a density slightly higher than that of the surrounding sediments. Gravity data defined a weak maximum here, and no salt was believed to be present.

    The igneous material consisted of angular fragments of altered porphyritic basic rock. In cores it proved to be evenly bedded and cemented by sparry calcite. Radioactivity age dating fixed a minimum age of crystallization of this rock at 82 m.y. + 8, or middle Late Cretaceous (Austin). Bulk density of the igneous rock ranged from 2.02 gm/cc near the top of its occurrence to 2.53 gm/cc near the bottom of the well.

    Three gas accumulations, with an aggregate thickness of 38 feet, were encountered in the Miocene section between 5092 and 6219 feet in the Shell well. Gas-bearing sands were not present in two other wells drilled later on the same structure (Fig. 2).

    Although evidence of Late Cretaceous volcanic activity is widespread in northern Louisiana, as well as in Mississippi, and southeast of Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico, the Door Point prospect lies within an area that had been previously designated as being free of volcanism.
    A map of Earth during the Late Cretaceous Period shows a much different world than the one that we live in today. Let's all hope that this isn't what it will soon look like again any time soon in the future. Is this why environmental activist Erin Brockovich is getting involved? With all of the activity going on down there now, including a 'GET OUT NOW!!!' warning issued and the massive release of methane in the area, is something MUCH LARGER going on?


    So, where is this so-called 'Door Point' that is mentioned in this 1976 report? Here's the map and diagram straight from the report. Notice at the top, Shell Oil Co is mentioned.

    PIERRE PART — Environmental activist Erin Brockovich told a group of Bayou Corne residents on Saturday that standing up and taking legal action against the company that owns a failed salt dome cavern believed to have caused the Assumption Parish sinkhole is the only way they will find relief from the emergency.

    "For those of you who are there, I want you to really consider your safety and why you're there," she said. "For those of you who have left, it is time to stand up and say, individually, as a community, as this homeowner, 'I'm going to take some action,' and that's why we're here."

    Brockovich delivered her remarks during a community meeting at the American Legion Hall on La. 70 in Pierre Part, where she and Los Angeles lawyers Thomas V. Girardi and Bob Bowcock fielded a litany of legal questions from the standing-room-only crowd.

    It may have stated back in May 2012, but in early August 2012,it was reported that...
    A nearly 400-foot deep sinkhole in Louisiana has swallowed all of the trees in its area and enacted a mandatory evacuation order for about 150 residences for fear of potential radiation and explosions.
    The sinkhole is 1,500 feet from a butane gas cavern. If the current sinkhole grows, it could rupture the adjoining salt domes. Not a good situation. It would be a domino effect that could devastate and impact a huge area of that state (Including New Orleans).




    The gaping hole has a diameter of 372 feet. It is in Assumption Parish, La., about 50 miles south of Baton Rouge.

    "Though few people in the United States may actually experience an erupting volcano, the evidence for earlier volcanism is preserved in many rocks of North America. Features seen in volcanic rocks only hours old are also present in ancient volcanic rocks, both at the surface and buried beneath younger deposits." -- Excerpt from: Brantley, 1994
