Mt. Simon sandstone core extracted from the Illinois Basin. The sample dimensions are 2.9mm in diameter x 3.5 mm in length with a porosity of 0.134, which was imaged using micro-CT with a resolution of 1.74 micron / voxel. QEMSCAN analysis was performed for polished thin sections, which was then registered to the 3D image to generate a detailed map of the mineral structure. Minerals aggregated into groups and labeled as clay, quartz, feldspar, micas, and other high density minerals.
