Today, I discovered orange cable being strung out along C.R. 800 in northern Ashland county. I also found a thumper truck parked at the Jackson Township garage lot. The cable stretches from just inside Polk all the way to C.R. 175. I was lucky to come across a man that was laying the cable and stopped to talk to him. He was with Precision Geophysical of Millersburg. He informed me that they were contracted out by a large oil company, but, he wasn't told which one, it's a secret I guess. He also told me that it was a three square mile test area with c.r. 800 in the center.
I know MFC was out here about a month or so ago, maybe they knew someone was interested in the acreage around here. they were trying to get leases. The people I know didn't sign. I also agree, MFC, to me, is not a large oil company. We are talking three square miles, that has got to be expensive to do testing. Precision even ran a line down township road 351. That would be a line north, perpendicular to 800 and center.
Seismic testing occurring again today, 1/2 mile south along C.R. 601. I was informed they're testing four square miles.
