Hoyling, N., 1950. Tentative method of test for porosity of rocks, including samples of drill cores. Record  1950/016. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

Two methods are outlined in this report. The first, is a method intended for the determination of porosity of consolidated sediments. The method is applicable to those sediments included in rotary drill cores and hand specimens of rock collected in the field. The second, is a method intended for the determination of permeability. It is applicable to suitably sized samples of rocks and any other substances whose constitutions permit of their being treated by the procedure set out in this method, subject to their own inherent limitations relative to this method. This report provides a detailed description of each of these methods.
