The maximum burial in the Paris Basin was reached during the Upper Cretaceous [35], but the total thickness of the sediments that overlaid the Gault clay in the studied area remains approximate (Figure 1(b)).
Albian Gault clay formation in the area at east of Brienne-le-Chateau was studied for its mineralogy, its chemistry, and its petrophysical properties.
Above 35-40 m and in all other boreholes for which the thickness of Gault clay was lower than 35-40 m, the clay-rock porosity regularly increased from ~-25% up to 35% at 20 m and up to 40% near surface.
