Welcome to HM Research Associates

welcome to HM Research & Associates

HM Research Associates are the leading provider of heavy mineral provenance and stratigraphic services to the petroleum industry. The company has a strong commitment to research and has extensive experience of working with clastic reservoir sequences throughout the stratigraphic record and in sedimentary basins around the world.

Heavy minerals are diagnostic indicators of sandstone provenance, and provide crucial information on sediment transport pathways, sand body distribution and palaeogeography.

Heavy mineral stratigraphy is an alternative method of correlation based on the recognition of stratigraphic changes in mineralogy. It is used both to complement biostratigraphic methods and as a stand-alone method in barren sequences such as continental red beds.
