DIAGENETICS AND PARAGENETIC STUDY OF LIMESTONE BULU FORMATION, MULYOAGUNG AREA,

SINGGAHAN DISTRICT, TUBAN, EAST JAVA

ABSTRACT

Reseach area located on Tuban, East Java with coordinate 6055’13’’-6057’55” LS and
111045’37”-111047’47” BT. Physsiographicly, research area located in Anticlinorium
Rembang. Method of this research are geological mapping, rock sampling and petrography
analysis for knowing diagenetic process been, then make limestone paragenetic of Bulu
Formation for knowing diagenetic environtment changes been based on steno superpossision
law.

Diagenesis is an activity which contain physical and chemistry changes in sediment and
sedimentary rock after depositional, uncontain high pressure and temperature such us
metamorphism. With doing diagenesis study, we can know processes which affact porosity in
limestone.

Study was do with 9 limestone sample of Bulu Formation. The result of these sample is that
proses of diagenesis are: cementation, micritisation microbial, dolomitisation-dedolomitation,
neomofmism, compaction and disolution. Diagenesis environtmen of Bulu Formation’s
limestone are marine phreatic, mixing zone, burial, meteoric phreatic and meteoric vadose.

At the end, aim of this study is for knowing that limestone of Bulu Formation could be good
resevoir or not in North of East Java Basin based on porosity effected of diagenetic process
which have been.
