Apparently an Indian Newspaper is reporting that something black is oosing from the earth in a villiage in India - samples sent off for investigation of the foul smelling liquid which is coming from holes/cracks in the earth.

Don't know if this is something that is natural but I've never heard of it - perhaps ATS members have.

Strange www.thehindu.com...

Natural occuring TAR maybe?
No disrespect to the shepherd that found it but if it is in a small isolated village he would not have seen it before and maybe not educated enough to know tar can seep through the earth to the surface. No idea myself, would be nice to find it is an unknown substance.

Nice find.

Perhaps this is similar to Paricutin in Mexico.
Check out the story here.

They do bare some similarities.

And they did describe this substance as being "like lava".

Maybe it is a new volcano?

I honestly don't know though, it's just speculation.

I will await the analysis of the materials and the conclusions from the geological survey team.

This could be really interesting. Hoping we get a follow up in a few weeks!

I am thinking perhaps natural deposits of oil "tar"
La Brea tar pits comes to mind.

some more information, though much more needed.

I see a cement pond in that shepherd's future.
(Props to BadBoYeed for getting in a Beverly Hillbillies reference in the time it took me to come up with a second line to avoid a completely pointless post)

Also...it's interesting that they call it "lava-like"...not "oil-like", or "tar-like".

Crude oil has many organic compounds within it.

This substance is described as non-organic by the geological survey team.

So it doesn't seem like it's oil.

They mentioned fire coming out of the hole as well.

That's why I am going down the "new volcano" theory as opposed to oil seeping out of a rift.

Looks like they fond an Ancient #ter, might be worth some money$$$.

I am in England and we have no major fault lines at all but we have TAR TUNNELS where it just seeps from the earth.

This is due to the molecular compounds found within the substance from the initial analysis conducted.

Tar is made from peat or pitch, which are full of organic compounds. Petrol can also be used to create tar-like substances, which also will have organic compounds within them.

This is why we have the distinction of it not being oil or tar. Because they are saying there is non-organic compounds within it.

This is a very important distinction.

Two quick additions.
Bitumen is natural oil tar, and it has organic compounds within it.

Coal tar is a product of coke production, and I am not sure about this but I can't find any organic compounds listed, however there are around 200+ compounds there so it would take some serious research. Apparently it is not organic but instead it has heterocyclic compounds instead.

Also Coal tar comes from industrial production of coke, I have never heard of it coming naturally.

Another edit :: Apparently coal does have organic compounds naturally, as it is a by-product of bitumen. But does the residual coal tar have organic compounds still? I don't know and I can't find any off hand but I'm doing a crash course here.

Only the very rich there have toilets..Didn't you see the movie "Eat My $hit" its for download at demoinoid...They just piss and # anywhere they want to.....They are learning though that they need to use a dump or some place to put it instead of having it all over the place for children, dogs pets, people to walk all in and for it to run in their creeks and ponds and rivers too.

Huh...I had no idea my second-line addition would result in an informative reply
I'm actually glad I threw it in there now.

Here are some sources that I glossed over for information.

Tar

Pitch
Peat
Bitumen
Coal Tar
Heterocyclic Compounds
Petroleum

Enjoy.

also ''inorganic''.

Haha Hey man I'm just sharing what I have learned by doing some initial research. I admit I am going way off course though, as I am still trying to figure out what kinds of organic compounds (may?) be in coal tar.

The reason that is me going way off course is because coal tar comes from industrial process, and I cannot find anything about it coming from nature. So it can't possibly be coal tar.

I just wanna know! Even though it's unrelated to everything else!
But what if it accidentally leads me to the answers about the OP incident?
Yes, must find out more about coal.

it doesn't sound like tar though, being ''inorganic'' and ''unknown'', persumably tar would be easily recognised.
