57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopic studies on deep subsurface sediments collected from test well GGAG#699 located in Gandhar oil field of Cambay basin, Gujarat is reported. It is found that iron if mainly present in some clay (both in high spin Fe2+ and Fe3+ state) along with fluctuating amount of pyrite and siderite. The distribution trend of iron bearing minerals can provide useful information about redox environment and in estimating the quality of source rocks in sediments.

Keywords: Source rocks, 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopic study, Iron bearing minerals, Cambay basin.
