Abstract: Northwest Java Basin (NWJB) is one of the proven hydrocarbon basins in Indonesia. The scope of this paper will focus onthe shales and sandstone interval within Y1 well in Karawang area, NWJB, Indonesia.A cored interval from Y1 well was chosen for an investigation of the clay minerology for the gamma-ray activity and with the purpose of determining how the Spectral Natural Gamma (SNG) log could be used as an indicator of source rock and reservoir quality. The Th/U as a redox indicator is used to assert that the shales are of anoxic conditions of shallow marine environments. Despite the relatively high insoluble Th values (60-74.15) ppm, the presence of U in substantial amounts, which only occurs in reducing conditions where it is preserved as a lower insoluble valence (U4+) explains for the low Th/U values ranging between (5.8-7.1) ppm/ppm. The overall Th/U value of the evaluated shales remain less than 25, where Th/U
