Correct determining the lithology of a rock formation is one of the main goals of geophysical interpretation. The application for analysis of borehole geophysical measurements encoded in Log ASCII Standard format files was created. Appropriate choice of geophysical parameters allows to determine the percentage volume of elements in the rock formation, as well as the porosity and the water saturation of the formation. For the precisest solution a conjugate gradient method with Monte Carlo starting points was used.
