  • Mineral prospecting case study 2

    We had recently carried out a copper prospecting survey. Electrodes were placed on the surface at 5m interval, one cable was connected to electrodes on surface and another cable is put in to the borehole. After repeating the surveys at nearby borehole, we generated two resistivity distribution images. We determined that the band of low resistivity approximately 30m below surface has a high chance ...

  • Prospects for development of technologies of radwaste geological isolation in Russia

    Based on the analysis of volumes, inventory and activity of all RW accumulated in Russia, the comparative estimation on methods of their safe final isolation has been conducted. More than 90% of all RW is low level activity wastes. For such waste, the most effective method of disposal is near the surface or in a superficial (shallow) underground facility created recently or one that is already ...

  • Trends, prospects and challenges in quantifying flow and transport through fractured rocks

    Among the current problems that hydrogeologists face, perhaps there is none as challenging as the characterization of fractured rock (Faybishenko and Benson 2000). This paper discusses issues associated with the quantification of flow and transport through fractured rocks on scales not exceeding those typically associated with single- and multi-well pressure (or flow) and tracer tests. As much of ...

  • Principal provisions of engineering and geological survey methodology in designing and construction of underground laboratory as a part of facility of RW underground isolation

    The most critical moment is the choice of a site for radioactive waste geological repository. Here the role of engineering and geological prospecting as a basis for the construction of a facility for underground isolation appears especially important; it is followed by finding a suitable area and subsequent allocation of the site and facility construction sites. The decision on the selection of ...

  • Seismic Reflection Method

    Compiled and rigorously edited stacking velocity data to produce velocity maps at specified travel time intervals. These maps were verified to be extremely accurate, enabling exploration staff at AMOCO Production's Alaska North Slope group to make much needed time-depth conversions. Produced time-structure Maps via interpretation of Gulf Coast seismic reflection data while employed with Conoco, ...

  • Borehole Log Interpretation

    While employed with Conoco, Inc. analyzed and correlated well-log data in order to produce geologic structural maps of subsurface horizons in Louisiana and Oklahoma, for the purpose of oil and gas prospect generation. Analyzed and correlated well-log data in order to map the top of a highly permeable subsurface formation that was utilized as an injection zone for the disposal of brines generated ...

  • GPR survey to identify cultural and archaeological features

    PROJECT: GPR survey with confirmatory digging LOCATION: Olmstead State Park, Washington PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Performed a reconnaissance GPR survey of an historical homestead, to identify / locate prospective locations of historical privies, wells and debris middens. Recommended digging locations within an area that was tantamount to finding a "needle ...
