Crested Butte Colorado USGS Borehole Logging Groundwater The To Do List: Making the Most of your Rental - Rental equipment from Mount Sopris can be the most economical solution for short-term, non-recurring projects.  We have the most comprehensive range of solutions for small boreholes, ideal for groundwater, mining, geotechnical, and environmental investigations.Mount Sopris offers everything rental customers will need, including probes, data acquisition system, winch, software and all accessories – backed by our best-in-class support. There are, however, a few things that our rental customers must DO to ensure the success of their project:
Core logging software for WellCAD CoreCAD in mining Points to Consider while buying Core Logging Software - Core logging has been traditionally done manually. While it has served well for geologists for decades, it fails to keep pace with the technological developments witnessed across mining, petroleum, and groundwater. Some of the main drawbacks include time-consuming manual processes, need for extensive manpower for miles of core and problems in reporting, formatting, and record keeping. That’s where a core logging software like CoreCAD is very useful.
Exploration 17 mining show square logo Once every decade! Don’t miss Exploration ’17 - Exploration ‘17 is the sixth of the very successful series of DMEC decennial mining exploration conferences, which have been held in the seventh year of every decade starting in 1967. The theme of the Exploration ’17 conference is “Integrating the Geosciences: The Challenge of Discovery”, featuring a multi-national, multi-disciplinary technical programme, exhibition, workshops and field schools.Mount Sopris Instruments and ALT will be attending this once-every-10-year event. Please visit us in booth 206 to ask about our new technologies including the Spectral Induced Polarization (SIP) sonde, the Neutron Generator (nGen) sonde,the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) probe in rental, our new 2500 meter IWA winch, and product upgrades for the Heat Pulse Flowmeter and Inline Fluid Temp and Conductivity. Lastly, we will also be on hand to give demonstrations of the new Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and Casing Integrity Workspaces in WellCAD software Version 5.2.
