Borehole Geophysical Equipment for Mining

Borehole Geophysical Equipment for Mining

Geophysical logs provide petrophysical property information important to exploration geophysicists, geologists, mine managers, and multi-disciplinary professionals involved in exploration, mine-site production and development, mine de-watering, and many other mining industry demands. Mount Sopris geophysical logging tools have been demonstrated in a wide variety of geologic environments often found in an exploration setting and have proven useful in geologic interpretations and in-situ mineral evaluation. Listed below are common applications with links to Mount Sopris tools that address these aspects. Contact Us for details.
