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.

New Product Coming Soon: Neutron Generator Tool!

New Product Coming Soon: Neutron Generator Tool!

Mount Sopris is excited to announce the upcoming release of a new product! We have teamed up with Starfire Industries to develop a neutron probe that eliminates the use of radioactive materials for neutron production. The new QL40-nGEN is scheduled to be available in early 2018 and is especially useful for those who cannot use Am-Be or D-T sources due to licensing issues. With the new QL40-nGEN, radiation can be turned off and on, which increases overall safety and reduces the inconveniences that are associated with the use of radioactive sources. In contrast to a conventional neutron probe, it does not require professional license for handling or costly, secure storage and transportation.

Borehole Conditions for Engineering Projects- AEG Short Course

Posted by on Sep 8, 2017 in Blog, News | Comments Off on Borehole Conditions for Engineering Projects- AEG Short Course

Borehole Conditions for Engineering Projects- AEG Short Course

Information gleaned from rock cores and testing in the resultant borehole create the fundamental data source for use in analysis and design on many engineering and environmental projects. This course will train participants in collecting data during drilling, describing rock core, in-situ testing in the borehole, and interpreting and presenting information from these sources. The course instructors have wide experience with investigations in rock and include geologists specializing in engineering and environmental geology, a driller, and a geophysicist.
