The Canadian Society for Exploration Geophysicists (CSEG) Recorder featured Ideon CTO reflecting on the origins of Ideon Technologies and the idea that sparked it all.
Ideon’s plans for borehole muon detector field trials were featured in AZoMining, an online publication for the mining community, providing the latest industry news, information and insights from across the industry.
Writer Elsie Ross recaps the potential of muon tomography for SAGD reservoir monitoring in this piece that ran in the Daily Oil Bulletin on July 27, 2020.
Writer Isabelle Kirkwood features Ideon Technologies in Betakit, Canada’s only independent publication dedicated to reporting on homegrown startups and tech innovation.
The Leading Edge, published by the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), introduces new geophysical theory, instrumentation, and established practices to scientists in a wide range of geoscience disciplines. This paper shows how muon tomography is applicable to monitor SAGD reservoirs
across realistic reservoir depth ranges of several hundred meters
and may provide a marked improvement in spatial resolution in
detecting density changes. Applying muon tomography in this way can reduce monitoring costs and reduce overall environmental impact.
Writer Matthew Parizot explains how Ideon Technologies’ new cosmic ray muon tomography technology uses sub-atomic particles from space to locate mineral deposits.
British Columbia Technology Network (BC T-Net) operates the leading portal for the high-tech industry in BC, and covered the May 2020 launch of Ideon Technologies.
Techcouver is the online newspaper of record for the British Columbian technology industry.
Nelson Bennett of Business in Vancouver shares how Ideon’s discovery platform could “eliminate the need for a whole lot of conventional test drilling.”
Managing Editor Henry Lazenby declares Canada-based start-up Ideon Technologies’ cosmic-ray muon tomography technology a potentially game-changing innovation for the mineral exploration industry. (subscription required)
“Most mineral deposits are associated with very dense minerals, so you can essentially map the edge of an orebody, if you can get underneath it.” — Dr. Craig Hart, director of the Mineral Deposit Research Unit at The University of British Columbia, speaking about muon tomography under development by CRM GeoTomography Technologies (now Ideon Technologies…
CTO Doug Schouten is published in The Recorder, the official publication of the Canadian Society of Exploration Geophysicists (CSEG).
