On the detectability of density change in steam-assisted gravity drainage reservoirs using muon tomography (The Leading Edge)

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.

“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…
