39 – Potash
What you will learn
- Insights into an unconventional use of well logs
- Step-by-step procedures for analysis
- “Computer ready” mathematics
- Answer oriented results, with quality control guided by core assays
This course covers visual and numerical log analysis methods for evaluating potash-bearing rocks. Potash mining is found in Saskatchewan, New Mexico, Eastern Canada, Russia and many parts of Europe, Asia, and North Africa, rivaling the oil industry in value produced. You will learn how to handle the differences between ancient and modern logs, and the use of both oilfield and non-oilfield logging tools. The concepts can be extended to other evaporite minerals of commercial interest.
