A Feasibility Study of the Use of Surface Redox Measurements to Detect Subsurface Methane, Coal Burns, and Hydrothermal Deposits.
MISSING :15 pages
The Bureau of Mines conducted this research to determine the feasibility of using soil redox measurements, a relatively new method in mining geophysics, to locate or define a variety of conditions that are hazardous or otherwise of interest to the mining industry. The method was used in three widely separated areas in an attempt to define subsurface concentrations of methane, the edges of coal-burn areas, and a hydrothermal vein set. Both a description of the method used and test cases are given in this report.
