Petroleum Geology of Libya

Libya has the biggest petroleum reserves of any nation in Africa and because creation all started in 1961 over 20 billion barrels of oil were produced. Libya is scheduled to arrive the mid-point of depletion of reserves in 2001 and this offers a well timed aspect at which to study the nation of petroleum exploration in Libya.

Uranium frenzy: saga of the nuclear west

Now accelerated to incorporate the tale of nuclear trying out and its outcomes, Uranium Frenzy has develop into the vintage account of the uranium rush that gripped the Colorado Plateau zone within the Fifties. Instigated by way of the U. S. government's want for uranium to gas its becoming atomic guns software, inspired through Charlie Steen's profitable Mi Vida strike in 1952, manned via rookie prospectors from all walks of lifestyles, and pushed to a fever pitch by means of penny inventory promotions, the increase created a colourful period within the 4 Corners area and Salt Lake urban (where the inventory frenzy was once situated) yet eventually went bust.

Petroleum Geoscience

Petroleum Geoscience is a entire creation to the applying of geology and geophysics to the quest for and construction of oil and gasoline. Uniquely, this publication is established to mirror the sequential and cyclical procedures of exploration, appraisal, improvement and construction. Chapters devoted to every one of those points are extra illustrated by means of case histories drawn from the authors reports.

These depressants were extensively examined on copper oxide ores from the Nchanga mine in Zambia. 6 shows the grade–recovery relationship using different depressant combina­ tions. Depressants 3XD and 2MD have shown excellent gangue depression. The presence of clay in the ore has a detrimental effect on copper oxide flotation. Results from experimental development test conducted on various clay containing ore types using AQ depressants showed that in the presence of these depressants, the results improved markedly using the sulphidization flotation method.

7) usually appears in small quantities together with malachite in a number of deposits in Zambia and Congo. From plant and laboratory data, azurite has similar flotation properties as malachite. 8) is common to the Atacoma desert in Chile, for which this mineral was named. As an individual mineral, it does not have any significant economic value. No data on the floatability of this mineral are known. 4) is the most studied mineral of all the oxide minerals. Extensive laboratory studies have been conducted by numerous researchers [9–11].
