Preparation of Briquettes on the Basis of Sub-Standard Coal of Kazakhstan Fields

A technology of briquetting of sub-standard coal of Kazakhstan fields to obtain high-quality briquetting fuel has been developed. A modifying additive in the form of oil residues has been selected, that make it possible to obtain a binder composition for brown coal briquetting. The material for the preparation of coal briquettes is coal fines from dry, poorly sintered coals, which cannot be used for direct combustion in the furnace. The optimal parameters for obtaining high-quality fuel briquettes have been determined.

Application of geoelectric and remote sensing methods for ore mineral resources prospecting

On detection of gas accumulations in dense sandstones with mobile geophysical methods

Purpose. The results of the application of frequency-resonance technology of remote sensing (RS) data processing and interpretation and geoelectric methods of forming short-pulsed electromagnetic field (FSPEF) and vertical electric-resonance sounding (VERS) for gas accumulations searching in tight sandstones of Dnieper-Donetsk basin (DDB) are analyzed. Design/methodology/approach.

Estimation of hydrocarbon potential of the perspective structures in Barents sea

Purpose. The results of the hydrocarbon (HC) potential assessment of some structures and fields in Barents Sea by the frequency resonance method of the remote sensing (RS) data processing and interpretation are discussed. Design/methodology/approach. Experiments were carried out with the mobile technology of frequency-resonance processing and interpretation of remote sensing data using, which is the "direct" method of mineral deposits exploration and operates within the "substantial" paradigm of geophysical investigations.

Frequency-resonance technology for the remote sensing data processing: the results of approbation on the ore deposits in Australia and south America

Purpose. Analyzing the results of experimental testing and practical application of mobile direct prospecting technology of the remote sensing (RS) data frequency-resonance processing and interpretation (decoding) for "direct" searches of the various types minerals on the ore deposits and prospective areas. Exploratory studies were conducted with its application within ore bearing areas in Australia and Southern America. Design/methodology/approach.
