«Institute of geophysics and problems of Earth» (further «Institute») has conducted in the period from 23 to February, 27, 2009 on territory of the state UTAH, USA, practical demonstration of innovative geophysical technology of search and survey of m

«DEEP VISION» trials in the Utah State, USA

Institute of Geophysics and Problems of Earth has conducted a practical test of innovative geophysical technology of search and prospecting of minerals called "Deep Vision" in the state of Utah, USA from 23rd to 27th February, 2009. The specification statement of routine of trial course is resulted in the document «Procedure». The results of demonstration of technology «Deep Vision» were recorded in the document "FINAL REPORT оn Presentation-Demonstration of «Deep Vision» Model".

The following persons took part in the presentation-demonstration of the «Deep Vision»:

-       Kelly Alvey, official opponent, who presented data of inspected objects,

-       scientists of the Institute (three experts with a complete set of the field equipment),

-       John H. McBride, professor of geology at the Bringham Young University (BYU) university of the Utah State,

-       R. William Keach II, professor at «BYU» university of the Utah State,

-       Phillip Babcock, representative of Governmental Department of water resources of the UTAH State,

-       Vasil Lyubarets, president of the «CARPATHIA» company ,USA,

-       Jeffrey Bahr, representative of «MVA» oil producing company,

-       Jeffrey Chivers, representative of oil producing company,

-       R.E. «Rusty» Butler, president of «UTAH Consular Corp.», doctor of physics,

-       E. Goryunova, vice-president of the Commercial and Industrial Chamber, Salt Lake City - an arbiter of the testing,

-       Rex W. Hardy, lawyer, and also other specialists and representatives of the press.

5 previously unknown underground objects were consecutively inspected directly on locality by experts of the Institute located under drill holes and oil-producing equipment. Control objects were situated on territory the total area of which had more than 3 thousand sq. km.

As a result of survey we had detected the following control indices: presence of oil and gas deposits, amount of horizons in them, occurrence depths of horizons and their thickness. Information obtained by us during survey, was recorded and presented to the members of commission and officially compared with information of the arbiter.

Comparison of the information has shown 100 % match of the results of the survey, conducted with the help of the «Deep Vision» technology and drilling results(the information is recorded in the progress reports: Report 0, Report 1, Report 9.1, Report 9.2 and FINAL REPORT).

An exception was only the information on 2nd horizon of the fifth object where divergence of information made only 1.5 % at occurrence depth more than 9500 feet.

Thus, practical demonstration of possibilities of the «Deep Vision» technology on the real objects has shown its extraordinarily high efficiency (within the limits of 98 % - 100%),  which exceeds that of 3D-seismography (≈50%) and also high operationability of works.

The works on the given technology were carried out virtually in all places on the globe and also have proved the high efficiency.
