Uranium exploration usually involves slim-hole coring and wireline measurements. This particular property was a candidate for in-situ leach mining, so we brought in a major logging vendor for comparison of porosity tools.
The above tableau (an analog logging van, a digital recording truck, a derrick truck, three logging engineers and three operators) is what resulted for a 900 ft corehole. Much to everyone's relief, the slim-hole logging vendor's porosity tool results agreed very well with those of the major logging vendor.
The major logging vendor tied up all of that equipment and personnel for a week. The client was upset with the $1,500 logging charge for three coreholes and need to ream out the coreholes to accommodate the major logging vendor's tools.
Needless to say, I sent a flowery thank you note to the major logging vendor operations manager with a cc to the client's sister oil & gas E&P company Petrophysicist.
I doubt very much that the major logging vendor became involved in this exercise for the income from this particular job.
