Fu Liangkui(Beijing Graduate School, Wuhan College of Geology)
The present paper describes the basic principles of Petrosonde technique in exploration for structures and mineral deposits, explains the function and perfor- mance of the petro-sonde instrument developed by U.S. Geophysics Internation- al Corporation, and makes a. rather detailed report on the result of petro-sonde test performed in several exploration areas of China last year. Based on an analysis of the measured results by petro-sonde technique in such locations as the Kailuan coal mine, the Renqiu oil field in North China and a hydrologic hole in the suburbs of Beijing, in comparison with the drilling data available, the author gives a review on the application result of this technique. While affirming its effectiveness, he also points out its limitation in application.
