Modification of the Colony Tower for the RIO BLANCO detonation

Description: The tower is a 180-ft tall steel-frame experimental oil shale processing retort structure with heavy process equipment on various levels. The structural response of the tower to the ground motion from Project Rio Blanco is analyzed and the necessary structural modifications described. (TFD)

In-place leaching of primary sulfide ores: laboratory leaching data and kinetics model

Description: From AIME solution mining symposinm; Dallas, Texas, USA (Feb 1974). Experimental results obtained in laboratory leaching studies of primary copper sulfide ore in sulfuric acid systems pressurized with oxygen are interpreted by a computerized geometric model involving the movement of a reaction zone through the ore fragments. Physical properties of the ore, including size, shape, and mineral content, are considered. The leaching mechanism involves mixed kinetics and includes a surface reaction within a moving reaction zone plus pore diffusion of dissolved oxygen through the reacted portion of the ore fragment to the reaction zone, The results are applicable to conditions that would exist in nuclear solution mining or simiIar processes in which the ore is converted into rubble and then inundated by a leach solution adequately supplied with oxidants. Experimental results at 90 deg C are correlated with the model, which includes temperature-dependent parameters. (auth)

Project Rio Blanco spall measurements data report

Description: A major instrumentation program was undertaken for the Rio Blanco experiment using accelerometers and velocity gages buried at various depths below the ground surface and at various horizontal ranges from the emplacement well. The objective was to physically measure the depth and aerial extent of spall (tensile failure of the earth material). Data from each of the instrument stations is given, along with the appropriate integrated data for particle velocity and displacement or just displacement. (auth)

Project Rio Blanco definition plan. Additional formation evaluation and production testing

Description: Since the multiple Rio Blanco detonation three reentry wells have been drilled for test purposes: RB-E-01 (Emplacement Well); RB-AR-2 (Alternate Reentry Well); and RB-U-4 (Formation Evaluation Well). Additional testing in all these wells is now required to resolve some remaining technical questions. A plan describing the procedures, methods, responsibilities, and scheduling of the field operations is presented. (TFD)
