Keywords: gamma-ray logging, automated interpretation, infiltration uranium mine fields, in situ underground leaching
Аnnotation: The analysis of existing algorithm of automated quantitative interpretation for gamma-ray logging data is given for the purpose of identification the reasons of systematic understating of extractable reserves on the infiltration uranium mine fields, which exploited with using in situ leaching method. The necessity of morphological join of balance ore intersection in the united intervals which are subject to extraction in the common acidulation contour is shown. The algorithm of the additional computing procedures to form the united ore intervals based on morphological and geotechnological parameters for increasing the accuracy of definition of the extractable uranium reserves is offered.
