Major Research Achievements Of 2013

[ 05-13-2015 ]

(1) Research and demonstration application of the modern ICP-AES/ICP-MS in the analysis of ore-forming and associated elements in such important mineralizations as tungsten, iron and copper: The research group has developed new methodologies with the ICP-AES/ICP-MS equipment for tungsten, niobium, tantalum, rare earth, beryllium ore and vanadium ore. This analysis will reduce the detection limits of associated elements in niobium tantalum ore, tungsten ore, beryllium ore, rare earth ore and vanadium-titanium magnetite, and is more convenient, more accurate and faster than traditional methods.

(2) Improvement and test run of the on-site rapid test and detection system The research group established a real-time monitoring system for gas hydrate drilling mud degassing in permafrost. This system is capable of simultaneous monitoring of both hydrocarbon and nonhydrocarbon gases. A portable analysis system for gas chromatographic determination of wellhead free gas was basically developed.

(3) Preparation of first-class reference materials in China In 2013, progress was made in making geological reference materials. The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of China approved 41 geological reference materials in 9 series, accounting for 10% of the total number of the national existing first-class reference materials in the geological sector. Among these geological reference materials, 18 in 5 series were developed by the National Research Center for GeoAnalysis.

(4) Independent development of the on-site test instrument for shale gas content In 2013, this research center completed independent development of an on-site gas-bearing shale gas test instrument. This invention received the national utility model patent, and an application for an invention patent was filed. It has been effectively applied to geological survey of shale gas.
