Title: Method of assaying uranium with prompt fission and thermal neutron borehole logging adjusted by borehole physical characteristics

Abstract

Uranium formations are assayed by prompt fission neutron logging techniques. The uranium in the formation is proportional to the ratio of epithermal counts to thermal or eqithermal dieaway. Various calibration factors enhance the accuracy of the measurement.
