Drilling / Hydrofracking

Oil, Water, Gas  

Mining: 

Uranium, Thorium, Radium

Mining and drilling operations for radioactive ore such as Uranium, Thorium, Radium, and Rare Earth requires detection and monitoring of radionuclides..

Drilling for gas or oil using hydrofracking methods also requires radiation monitoring for environmental and worker safety. Fracking rock releases naturally occurring radioactive isotopes such as Radon, Radium-226, Uranium-238, and Thorium-232.

Equipment used for prospecting oil, water, or gas requires the use of radiation detectors for geological evaluation.

US Nuclear Corp has developed specialized instrumentation for deep well drilling, mining, and hydrofracking operations.
