  • Chinese researchers use muons imaging technology to detect mine structure
  • Muons have high penetration capability for non-contact, deep imaging

Chinese researchers have successfully utilized muons imaging technology to detect the internal structure of mineral deposits, offering a new method for mineral exploration and geological structure imaging. Traditional exploration techniques are costly and inaccurate, but muons have the ability to penetrate deeply and provide non-destructive imaging of large objects. This technology is expected to revolutionize mineral resource development by reducing costs, risks, and environmental damage. The research team developed detection equipment with independent intellectual property rights and achieved promising results in a gold mine in Gansu province. The imaging results revealed gold veins, goaf areas, and geological structures, showcasing the effectiveness of muons imaging technology in mineral exploration.
