the use of helium in mineral exploration

Scientists Found a Huge Reservoir of Much-Needed Helium

Jun 28, 2016 · Helium is usually found by accident during searches for natural gas. But this time, the team used a new exploration approach that combines geochemistry with seismic imaging of volcanic structures to look specifically for helium. Their work paid off They discovered a cache of up to 54 billion cubic feet of the gas.

Jul 03, 2016 · World's helium problem may have just gotten solved. Helium is indeed extracted from natural gas through condensation, and the rise of LNG could mean a rise in helium production. However, these are small amounts of helium that are extracted from natural gas and any significant rise in natural gas liquefaction needs to be economically justifiable.

Investing in Helium How to Invest in Helium Element

Investing in Helium. Helium is a noble gas. It is lighter than air, and often used in airships and balloons because it is not flammable like hydrogen. Even though it is the second most abundant element in the universe, the concentration in the atmosphere is very low because most of it escapes into space.
