Luo Baowei, Deputy Director General of the Natural Resources Department of Qinghai Province and Deputy Chief Inspector of Natural Resources of Qinghai Province, said in Xining on the 14th that in the past decade, the province has arranged 5034 non oil and gas geological exploration projects, with a capital of 18.123 billion yuan, and 411 million tons of newly proved geological oil reserves and 579 million tons of potassium salt. According to Luo Baowei, centering on geological prospecting, Qinghai Province has made three discoveries, namely, the “Sanxi” metallogenic belt has been found on the northern margin of Qaidam; It is the first time to find continental shale gas with good hydrocarbon generation capacity in Babaoshan area; About 5430 square kilometers of selenium rich soil were found in the eastern Qinghai and Qaidam oasis agricultural areas. At the same time, Qinghai Province has made three breakthroughs in geological prospecting, namely, the exploration of potash resources, the exploration of magmatic divorced nickel deposits in the East Kunlun metallogenic belt, and the exploration of dry hot rocks in the Gonghe Guide basin. Luo Baowei said that in the past ten years, the province has arranged 5034 non oil and gas geological exploration projects, with a capital of 18.123 billion yuan, 211 new ore producing areas and survey bases, and 94 mineral sites available for development; Newly proved geological reserves of oil are 411 million tons, geological reserves of natural gas are 167.8 billion cubic meters, coal is 3.262 billion tons, copper, nickel, lead and zinc are 15.9914 million tons, gold is 423.89 tons, silver is 6713 tons, and potassium salt is 579 million tons. In addition, Zhao Chongying, deputy director of the Geological Exploration Management Office of the Natural Resources Department of Qinghai Province, said that in terms of exploration of important advantageous minerals in Qinghai Province, deep pore brine type potash deposits were found in the west of Qaidam Basin, widening the potash prospecting space; Golmud Xiarihamu super large copper nickel cobalt deposit, becoming the second largest copper nickel deposit in China; The first super large independent silver deposit in Qinghai Province was discovered in the Kangchelgou Valley of Dulan Nageng. In terms of new material mineral exploration, super large crystalline graphite ore was found in Golmud Tola Haihe area. In terms of clean energy mineral exploration, high-temperature rock bodies were drilled in the Gonghe Basin, laying a solid foundation for building a national demonstration base for the exploration, development and utilization of dry hot rocks in China.
