ABSTRACT
The article deals with topical issues of applying the prompt fission neutron logging progressive method to the ores of stratified infiltration uranium deposits. As an example, the method is assessed on data collected from the Chu Sarysu ore province. Exogenous infiltration-type uranium deposits are currently used as a mineral and resource base for uranium production in Kazakhstan. Stratified infiltration deposits provide more than a third of global uranium supplies. In the 2000s, the Republic of Kazakhstan began developing a series of major stratified infiltration ore deposits in the Chu-Sarysu province, establishing the republic as the world leader in uranium production.

Keywords:well logging, prompt fission neutron logging, uranium deposits, stratified infiltration ore deposits, areas with stratified oxidation, radioactive equilibrium factor.
