kISMET Final Report and Highlights

Abstract

The files in this submission describes the results of a series of stress measurement and hydraulic fracturing experiments conducted at the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) in Lead, SD. This report describes the accomplishments of the kISMET (permeability (k) and Induced Seismicity Management for Energy Technologies) project. Five near-vertical boreholes were drilled and cored on the 4850 level of SURF in phyllite of the Precambrian Poorman Formation, and a series of hydraulic fracture experiments and stress measurements were conducted in the central borehole: the outer boreholes were used for monitoring purposes.
