"was the overall United States term for the development of techniques to use nuclear explosives for peaceful construction purposes."
U.S. Gov Printing Office report on Operation Plowshare:
"Possible excavation applications included: canals, harbors, highway and railroad cuts through mountains, open pit mining, construction of dams, and other quarry and construction-related projects. Underground nuclear explosion applications included: stimulation of natural gas production, preparation of leachable ore bodies for in situ leaching, creation of underground zones of fractured oil shale for in situ retorting, and formation of underground natural gas and petroleum storage reservoirs."
Evidence suggests OPERATION PLOWSHARE has been renewed.
Is the Military-Industrial Complex using Nuclear Explosives to access Arctic Oil Reserves?
Sorry, but the links to the original seismic images at USGS.gov and "Natural Resources Canada" were removed by them.
