Description

The Savannah River Laboratory (SRL) was involved in the National Uranium Resource Evaluation (NURE) program from 1974 through 1981. The SRL role was to design, conduct, and report the data from a geochemical reconnaissance of almost half the continental United States. The purpose of this work was to provide a basis for evaluating the uranium potential of areas and to identify areas meriting conventional geological followup. In this program over 275,000 samples of stream sediment, soil vegetation, and ground or surface water were collected. As a part of the development program to support interpretation of the geochemical data, SRL conducted ... continued below

Description

The Savannah River Laboratory (SRL) was involved in the National Uranium Resource Evaluation (NURE) program from 1974 through 1981. The SRL role was to design, conduct, and report the data from a geochemical reconnaissance of almost half the continental United States. The purpose of this work was to provide a basis for evaluating the uranium potential of areas and to identify areas meriting conventional geological followup. In this program over 275,000 samples of stream sediment, soil vegetation, and ground or surface water were collected. As a part of the development program to support interpretation of the geochemical data, SRL conducted a series of anomaly verification field studies. Each study area was chosen on the basis of a geochemical anomaly in reconnaissance data. Subcontractors were selected to conduct field scintillometer surveys, compile geologic maps, collect additional samples, or provide other services as deemed appropriate for a given study. This report, which summarizes the results of a study in the Spartanburg 1/sup 0/ x 2/sup 0/ quadrangle, was compiled for SRL by Jerry Owen and is published as a facsimile of this report to SRL. Normal editing was not done so that the report could be placed in the public domain prior to the termination of the NURE program. This study is one of a series designed to provide a basis for interpretation of SRL regional geochemical reconnaissance data. It contains a synthesis of published data and results of a four-channel gamma spectrometer survey of an area near Pacolet Mills, South Carolina.
