PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

From introduction: Our particular interest in the uranium potential of the Proterozoic quartz-pebble and quartzite-pebble conglomerates of the Kingston Peak Formation has been based upon: 1. Known uranium occurrences of low to intermediate grade in a peliticarkosic sulfide-bearing unit near the base of the formation; the "Favorable Submember" of this report. 2. Uranium occurrences and widespread anomalies in underlying Proterozoic granitic-metamorphic rocks, including the World Beater Complex, within and bordering the basin in which the conglomerates were deposited. 3. Reported minor shows of uranium associated with extensive anomalous radioactivity in the conglomerates themselves.
