Description

From Purpose and Scope: "The Wells 2º Quadrangle, Nevada, Utah, and Idaho (Fig. 1), was evaluated to identify and delineate areas and geologic environments that exhibit characteristics favorable for the occurrence of uranium deposits. All geologic environments in the quadrangle were evaluated to a depth of 1500 m (5,000 ft) using all available surface and subsurface data."

Notes

Abstract: The Wells 2° Quadrangle, Nevada, Idaho, and Utah, was evaluated using National Uranium Resource Evaluation criteria to delineate areas favorable for uranium deposits. Our investigation has resulted in the delineation of areas that contain Tertiary sedimentary rocks favorable for hydroallogenic deposits in the Mountain City area (Favorable Area A) and in the Oxley Peak area north of Wells (Favorable Area B). Environments considered to be unfavorable for uranium deposits include Tertiary felsic volcanic, felsic plutonic, intermediate to mafic volcanic, Paleozoic and Mesozoic sedimentary rocks, Precambrian rocks, and most Tertiary sedimentary rocks located outside the favorable areas. Present-day basins are unevaluated environments because of a paucity of adequate outcrop and subsurface data. However, the scarce data indicate that some characteristics favorable for uranium deposits are present in the Susie Creek--Tule Valley--Wild Horse basin, the Contact--Granite Range--Tijuana John stocks area, the Charleston Reservoir area, and the Wells--Marys River basin.
