Notes

Abstract: Uranium resources of the Dyersburg Quadrangle, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, and Illinois, were evaluated to a depth of 1500 m using all available surface and subsurface geologic information. Except for the Chattanooga Shale, no uranium occurrences were reported in the literature. A scintillometer survey and a geochemical sampling program (covering ground-water, soil, rock, and well-cutting samples), an Eh-meter and radon gas detector survey of the ground water, and a hydrogeochemical and stream-sediment reconnaissance program were conducted to determine anomalous radioactivity and find uranium occurrences. Information from an aerial radiometric survey was not available for this quadrangle. Areas of favorability in the suubsurface were evaluated using gamma-ray logs, descriptive logs of well-sample cuttings, and published and Geochemex's ground-water data. Two areas of uranium favorability were delineated within the quadrangle. Delineation was based on surface and subsurface data. These areas lie in the fluvial to deltaic facies of the McNairy Sand of Cretaceous age. No uranium occurrences were found within these favorable areas. Geologic units considered unfavorable include all Quaternary, Tertiary, and Cretaceous (except the McNairy Sand) formations, and all Paleozoic rocks extending to the Precambrian basement rocks. An extensive drilling program in the favorable areas is recommended to improve the reliability of this evaluation.
