Description: From abstract: Results of an ERDA-sponsored, high-sensitivity, airborne gamma-ray spectrometer and magnetometer survey of a portion of the Delta, Utah, NTMS, 1:250,000 scale quadrangle, carried out under Bendix Field Engineering Corporation Subcontract 76-019-L are discussed. The objective of the survey was to evaluate the Delta area as a uraniferous province, i.e., a region showing surface indications of a generally higher uranium content, and evidence of geochemical uranium enrichment over the other natural radioactive elements, where detailed exploration for uranium would likely be successful. The known presence of late stage Tertiary rhyolites and granites associated with fluorite and uranium occurrences and one productive uranium mine strongly suggested that the area is such a uraniferous province. A DC-3 aircraft equipped with a gamma-ray spectrometer using nine large-volume NaI detectors, two 400 channel analyzers, and ancillary geophysical and electronic equipment was employed for data collection.
