General and Engineering Geology of the Wray Area, Colorado and Nebraska

Description: From abstract: Most of the formations in the Wray area are fair foundation materials, although good construction materials are scarce. The gravel of the Grand Island formation and the gravels in the Ogallala formation contain large quantities of clay, silt, sand, and calcium carbonate, and have very few pebbles larger than one-half inch in diameter.

Tectonic Map of Western Nebraska and Northwestern Kansas Showing the Distribution of Uranium Occurrences

Description: From introduction: The Cordilleran Foreland (King. 1951, p. 58-62; Horberg and others, 1949, p. 192194) forms a broad north-south belt, parallel to and east of the Cordilleran geanticline (fig. 1), in which the predominant geologic structure is a series of anticlinal mountains and broad asymmetric basins that contrast sharply with the folds and overthrusts related to the Cordilleran geanticline. A tectonic map of most of the Cordilleran Foreland (fig. 2) is being compiled as an aid to study the geologic setting of uranium deposits within the region, and to determine what relationships may exist between the distribution of uranium deposits and the regional tectonic pattern (Osterwald, 1955). The map will show the distribution of faults, uranium deposits, areas of volcanic activity, and crestlines and troughs of folds.

Performance of Relief Wells Along Missouri River Levees: 1951-1952 Floods

Description: "The purpose of this report is to present the results of a study of the performance of the three relief well systems [along the Missouri River] during the July 1951 and April 1952 floods, and to compare their performance with design predictions. [...] The report includes observed uplift and well-flow data, descriptions of relief well operations during the floods, and an analysis of the effectiveness of the well systems together with discussion and comments on several experimental and test wells" (p. 2).

Mineralogy and Stratigraphy of the Lower Part of the Pierre Shale, South Dakota and Nebraska

Description: From abstract and introduction: Mineralogic and stratigraphic studies of the lower part of the Pierre Shale of Late Cretaceous age along the Missouri River indicate correlations different from those generally accepted. The purposes of this paper are to present evidence for the new correlations and to resolve problems of formal nomenclature that result from them.

Preliminary Digital Model of Ground-Water Flow in the Madison Group, Powder River Basin and Adjacent Areas, Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Nebraska

Description: Abstract: A digital simulation model was used to analyze regional ground-water flow in the Madison Group aquifer in the Powder River Basin and adjacent areas. Most recharge to the aquifer originates in or near the outcrop areas of the Madison in the Bighorn Mountains and Black Hills , and most discharge occurs through springs and wells. Results from the model calculations indicate that the total flow through the aquifer in the modeled areas was approximately 200 cubic feet per second (5.7 cubic metres per second). The aquifer can probably sustain increased ground-water withdrawals probably would significantly lower the potentiometric surface in the Madison aquifer in a large part of the basin. The digital model could better predict the effects of withdrawals if more accurate estimates of the storage coefficient, transmissivity, and leakance could be obtained.

Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance Basic Data for Lincoln NTMS Quadrangle, Nebraska; Kansas

Description: From abstract: Results of a reconnaissance geochemical survey of the Lincoln Quadrangle are reported. Field and laboratory data are presented for 577 groundwater and 754 stream sediment samples. Statistical and areal distributions of uranium and possible uranium-related variables are displayed. A generalized geologic map of the survey area is provided, and pertinent geologic factors which may be of significance in evaluating the potential for uranium mineralization are briefly discussed.

Hydraulic Conductivity, Specific Yield, and Pumpage-High Plains Aquifer System, Nebraska

Description: From introduction: This is the second report by U.S. Geological Survey personnel in Nebraska that presents interpretive information for the High Plains aquifer system in the State...This report and the first report are complementary; information from both can be used to compute certain aquifer properties, knowledge of which is essential in the development of a management plan for the aquifer system.

National Uranium Resource Evaluation: Hot Springs Quadrangle, South Dakota and Nebraska

Description: From Introduction: "The Hot Springs Quadrangle covers an area of approximately 18,500 km2 and is in southwestern South Dakota and northwestern Nebraska between latitudes 43º to 44ºN. and longitudes 102º to 104ºW. (Fig. 1). The quadrangle was evaluated at the surface and in the subsurface to a depth of 1500 m to identify geologic environments and delineate areas that exhibit characteristics favorable for uranium deposits."
