Progress of Surveys in the Anthracite Ridge District Alaska

Description: From abstract: Anthracite Ridge is in south-central Alaska, on the north side of the Matanuska River Valley, about 200 miles north of Seward, the coastal terminus of the Alaska Railroad. The specific object of the investigations in this field during the summer of 1931 was to collect information regarding the character and extent of the anthracite deposits. These studies were carried on in connection with similar intensive studies of deposits of other kinds of minerals throughout the country tributary to the Alaska Railroad.

Progress on Geologic Studies in the Capitol Reef Area, Wayne and Garfield Counties, Utah

Description: From introduction: Objectives of the geologic studies and mapping in this area are: 1) to study and map geologic formations in which uranium ore may be found with special attention given to the Triassic Shinarump conglomerate, 2) to evaluate uranium deposits and to study local controls and habits of ore, 3) to collect and study geologic data basic to an understanding of regional geologic trends or controls in the distribution of the ore deposits, and 4) to determine the favorableness of the area for concealed deposits of uranium. The present report does not attempt to provide answers to all these objectives. Rather, it is a brief explanatory report to accompany the geologic map (fig. 2) and make it available in advance of the final report.

Progress Report on Geologic Studies in the Capitol Reef Area, Wayne County, Utah

Description: From abstract: During 1951 about 60 square miles of the Capitol Reef area, Wayne County, Utah, the northern end of the Waterpocket Fold, was mapped by plane-table methods on a scale of 1:62, 500. Formations, with an approximate aggregate thickness of 3, 200 feet, range from the Coconino sandstone of Permian age to the Navajo sandstone of Jurassic (?) age. About 35 linear miles of Shinarump conglomerate of Triassic age was examined in detail. Cliffs 900 to 1, 000 feet high form the west face of Capitol Reef, which is on the east and northeast flanks of a structural and topographic dome, The uranium deposits are in the basal part of the Shinarump conglomerate. Zippeite and metatorbernite are the uranium minerals found, and are associated with copper minerals, carbonaceous matter, clay beds, a thick bleached zone at the top of the Moenkopi formation, and channels or scours in the top of the Moenkopi. The highest radioactivity is in a clay bed at the base of the Shinarump conglomerate, and was detected at 7 localities between Grand Wash and Capitol Gorge, at the Birch Spring prospect in Moonie Draw, and at the Oyler mine in Grand Wash.

Progress Report on Investigations of Western Phosphate Deposits

Description: From abstract: A comprehensive investigation of the western phosphate deposits, in progress since 1947, involves a study of the Phosphoria and Park City formations over an area of about 135,000 square miles in the states of Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, and Utah0 It was undertaken to acquire more data on the thickness, composition and quality, structure, and distribution of the deposits--data that would help industry select deposits suitable for mining and permit estimation of reserves, evaluation of potential byproduct elements, and establishment of the origin of the deposits.

Progress Report Pebble Bed Reactor Program: June 1, 1959-October 31, 1960

Description: From abstract: This report describes analytical and development work in connection with the Pebble Bed Reactor concept. The principle involved in the reactor is the heating of graphite pebbles by the fission of contained uranium and transfer of the heat generated to helium which is circulated through the permeable bed.

Project AN0115A Annual Report, 1976: Migration of Plutonium and Americium in the Lithosphere

Description: Annual report of Argonne National Laboratory project ANO115A. Abstract: Studies have been carried out on the migration of plutonium and americium in solutions flowing through porous and crushed rock and through fissures. The migration process can be described in terms of the surface absorption of these elements. In addition, chemical effects on the absorption have been observed. One of these effects is possibly due to the presence of a plutonium polymer that migrates at a more rapid rate than normal plutonium.

Project Plan for the Decontamination and Decommissioning of the Argonne National Laboratory Experimental Boiling Water Reactor

Description: In 1956, the Experimental Boiling Water Reactor (EBWR) Facility was first operated at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) as a test reactor to demonstrate the feasibility of operating an integrated power plant using a direct cycle boiling water reactor as a heat source. In 1967, ANL permanently shut down the EBWR and placed it in dry lay-up. This project plan presents the schedule and organization for the decontamination and decommissioning of the EBWR Facility which will allow it to be reused by other ANL scientific research programs. The project total estimated cost is $14.3M and is projected to generate 22,000 cubic feet of low-level radioactive waste which will be disposed of at an approved DOE burial ground. 18 figs., 3 tabs.
