Advances Related to United States and International Mineral Resources: Developing Frameworks and Exploration Technologies

Description: The following report provides information for the public good about the origin, quality, and quantity of mineral resources world-wide. This Bulletin reports progress on some of the current activities of the Office of Mineral Resources and reflects the necessity for an international perspective regarding mineral resources and research technology.

Carbon Dioxide in Mississippian Rocks of the Paradox Basin and Adjacent Areas, Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona

Description: From abstract: This report is about six gas samples that were obtained from the Mississippian Leadville Limestone in the McElmo field, Colorado, and the Lisbon field, Utah. These samples were recorded to contain a high reading of carbon dioxide and the report investigates these results.

Chronology of Late Cretaceous Igneous and Hydrothermal Events at the Golden Sunlight Gold-Silver Breccia Pipe, Southwestern Montana

Description: A report about gold mineralization at the Golden Sunlight breccia pipe, southwestern Montana, is related to emplacement of Late Cretaceous alkali-calcic rhyolite and subsequent collapse of the Belt Supergroup wallrock and rhyolite in the pipe.

Complete Bouguer and Isostatic Residual Gravity Maps of the Anadarko Basin, Wichita Mountains, and Surrounding Areas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, and Colorado

Description: From abstract: This report contains the complete Bouger and isostatic residual gravity maps of the Anadarko basin, Wichita Mountains, and surrounding areas on parts of Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas and Colorado that were compiled using gravity data from 11,023 stations.

[Evolution of Sedimentary Basins/Onshore Oil and Gas Investigations--Santa Maria Province: Chapters W and X]

Description: From abstract: Bulletin W is about the deformation of the Mesozoic Franciscan Complex of the Eastern Santa Maria basin in California. Bulletin X is about the regional thermal maturity of the surface rocks of the mentioned basin as well as the Santa Barbara-Ventura basin area in California.

[Evolution of Sedimentary Basins/Onshore Oil and Gas Investigations--Santa Maria Province: Chapters Y and Z]

Description: From abstract: A complex Neogene history characterizes the offshore Santa Maria basin and the northwest margin of the western Transverse Ranges, California. This history includes the transition from subduction to a transtensional and then transpressional plate boundary, including about 900 of clockwise rotation of the western Transverse Ranges. This report uses seismic reflection data to document the geometry of structures that accommodated this deformation and offshore well data to date and correlate the sediments which were affected by the different tectonic episodes.

[Evolution of Sedimentary Basins--Paradox Basin: Chapters C and D]

Description: From abstract: The report for document C is about the tectonic trends of the northern part of the Paradox Basin of southeastern Utah and southwestern Colorado, as derived from Landsat multispectral scanner imaging and geophysical and geologic mapping. The report for document D is about an uncontrolled X-band airborn radar-image mosaic that was compiled for the western three-fifths of the Moab 1° x 2° quadrangle of southeastern Utah and southwestern Colorado.

[Evolution of Sedimentary Basins--San Juan Basin: Chapters J and K]

Description: From introduction to each respective report: Report J summarizes the results of several studies concerning the stratigraphy and sedimentology of uppermost Jurassic to lowermost Upper Cretaceous rocks in the San Juan basin and adjacent areas. Report K describes using X-ray diffraction techniques to determine the occurrence and distribution of clay minerals in the upper part of the Brushy Basin Member and in the Burro Canyon Formation in the Four Corners area.

Facies Analysis, Genetic Sequences, and Paleogeography of the Lower Part of the Minturn Formation (Middle Pennsylvanian), Southeastern Eagle Basin, Colorado

Description: From abstract: Siliciclastic and minor carbonate rocks of the lower part of the Middle Pennsylvanian Minturn Formation of north-central Colorado were deposited in alluvial-fan, braidplain, Gilbert-delta, shoreline, and paralic, and offshore-marine environments. These strata can be divided into twelve genetic sequences that are generally bounded by transgressive surfaces of erosion or paralic flooding surfaces, and are characterized by thin and thick transgressive units. This report examines the paleogeography of this area.

Fluvial Architecture of the Lower Cretaceous Lakota Formation, Southwestern Flank of the Black Hills Uplift, South Dakota

Description: From introduction This report describes large-scale depositional units referred to as architectural elements, interpreted from outcrops of three distinct fluvial sandstone units of the Lakota Formation in the southwestern Black Hills area of Custer and Fall River Counties, South Dakota. These fluvial deposits formed near the end of an episode of continental deposition that began when the Jurassic Sundance sea regressed from the region and ended when the Early Cretaceous Skull Creek sea encroached from the north in Albian time.

The Frontier Formation and Associated Rocks of Northeastern Utah and Northwestern Colorado

Description: From abstract: The Frontier Formation of the Mancos Group in northeastern Utah and northwesternmost Colorado (proposed new rank designations; formerly known as the Frontier Sandstone Member of the Mancos Shale) consists of several facies of marine and nonmarine rocks of Late Cretaceous (Turonian) age that grade eastward into totally marine rocks in easternmost Utah and northwestern Colorado.
