Evaluation of Brine Desulfating Process As Applied To Desalination Phase 1
Report issued by the Office of Saline Water over studies conducted on the desulfating process at desalination plants. As stated in the introduction, "the explicit purpose of this study is to determine whether or not application of the feed-water desulfating process to the feed to a desalting plant will reduce the overall cost of desalted water" (p. 1). This report includes tables, and illustrations.
Geology of the Green River Mining District, Emery and Grand Counties, Utah
The purpose of this report is to present all pertinent geologic data on an area in which relatively imprtant uranium deposits are present.
Manganese Deposits in the Drum Mountains, Juab and Millard Counties, Utah
From abstract: The Drum Mountains are in west-central Utah 30 miles northwest of Delta, between the Sevier Desert on the east and Whirlwind Valley on the west. It is a typically barren desert range comprising a westward-tilted structural unit in which is exposed as much as 9,000 feet of quartzite (Cambrian and Precambrian?) and 3,000 feet of carbonate rocks of Cambrian age. These beds, which strike northward and dip west, are cut by myriad east- to northeast trending faults with displacements of a few feet to a few thousand feet. Quartz monzonite dikes, pebble dikes, and vein deposits are present locally along the faults. The Cambrian rocks are overlain unconformably by volcanic rocks of probable Tertiary age.
Mining Methods and Techniques Used at the Radon Longwall Operation, Hecla Mining Company, San Juan County, Utah
Report issued by the U.S. Bureau of Mines discussing uranium mining methods. As stated in the introduction, "the Federal Bureau of Mines is publishing a series of studies on the methods and costs of mining uranium on the Colorado Plateau. This report describes the long-wall mining methods and techniques used at the Radon mine, Big Indian district, San Juan County, Utah" (p. 1). This report includes maps, tables, illustrations, photographs.
Ordovician Graptolites of the Basin Ranges in California, Nevada, Utah, and Idaho
From introduction: This report presents a summary of the graptolite faunas of the Basin Ranges as known from the collections of the U.S. Geological Survey and the Departments of Geology of the University of California at Los Angeles and Utah State University. The collections were made in the period 1872-1958, but only a very small number of specimens have been described or illustrated in the 80 or so years elapsed.
Oxidized Zinc Deposits of the United States: Part 2. Utah
From introduction: This report is compiled from fieldwork and available published data on the oxidized zinc deposits of Utah. Most of the deposits were examined by the author during the autumns of 1952-55 as part of a general study of oxidized zinc deposits of the Western States. In addition, several deposits were visited by geologists of the U.S. Geological Survey as a part of mineral investigation studies since 1940. In the process of obtaining this information many mining companies and individuals have been consulted.
Reconnaissance of Titaniferous Sandstone Deposits of Utah, Wyoming, New Mexico, and Colorado
Report issued by the Bureau of Mines over heavy sandstone deposits in the Four-State area of the U.S. Details of the geology and an estimate of resources are presented. This report includes tables, maps, and illustrations.
Tungsten Deposits in Utah
Report issued by the U.S. Bureau of Mines discussing tungsten deposits and mining practices in Utah. As stated in the introduction, "this paper describes the tungsten-bearing areas of Utah, inferred reserves, production practices and problems, and many of the mines" (p. 2). This report includes maps, tables, and illustrations.
United States Earthquakes, 1962
Report discussing earthquake activity in the United States during 1962. The report is broken down by regions and has sections for specific earthquakes.
USAEC Airborne Radiometric Reconnaissance in Arkansas, Colorado, Montana, Texas and Utah, 1952 to 1955
From introduction: This is one of a series of three reports on airborne radioactivity surveys in the United States. The reports contain the 185 airborne anomaly maps issued by the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission as a result of the AEC's aerial surveying program conducted from March 1952 to June 1956; two ground reconnaissance maps of Utah also are included. Most of the reconnaissance was done in the western United States.
