Evaluated Neutron Cross Sections for Tritium

Description: From foreword: Evaluation of the experimental data on the light isotopes, hydrogen through beryllium, was initiated by LASL in mid-1963. Since the data compilations available were completely inadequate for the task at hand, the tedious program of compiling and plotting was undertaken. As the work progressed an attempt was made to eliminate many of the obvious errors and inconsistencies found in the literature and existing compilations.

Multivariate Statistical Analysis of Stream Sediments for Mineral Resources from the Craig NTMS Quadrangle, Colorado

Description: Abstract: Multivariate statistical analyses were carried out on Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance data from the Craig quadrangle, Colorado, to support the National Uranium Resource Evaluation and to evaluate strategic or other important commercial mineral resources. A few areas for favorable uranium mineralization are suggested for parts of the Wyoming Basin, Park Range, and Gore Range. Six potential source rocks for uranium are postulated based on factor score mapping. Vanadium in stream sediments is suggested as a pathfinder for carnotite-type mineralization. A probable northwest trend of lead-zinc-copper mineralization associated with Tertiary intrusions is suggested. A few locations are mapped where copper is associated with cobalt. Concentrations of placer sands containing rare earth elements, probably of commercial value, are indicated for parts of the Sand Wash Basin.

NURE Hydrogeochemical Stream Sediment Data Release for Pilot Study Samples From Portions of the Sterling and Greeley NTMS Quadrangles, Colorado

Description: From summary: This data release presents analytical results obtained for a pilot study being done in portions of the Sterling and Greeley, Colorado, National Topographic Map Series (NTMS) quadrangles (Fig. 1) by the University of Colorado under contract to the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (LASL) as part of the nationwide Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance (HSSR).

Raw Data Report of Elemental Analyses from Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Samples Taken Near Sterling and Fort Morgan, Northeastern Colorado, December 1976 and January 1977

Description: From summary: The University of Colorado, under contract with the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (LASL), is currently performing an evaluation of geochemical relationships of water and sediments and seasonal variations to uranium for the South Platte drainage of northeastern Colorado. As a preliminary part of this study, samples were collected from 125 sites near Sterling and Fort Morgan, Colorado, during the period from December 20, 1976, to January 15, 1977. During this period the weather in the area was clear to partly cloudy, with daytime temperatures ranging from -12 to 12 C. Only a trace of precipitation, in the form of very light snow flurries, occurred during the sampling period. The sample site locations and numbers (the first two digits have been omitted) are shown on Plate I.

Results of Elemental Analyses of Water and Waterborne Sediment Samples from the Proposed Cape Krusenstern National Monument, Alaska

Description: From abstract: During July-August 1976, water and sediments were collected for the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory from streams and lakes over an area of -100 000 km2 around Kotzebue, Alaska. The sampling was by helicopter, as part of the NURE Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance (HSSR) sponsored by the US ERDA. It was done according to rigorous, but simple, written procedures, at a nominal density of one location per 23 km 2, and included the 1400- to 1900-km2 area proposed for the Cape Krusenstern National Monument. All the samples would normally have been analyzed for uranium and presented in a regular HSSR report. However, due to an interest in the proposed Monument area, the Anchorage office of the Department of Interior, Bureau of Mines, provided funds for multielement analyses on the sediments taken from there. Consequently, in addition to the routine field data and uranium determinations for waters and/or sediments from 89 locations sampled over the proposed Cape Krusenstern Monument, the results of analyses of 44 additional elements in 77 of the sediments from there are provided. Sample locations are shown on a 1:250 000-scale plate. The data and descriptions of the methods used are in appendices.

Uranium Concentrations in Stream Waters and Sediments from Selected Sites in the Eastern Seward Peninsula, Koyukuk, and Charley River Areas, and Across South-Central Alaska

Description: During the summer of 1975, the Alaska Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) conducted a 6-week reconnaissance in widespread areas of Alaska as part of the National Uranium Resource Evaluation (NURE) program sponsored by the Department of Energy (DOE). Water, stream sediment, and bedrock samples were taken from the eastern Seward Peninsula, from north of Koyukuk River, from the Charley River area, and from across south-central Alaska, to aid in determining the uranium potential of the state.
