Multivariate Statistical Analysis of Stream Sediments for Mineral Resources from the Craig NTMS Quadrangle, Colorado
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.
Uranium Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance of the Denver and Greeley NTMS Quadrangles, Colorado

Uranium Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance of the Durango NTMS Quadrangle, Colorado
From introduction: This report describes work done in the Durango National Topographic Map Series (NTMS) quadrangle, Colorado, by the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (LASL) as part of the nationwide Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance (HSSR).
Uranium Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance of the Moab NTMS Quadrangle, Utah/Colorado, Including Concentrations of Forty-Three Additional Elements
Partial abstract: "During the summers of 1976, 1977, and 1978, 442 water and 1755 sediment samples were collected from 1801 locations within the 19 400 km2 area of the Moab quadrangle, Utah and Colorado, by private contractors for the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory. Water samples were collected from streams, springs, and wells; wet and dry sediment samples were collected both from stream channels and from springs. Each water sample was analyzed for 13 elements, including uranium, and each sediment sample was analyzed for 43 elements, including uranium, thorium, and vanadium. All field and analytical data are listed in the appendixes of this report" (p. 1).
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
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.
Uranium Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance in the San Juan Mountains, Southwest Colorado
From 1995 sites in the San Juan Mountains area, 1706 water and 1982 sediment samples were collected during June-July 1976 and analyzed for uranium. The area includes the southern third of the Colorado mineral belt which has yielded rich ores of gold, silver, copper, lead, zinc, and molybdenum. The broadly domed mountains are capped by 2500 m of Tertiary volcanics, deeply eroded to expose a Precambrian crystalline core. Adjacent plateaus underlain by Mesozoic sedimentary rocks were included in the reconnaissance. Average value of uranium in water samples from mountains was less than 0.5 parts per billion, from plateaus was 1-2 parts per billion, from Mancos shale areas exceeded 2 parts per billion. Anomalous sediment samples, 40 ppm uranium, came from near Storm King Mountain and upper Vallecito Creek. Other anomalous areas, including the Lake City mining district, were well defined by 4-30 parts per million uranium in sediment and 3-30 parts per billion uranium in water. Anomalous areas not previously reported indicate favorable areas for future exploration.
