Search for Radioactive Intrusive Rocks in New Jersey, New York, and New England
Report discussing an investigation of intrusive igneous rocks for radioactivity in New Jersey, New York, and New England during August and September 1951. This was aimed at finding uranium contents of economic significance in these rocks and determining the geological cause for any radioactivity. Results of the investigation are given by region, and a summary is included.
Reconnaissance for Radioactive Materials in Northeastern United States During 1952
The following report covers a reconnaissance for radioactive materials that was made in parts of Maine, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. It's primary objective was to examine the iron ore deposits and associated rocks in Adirondack Mountains of New York and the Highlands of New Jersey. Additionally, several deposits known or reported to contain radioactive minerals were examined to delimit their extent. However, most of the deposits examined are not significant as possible sources of radioactive elements and the data pertaining to them are summarized in tables provided.
Uranium in the Phillips Mine-Camp Smith Area, Putnam and Westchester Counties, New York
Report discussing uranium that was discovered in uraniferous rock in the Phillips mine-Camp Smith area of New York in 1953.
Uranium in the Phillips Mine-Camp Smith Area, Putnam and Westchester Counties, New York
Abstract: Uraniferous rock was discovered in the Phillips mine-Camp Smith area in 1953. Precambrian rocks of the Hudson Highlands of the New England physiographic province underlie the area.

Report discussing reconnaissance for radioactive materials in parts of Maine, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania during 1952. From Abstract: "The primary objective was to examine the iron ore deposits and associated rocks in the Adirondack Mountains of New York and the Highlands of New Jersey."
Reconnaissance of Radioactive Rocks of Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Southeastern New York
Report discussing a 1948 geological examination of 7,662 miles of roadside rocks in Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and southeastern New York to find deposits of radioactive materials.
Reconnaissance of Radioactive Rocks of Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Southeastern New York
From abstract: In 1948, 7,662 miles of roadside rocks and soils in Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and southeastern New York were traversed with a car-mounted Geiger-Mueller counter. The observed distribution of the abnormally radioactive rocks and soils is limited to certain areas, herein called "radioactive provinces," that are separated from each other by areas of essentially nonradioactive rock.
Reconnaissance of Radioactive Rock of the Hudson Valley and Adirondack Mountains, New York
Report discussing a geological examination of 3,750 miles of roads in the Hudson Valley and Adirondack Mountains in eastern and Central New York state to find deposits of radioactive materials. The examination took place in August 1949.
