Radioactivity in Some Oil Fields of Southeastern Kansas

Description: From abstract: Radium-bearing precipitates derived from 'oil-well fluids have been found in more than 60 oil and gas fields in Cowley, Butler, Marion, Sedgwick, and Greenwood Counties of southeastern Kansas. The abnormal radioactivity of these precipitates has been studied through the use of gamma-ray and sample logs; by radiometric, chemical petrographic, and spectrographic analyses of the precipitates and drill samples; and through the use of chemical analyses of brines collected from oil wells in the areas of high radioactivity.

Radioactive Fluorite in the Thomas Range, Juab County, Utah

Description: From abstract: The Thomas Range fluorite district, on Spor's Mountain in the western part of the Thomas Range, Juab County, Utah, is approximately 6 miles long and 2 miles wide, and contains almost no unclaimed land. The fluorite production of the district, since its discovery in 1943, has been 35,700 short tons. It was obtained from 12 different ore bodies on eight different properties. G. P. Spor, Ray Spor, and Chad Spor; Albert Willden and Earl Willden; T. A. Claridge; and W. E. Black and F. B. Chesley were the only groups producing fluorite in the district in August 1950.

Regional Geophysical Investigations of the Uravan Area, Colorado

Description: From introduction: Geophysical surveys have been made in the Uravan area, in southwest Colorado, with the aim of providing information on regional geology, especially on those aspects that may not be apparent from surface evidence alone. Aeromagnetic surveys were made in 1952, and regional gravity surveys were made during the summers of 1953 and 1954. Figure 1 shows the area covered. Information on surface geology was obtained from publications, from geologists working on the Colorado Plateau, and from personal observations.

Geology and Uranium Deposits of Part of the Browns Park Formation, Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah: a Preliminary Report

Description: From abstract: Uranium deposits and radioactivity anomalies have been found in the eastern half of the area underlain by the Browns Park formation in northwestern Colorado, south-central Wyoming, and northeastern Utah. The deposits are in eolian, lacustrine, and fluvial sandstones, tuffaceous sandstones, and limestones all of which were deposited on two converging pediments during Miocene time. At least one eastern and one western facies of lacustrine and fluvial sedimentary rocks are separated by a belt of eolian sandstones. The faces may be distinguished in the field and by petrographic and heavy-mineral studies in the laboratory.

Preliminary Report on the Rimini Area, Jefferson City Quadrangle, Jefferson County and Lewis and Clark County, Montana

Description: Abstract: A number of radioactivity anomalies and secondary uranium minerals have been found in the Rimini area near the northwestern margin of the Boulder batholith. Most of the anomalies are associated with chalcedonic vein zones that consist of one or more veins of cryptocrystalline and fine-grained quartz in silicified quartz monzonite and alaskite. Seventeen of the anomalies were found along veins that contain base and precious metals; nine were along veins in the vicinity of the village of Rimini from which there has been production of lead, silver, zinc, and gold.

Uranium-Bearing Sandstone in the White River Badlands, Pennington County, South Dakota

Description: From abstract: The uranium mineral uranocircite, a barium uranyl phosphate, occurs in a sandstone channel in the Chadron formation of Oligocene age in the White River Badlands, Pennington County, S. Dak. A vertical section of the basal 1-foot of the channel contains 0. 25 percent uranium. There are also small amounts of metatyuyamunite (?) in the upper part of a freshwater lime stone bed in the Chadron formation and carnotite in chalcedony veins in the overlying Brule formation, also of Oligocene age.

Reconnaissance for Radioactive Minerals in Washington, Idaho, and Western Montana, 1952-1955

Description: From abstract: Approximately fifty radioactive deposits and nearly fifty properties not abnormally radioactive were examined during a geologic reconnaissance for radioactive minerals in Idaho, Washington, and western Montana during the period July 1952 -- June 1955. The most important uranium deposits are in or near granitic to quartz monzonitic intrusions of probable Cretaceous age in central and northern Idaho, westernmost Montana, and northeastern Washington.

Uranium Series Disequilibrium in Radioactive Ores

Description: From introduction: The purposes of this paper are to tabulate and discuss the results of a number of complete disequilibrium analyses, to illustrate a proposed classification of disequilibrium patterns, to study these disequilibria as clues to the understanding of the geochemical history of the samples and of the deposits, and to point out some of the difficulties when simply comparing radioactivity and chemical uranium assays for interpreting equilibrium or disequilibrium in samples.

Geologic Summary of the San Juan Basin, New Mexico, with Reference to Disposal of Liquid Radioactive Waste

Description: From introduction: Approximately fifty radioactive deposits and nearly fifty properties not abnormally radioactive were examined during a geologic reconnaissance for radioactive minerals in Idaho, Washington, and western Montana during the period July 1952 -- June 1955. The most important uranium deposits are in or near granitic to quartz monzonitic intrusions of probable Cretaceous age in central and northern Idaho, westernmost Montana, and northeastern Washington. The purpose of these reports is to describe the geology of the areas so that the possibilities for the disposal of high-level radioactive fluid waste in deep wells can be ascertained.

Uranium Occurrences on the Merry Widow Claim, White Signal District, Grant County, New Mexico

Description: From abstract: The Merry Widow claim is near the center of sec. 22, T. 20 S., R, 15 W, New Mexico principal meridian, about 1 mile west of White Signal, Grant County, N. Mex. Secondary uranium minerals were discovered in the White Signal district in the early 1920's although several mines in the district had been worked previously for gold, silver, and copper. The writers mapped the Merry Widow claim in 1950, collected 133 samples, and logged the core from one diamond-drill hole on the Merry Widow claim.

Results of Core Drilling of Uranium-Bearing Lignite Deposits in Harding and Perkins Counties, South Dakota, and Bowman County, North Dakota

Description: Purpose: The main objective of the Dakota core drilling program was to determine reserves of uraniferous lignite based on chemical uranium and spectrographic determinations from unweathered samples, particularly from those areas where surface sampling of the beds during the previous field season indicated that significant deposits of uranium-bearing lignite might be present. A secondary objective was to obtain fresh samples and to measure the radioactivity of the overlying Oligocene White River and Miocene Arikaree formations from which the uranium in lignite is believed to have been derived.

Relation of Uranium to Hypogene Mineral Zoning in the Front Range Mineral Belt, Colorado

Description: From abstract: Many of the mining districts of the Colorado Front Range mineral belt contain mesothermal sulfide ores that exhibit a zonal distribution. Present data indicate that in most of the zoned districts pitchblende and/or secondary uranium minerals are most abundant in a transition zone between central areas containing predominantly pyritic gold ores and peripheral areas containing dominantly lead-zinc-silver deposits. Copper in the form of chalcopyrite is also probably more abundant in the transition zone than in adjacent zones.

Engineering Geology Bearing on Harbor Site Selection Along the Northwest Coast of Alaska from Nome to Point Barrow

Description: From abstract: This report describes geologic and oceanographic factors relevant to the selection of a site in northwestern Alaska, at which an experimental harbor can be created by the explosion of a nuclear device. Part I describes the results of a preliminary survey of the entire coastal and offshore region between Nome and Point Barrow: Part II consists of a more detailed evaluation of the Cape Thompson-Cape Seppings area; and Part III is a theoretical consideration of the effect of the ocean upon the temperature and distribution of permafrost. The report is based entirely upon the study of published and unpublished reports, field notes, and maps, interviews with the few geologists who have visited the region, and the interpretation of aerial photographs.
