Uranium Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance of the Moab NTMS Quadrangle, Utah/Colorado, Including Concentrations of Forty-Three Additional Elements

Description: 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).

Effects of Alterations to Low Gradient Reaches of Utah Streams

Description: This report describes an investigation of the effects of stream channelization on fish and macro-invertebrates in low gradient reaches of Blacksmith Fork River and the Logan River in the floodplain of Cache Valley in northern Utah. Channelization adversely affected both fish and macro-invertebrate populations and biomass, with the severity of impact directly related to the amount and duration of disturbance of the physical habitat.

Interpretation and Evaluation of the Uranium Occurences Near Goodsprings, Nevada: Final Report

Description: Abstract: The uranium occurrences near Goodsprings, Clark Co., Nevada, are divided into two distinct types which differ from each other in geographic distribution, localization of mineralization, mineralogy and origin. None of the known deposits is of present commercial significance and therefore this study emphasizes the genetic rather than the economic aspects.

Uranium in the Dirty Devil Shimarump Channel Deposit

Description: From abstract: Uranium ores occur in a river channel deposit of composite type. Uranium and its daughter elements segregate during migration and each has its own accumulator. The entire deposit stays close to radioactive equilibrium but individual mineral components have departures up to 1000 fold.

Reconnaissance Examinations of Copper Uranium Deposits West of the Colorado River

Description: Several relatively small copper-uranium deposits have been found in southwestern Utah along the contact of the Shinarump and Moenkopi formations of Triassic age, at least from the San Rafael Swell area of Emery County, southward through central and eastern Garfield County, southwestward into western Kane County, and westward into the southern part of Washington County.

Preliminary Memorandum, East Slope Area, Marysvale, Utah

Description: From introduction: Preliminary field data have been assembled as a background for laboratory investigations directed toward interpretation of alteration features in the East Slope area. Such data constitute one of several units which should improve our understanding of the pattern of uranium distribution.

Reconnaissance of the Lower Chinle Along the Colorado River Between the Moab and Dewey Bridges, Grand County, Utah

Description: Abstract: The sandstones and conglomerates contained in the Shinarump conglomerate stratigraphic level in the area along Colorado River between the Moab and Dewey bridges have been assigned to the lower Chinle. One small anomaly was located, but no favorable radioactive areas were found. Gray-green mudstone and siltstone zones and carbonated material are absent.

Uranium-Vanadium Deposits of the Cottonwood Wash Mining Area: San Juan County, Utah

Description: Introduction: This study was made in conjunction with a core drilling program designed to trace ore trends from existing mines eastward under deeper cover. The exploration drilling covered an area of about 1 square mile. The results of previous drilling by the Commission, which covered an additional 10 square miles, have been incorporated in this report.

Relation of Sedimentary Trends Tectonic Features, and Ore Deposits in the Blanding District, San Juan County, Utah: Technical Report for April 1, 1953 to March 31, 1954

Description: Introduction: Under a contract between the United States Atomic Energy Commission and the University of Utah the writer has been investigating the sedimentary relations of the uranium deposits of the Salt Wash sandstone in the Colorado Plateau.

[Marysvale Region Study], Annual Report: June 30, 1953-April 1, 1954, Part 1

Description: First part of an annual report describing studies conducted by researchers at Columbia University to surveyuranium mineralization in the Marysvale, Utah region: "Part I deals with field studies and mineralogical data derived from the laboratory examination of suites collected during the previous summer" (p. 5).

Stratigraphy of the Eocene Part of the Green River Formation in the South-Central Part of the Uinta Basin, Utah

Description: From abstract: Seventeen stratigraphic sections totalling 4,514.3 m were investigated and previous reports studied in order to clarify and illustrate the stratigraphy of most of the Eocene part of the fluvial and lacustrine Green River Formation in the south-central part of the Uinta basin of Utah.

[Evolution of Sedimentary Basins--Paradox Basin: Chapters C and D]

Description: From abstract: The report for document C is about the tectonic trends of the northern part of the Paradox Basin of southeastern Utah and southwestern Colorado, as derived from Landsat multispectral scanner imaging and geophysical and geologic mapping. The report for document D is about an uncontrolled X-band airborn radar-image mosaic that was compiled for the western three-fifths of the Moab 1° x 2° quadrangle of southeastern Utah and southwestern Colorado.

Shorter Contributions to General Geology, 1929

Description: From introduction: This report describes the deposits of analcite in the Green River formation, to compare them with other similar deposits, and to present them with other similar deposits, and to present the observations and inferences that led him to explain them as alteration products of volcanic ash that fell into an ancient saline lake. The report also records the occurrence of several thin beds of sepiolite, or meerschaum, in the Green River formation and presents new data on the molds of saline minerals of the Green River formation whose determination affects directly the interpretation of the analcite and sepiolite deposits.

The Frontier Formation and Associated Rocks of Northeastern Utah and Northwestern Colorado

Description: From abstract: The Frontier Formation of the Mancos Group in northeastern Utah and northwesternmost Colorado (proposed new rank designations; formerly known as the Frontier Sandstone Member of the Mancos Shale) consists of several facies of marine and nonmarine rocks of Late Cretaceous (Turonian) age that grade eastward into totally marine rocks in easternmost Utah and northwestern Colorado.
