Reconnaissance for Uraniferous Lignites in North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, and Wyoming

Description: Report discussing a geological study performed to find uraniferous lignites in North Dakota, Eastern Montana, north-central Wyoming, and northwestern South Dakota. "Deposits of uraniferous lignites were discovered at Blue Buttes, eastern Montana; and at North Cave Hills, South Cave Hills, and at Slim Buttes in northwestern South Dakota."

National Uranium Resource Evaluation: Gillette Quadrangle, Wyoming, South Dakota, and Montana

Description: From Purpose and Scope: "The Gillette 1º x 2º Quadrangle, Wyoming, and South Dakota was evaluated to find volumes of rock considered favorable for uranium deposits and which could contain at least at 100 mt tons U3O8 with an average grade of 0.01 percent U3O8 or more. All geologic environments to a depth of 1,500 m (5,000 ft) evaluated through the use of surface investigations and subsurface information."

Aerial Radiometric and Magnetic Reconnaissance Survey of Portions of Arizona, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, South Dakota and Washington: Final Report, Volume 1. Instrumentation and Methods

Description: From abstract: The objective of the work was to define areas showing surface indications of a generally higher uranium content where detailed exploration for uranium would most likely be successful.

Major Geochemical Processes Related to the Hydrology of the Madison Aquifer System and Associated Rocks in Parts of Montana, South Dakota, and Wyoming

Description: From introduction: The overall purpose of this study were twofold: (1) To determine where greatest yielding wells at shallowest depths would produce water of suitable quality for municipal and industrial supplies; and (2) to determine regional effects of additional water development on the hydrologic system.

Machine-Readable Data Files from the Madison Limestone and Northern Great Plains Regional Aquifer System Analysis Projects, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming

Description: Abstract: This report lists the machine-readable data files developed for the Madison Limestone and Northern Great Plains Regional Aquifer System Analysis (RASA) projects that are stored on magnetic tape and available from the U.S. Geological Survey. Record format, file content, and size are given for: (1) Drill-stem-test data for Paleozoic and Mesozoic formations; (2) geologic data from the Madison Limestone project; (3) data sets used in the regional simulation model; (4) hydraulic-head data for the Lower and Upper Cretaceous aquifers; and (5) geologic data for Mesozoic formations of the Northern Great Plains.

Preliminary Digital Model of Ground-Water Flow in the Madison Group, Powder River Basin and Adjacent Areas, Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Nebraska

Description: Abstract: A digital simulation model was used to analyze regional ground-water flow in the Madison Group aquifer in the Powder River Basin and adjacent areas. Most recharge to the aquifer originates in or near the outcrop areas of the Madison in the Bighorn Mountains and Black Hills , and most discharge occurs through springs and wells. Results from the model calculations indicate that the total flow through the aquifer in the modeled areas was approximately 200 cubic feet per second (5.7 cubic metres per second). The aquifer can probably sustain increased ground-water withdrawals probably would significantly lower the potentiometric surface in the Madison aquifer in a large part of the basin. The digital model could better predict the effects of withdrawals if more accurate estimates of the storage coefficient, transmissivity, and leakance could be obtained.

Bentonite Deposits of the Northern Black Hills District Wyoming, Montana, and South Dakota

Description: From abstract: The northern Black Hills bentonite mining district includes parts of Crook County, Wyo., Carter County, Mont., and Butte County, S. Dak. Within this district, many beds of bentonite occur interspersed with sedimentary strata of Cretaceous age that have an average total thickness of about 3,000 feet and consist chiefly of marine shale, marl, and argillaceous sandstone. The bentonite beds occur in formations ranging upward from the Newcastle sandstone to the lower part of the Mitten black shale member of the Pierre shale. Tertiary (?) and Quaternary deposits of gravel, sand, and silt are present on extensive terraces, and deposits of such materials also extend along stream courses in all parts of the district.

Stratigraphy and Geologic History of the Montana Group and Equivalent Rocks, Montana, Wyoming, and North and South Dakota

Description: From introduction: This is a progress report on regional stratigraphic and paleontologic studies of the Upper Cretaceous Montana Group and equivalent rocks in the northern part of the western interior of the United States. It presents preliminary data on the positions of strandlines during a 14-m.y. (million year) span of the Late Cretaceous as well as our interpretations of the geologic history of this period.

Gravity and Aeromagnetic Studies of the Powder River Basin and Surrounding Areas, Southeastern Montana, Northeastern Wyoming, and Western South Dakota

Description: From abstract: This report contains complete Bouguer anomaly, isostatic residual anomaly, and horizontal gradient anomaly gravity maps of the Powder River Basin and surrounding areas in southeastern Montana, northeastern Wyoming, and western South Dakota were compiled using gravity data from 21,528 stations. A total-intensity anomaly aeromagnetic map with 3 mile spaced east-west flight-lines is also presented. Also included is an analysis of these maps and data, focusing on gravity and aeromagnetic studies.
