Preliminary Memorandum on the Trinity Mines, Marysvale, Utah

Description: This report provides results from a preliminary study to determine rock types and alteration products that are responsible for an observed abundance of radioactive gas at the Trinity Gold Mine in Utah. It includes an overview of the study and the location, description of the methods and general statements, details about the structure, petrography and mineralogy, and a discussion of findings.

Catahoula Formation of the Texas Coastal Plain: Depositional Systems, Composition, Structural Development, Ground-Water Flow History, and Uranium Distribution

Description: From objectives: This report describes the physical geology of the Catahoula Formation-its genetic stratigraphy, structure, mineralogical composition, and post-depositional history and discusses the known distribution of uranium within the context of these geological parameters. Emphasis is on definition of primary physical and historical factors affecting the mobilization, transport, and concentration of uranium in the Catahoula Formation.

Evaluation of Uranium Potential in Selected Pennsylvanian and Permian Units and Igneous Rocks in Southwestern and Southern Oklahoma: Final Report

Description: Introduction: The areas of study include parts of the Wichita uplift, Arbuckle uplift, Hunton-Pauls Valley uplift, Central Oklahoma platform, Muenster-Waurika arch, and Anadarko basin (Fig. 1.1-1). Rocks examined include the Precambrian granite of the Arbuckle uplift, Cambrian igneous rocks of the Wichita uplift, and Pennsylvanian-Permian sedimentary rocks derived in large part from those two uplifts and, to a lesser extent, from the Ouachita system.

Video Processing of Remote Sensor Data Applied to Uranium Exploration in Wyoming: Final Report

Description: From introduction: This study is a comprehensive investigation of altered sandstone associated with uranium deposits near Pumpkin Buttes in the Powder River Basin of Wyoming, and the detection of such alteration using remote sensing technology. The purpose of this study is two-fold: 1) to develop video image processing techniques that will preferentially enhance areas of alteration associated with uranium deposits and enable mapping of these areas, and 2) to investigate the spectral, geochemical, and mineralogical characteristics of altered areas which make them detectable on remote sensor data. Once these video processing techniques have been defined, they may be applied as exploration tools to new areas with similar surface and geological environments. In this way, remote sensing can serve as a valuable tool for uranium exploration.

Design of a Groundwater Sampling Network for Minnesota

Description: From introduction: This folio was compiled to facilitate the use of groundwater as a sampling medium to aid in exploration for hitherto undiscovered deposits of uranium in the subsurface rocks of Minnesota. The report consists of the following sheets of the hydrogeologic map of Minnesota: 1) map of bedrock hydrogeology, 2) generalized cross sections of the hydrogeologic map of Minnesota, showing both Quaternary deposits and bedrock, 3) map of waterwells that penetrate Precambrian rocks in Minnesota. A list of these wells, showing locations, names of owners, type of Precambrian aquifers penetrated, lithologic material of the aquifers, and well depths is provided in the appendix to this report.

Uranium in Coal

Description: Introduction: Anticipated uranium requirements of nuclear power plants have prompted many organizations to examine the possibility of recovering uranium from low-grade sources such as shale, phosphate, sea water, and coal. Coal has generated special interest because some uranium was recovered from uranium-bearing carbonaceous rock in the mid-1960s. About 5,000 samples of coal have been analyzed for uranium by the U.S. Geological Survey, U.S. Bureau of Mines, U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, U.S. Energy Research and Development Administration, and numerous state and private agencies.

Uranium Favorability of Tertiary Sedimentary Rocks of the Western Okanogan Highlands and of the Upper Columbia River Valley, Washington

Description: From introduction: This report, one of a series of three reports (Marjaniemi and Robins, 1975a and 1975b) on a study of Tertiary sedimentary rocks in northeastern Washington, presents the results of an investigation of Tertiary sediments of the western Okanogan highlands and upper Columbia River valley. The project was conducted on behalf of the Energy Research and Development Administration (ERDA), formerly the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission.

Uraniferous Phosphate Resources and Technology and Economics of Uranium Recovery From Phosphate Resources, United States and Free World: Volume 1. Uraniferous Phosphate Resources, United States and Free World

Description: From abstract: This report summarizes data of the uraniferous phosphate resources of the United States in detail and of the rest of the Free World more generally (Volume 1). It also evaluates the technical, economic, and environmental feasibility of production of uranium as a by-product, co-product, or single product from the uraniferous phosphate resources (Volume 2).
