Methods and Costs of Stripping and Mining at the United Verde Open-Pit Mine, Jerome, Arizona

Description: Report issued by the U.S. Bureau of Mines discussing the mining practices and expenses of the United Verde open-pit mine west of Jerome, Arizona. As stated in the introduction, "the purpose of this paper is to present the methods used in developing and operating the mine, and to discuss the problems encountered" (p. 1). This report includes tables, maps, and illustrations.

Results of Preliminary Drilling, Red Rock, Arizona

Description: Abstract: Structure drilling under Contract No. AT(05-l)-120 was begun May 13, 1951, and was suspended June 30, 1951, at Red Rock, Arizona with the completion of 12 holes and 2,390.5 feet of drilling. No mineralization was disclosed in the widely spaced holes. The structure and rock composition was found favorable for a potential drilling area.

Uranium Potential in Precambrian Conglomerates of the Central Arizona Arch: Final Report

Description: From purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine the Precambrian conglomerates of central Arizona in sufficient depth to determine whether they contain any obvious uranium concentrations and whether their geologic environment of deposition was permissive or prohibitive of conditions favoring uranium concentration.

NURE Aerial Gamma-Ray and Magnetic Reconnaissance Survey, [California]-Arizona Area, Volume 1 - Narrative Report: Salton Sea (NI 11-9), Phoenix (NI 12- 7), El Centro (NI 11-12), Ajo (NI 12-10), Lukeville (NH 12-1) Quadrangles

Description: From abstract "As part of the Department of Energy (DoE) National Uranium Resource Evaluation Program, LKB Resources, Inc. has performed a rotary-wing reconnaissance high sensitivity radiometric and magnetic survey, encompassing several 1:250,000 quadrangles in southwestern Arizona and southeastern California. The surveyed area consisted of approximately 9300 line miles. The radiometric data was corrected and normalized to 400 feet terrain clearance. The data was identified as to rock type by correlating the data samples with existing geologic maps. Statistics defining the mean and standard deviation of each rock type are presented as listings in Volume I of this report. The departure of the data from its corresponding mean rock type is computed in terms of standard deviation units and is presented graphically as anomaly maps in Volume II and as computer listings in microfiche form in Volume I."

Phoenix 1° x 2° NTMS Area, California and Arizona: Data Report (Abbreviated)

Description: From abstract: This abbreviated data report presents results of ground water and stream/surface sediment reconnaissance in the National Topographic Map Series (NTMS) Phoenix 10 x 2 quadrangle. Surface sediment samples were collected at 1388 sites, at a target sampling density of one site per 15 square kilometers (6 square miles). Ground water samples were collected at 155 sites. Neutron activation analysis (NAA) results are given for uranium and 16 other elements in sediments, and for uranium and 9 other elements in ground water. Mass spectrometry results are given for helium in ground water. Field measurements and observations are reported for each site. Analytical data and field measurements are presented in tables and maps.

Mineral Investigation of the North End Roadless Area, Cochise County, Arizona

Description: From introduction: During the spring and fall of 1979 the U.S. Bureau of Mines made a mineral investigation of the North End Roadless Area, including a literature search, a search of claim records in the Cochise County courthouse and the State office of the Bureau of Land Management, a search for mining claims and mineralized zones, and examination of known mines and prospects. Local residents and officials of mining companies the U.S. Forest Service, and Arizona State government agencies provided information regarding mining activity and mineral deposits.

Mineral Investigation of the Lime Hills, Narrows, and Sand Cove Wilderness Study Areas, Mohave County, Arizona

Description: From introduction: During 1981 the Bureau of Mines conducted a field investigation of the Bureau of Land Management's Lime Hills, Narrows, and Sand Cove Wilderness Study Areas (WSA's), Mohave County, Arizona as part of a joint effort with the Geological Survey to make a mineral survey of the area. Surface workings and outcrops were examined and samples taken from rock sections that appeared to represent most of the mineralized area. Complete analytical results and sample descriptions are available for public inspection at the Bureau of Mines, Intermountain Field Operations Center, Building 20, Denver Federal Center, Denver, Colo. Part of the area also was examined and sampled in 1979 by L. W. Hamm, Bureau of Mines (Villalobos and Hamm, 1980), during a mineral resource study of the Paiute Primitive Area.
