Physical and Chemical Properties of the Petroleums of the San Joaquin Valley of California

Description: From Introduction: "This bulletin is the second report so far published and deals primarily with the large oil fields of the San Joaquin Valley of California. The work will be continued as rapidly as possible, and will include all of the more important petroleum districts of the United States. The prime object of the investigations was to determine the economic value of the petroleums and natural gases in the United States with especial reference to the supplies in the public lands, and to ascertain how these resources could be utilized in the industries with least waste and greatest efficiency.

Quicksilver Deposits of the Parkfield District, California

Description: From abstract: The Parkfield district, one of the minor California quicksilver districts, lies on the southern end of the Diablo Range, in the southeastern part of Monterey County and the westernmost tip of Kings County. (...) Two geologically similar areas, separated by 10 miles of unmineralized rocks, have been mapped. These areas contain (1) sedimentary, volcanic, and metamorphic rocks belonging to the Franciscan formation, of probable Jurassic age, (2) sedimentary rocks of Cretaceous age, (3) a few outcrops of fossiliferous strata assigned to the Temblor formation, of middle Miocene age, (4) large masses of serpentine emplaced along fault zones in post-Miocene time, (5) lenses of silica-carbonate rock formed by the alteration of the serpentine, and (6) large areas of landslide.

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."
