Buried Valley of the Susquehanna River: Anthracite Region of Pennsylvania

Description: Report issued by the U.S. Bureau of Mines regarding a buried valley area (a deposit of clay, sand, and gravel) around the Susquehanna River in the anthracite region of Pennsylvania, near the city of Wilkes-Barre. According the the introduction, "The purpose of this report is to furnish data on the buried valley of the Susquehanna River that will be useful in solving the anthracite mine-water problem" and "This report (a) discusses the physical characteristics and the influence of the buried valley of the Susquehanna River on anthracite mining in the Wyoming Valley area of the Northern field, (b) correlates pertinent data relating to the buried valley, (c) presents accurate contour maps showing the position of the top of solid rock underlying the water-soaked valley-fill deposits in the buried valley, and (d) presents cross sections at regular intervals across the buried valley showing the irregularities in trend and bottom as well as the thickness, configuration, and nature of the materials composing the water-bearing valley-fill deposits" (p. 3).

Carbonizing Properties: Pocahontas Number 6, Davy Sewell, and Fire Creek Coals from West Virginia and Upper and Lower Kittanning and Upper and Lower Freeport Coals from Pennsylvania

Description: From Forward: "The value of this survey of the carbonizing properties of American coals by a standard method lies in the comparability of the results on different coals. It must recognized that no standard laboratory method of carbonization, even on a large unit, can yield results that exactly duplicate those obtained in ovens and retorts. The commercial results vary with the type of oven or retort. Allowance must be made for such differences in interpreting the BM-AGA test results in terms of commercial plants."

Comparison of BM-AGA and Slot-Oven Experimental Methods of Carbonization, with Results for Eleven Coals

Description: From Introduction and Summary: "However, with the completion and satisfactory performance of an experimental vertical slot oven of 500-pound capacity at the University of Illinois Geological Survey Laboratory, the opportunity to directly compare BM-AGA coke with coke made by two-sided heating became available and the necessary test apparatus was installed. This report compares the results obtained by the two methods."

Inundated Anthracite Reserves: Eastern Middle Field of Pennsylvania

Description: From Scope of Report: "In this report one major unwatering project was developed. Three pools that inundate considerable tonnages of anthracite reserves are close enough together to be unwatered by some centralized system. Three alternative plans were studied to estimate the cost of each."

Preliminary Notes on the 1951-52 Investigations of the Thomas Range Fluorite District, Juab County, Utah

Description: From page 3: Uraniferous fluorspar pipes cut Paleozoic dolomite in the western part of the Thomas Range, along a ridge known locally as "Spor's Mountain". The fluorspar district (fig. 1) is approximately 50 miles northwest of Delta, Utah, and is in Tps. 12, 13 N., R. 12 W., Salt Lake principal meridian. From July to September 1952 approximately 10 man-months were spent in the district. During this time, field work started in 1951 was completed. Mapping and sampling the fluorspar deposits was done in 1950 (reported in TEI-136). The entire uraniferous fluorspar district has now been mapped at a scale of 1 inch to 1, 000 feet, the complete stratigraphic section of the district has been measured in detail, and additional mine mapping and sampling has been done.
