Uranium-Bearing Coal in the Central Part of the Great Divide Basin, Sweetwater County, Wyoming

Description: From abstract: Field work leading to this report was done by the U. S. Geological Survey for the Division of Raw Materials of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission, Nearly 24 townships were mapped in the central part of the Great Divide Basin, Sweetwater County, Wyoming, Fourteen of these townships contain outcrops of uranium-bearing coal. Thirty coal beds were mapped, but only seven of them have uranium-bearing coal reserves as defined in this report.

Uranium Occurrences in the Ambrosia Lake Area, McKinley County, New Mexico

Description: Introduction: The Ambrosia Lake area includes all of T. 14 N., R. 10 W., and portions of adjacent townships in McKinley County, approximately 20 miles north of Grants, New Mexico (fig. 1). Uranium was discovered in April, 1955, and extensive exploration drilling followed.

Geologic Features of Areas of Abnormal Radioactivity South of Ocala, Marion County, Florida

Description: From abstract: Areas of abnormal radioactivity south of Ocala, Marion County, Fla., discovered in 1953 by aerial survey, were investigated by surface examination and by 10 power auger drill holes. Interbedded clay, clayey sand, and uraniferous phosphorite occur in the areas of anomalous radioactivity. Miocene fossils occur at three localities in these beds which are evidently outliers of Miocene sediments on the Ocala limestone of Eocene age. The preserved outliers are southwest of the main belt of Miocene sediments. The principal uraniferous rocks are clayey, sandy, pellet phosphorite that occurs in beds a few feet thick, and very porous, phosphatic sand rock which makes abundant float at many places. Apatite forms the phosphate pellets in the unweathered phosphorite. The very porous, phosphatic sand rock is the highly leached residuum of the pellet phosphorite and is composed mainly of quartz, kaolinite, wavellite, and crandallite ( pseudowavellite2). It closely resembles the aluminum phosphate rock of the "leached zone" of the Bone Valley formation in the land-pebble phosphate district.

Preliminary Report on Uranium Occurrence, Silver King Claims, Tooele County, Utah

Description: Abstract: Uranium was discovered on the Silver King claims in the fall of 1953. The claims are on the west flank of the Sheeprock Mountains in the eastern part of the Erickson mining district, Tooele County, Utah. Uraninite occurs in north- to northwest-trending copper-nickel-silver bearing fissure veins near the margin of a granitic stock of probable late Tertiary age. Sedimentary rocks in contact with the granite are chiefly dolomite and quartzite of Middle and Upper Ordovician age. Diamond drilling on this property did not disclose significant amounts of uranium; however, encouraging showings have been found by underground exploration by the owner.

Tectonic Map of Eastern Montana Showing the Distribution of Uranium Deposits

Description: From introduction: A tectonic map for the northern part of the Cordilleran Foreland was compiled to aid in establishing the geologic setting of uranium deposits within the region, and to determine what relationships, if any, exist between the distribution of uranium deposits and localities, and the regional tectonic pattern (Osterwald, 1955). The relationships might suggest new areas favorable for the discovery of uranium deposits in the Cordilleran Foreland as well as in other areas with similar tectonic history. The map will show the distribution of crest lines and troughs of folds, faults, uranium deposits and localities, and areas of volcanic activity. Outcrop areas of Precambrian and post-Eocene rocks are shown to designate the relative age of structures. Where possible the Precambrian rocks are subdivided into structural types, so that their influence on younger deformations may be inferred. The map of eastern Montana is one of a series being prepared before the final map is assembled (fig. 1.).

The Wind Variability of Fall-Out Patterns

Description: The following report investigates part of the variability of the computed fall-out intensity patterns due to the variability of the winds, on the basis of winds from four Pacific shot days. An extreme case from Operation Sandstone is also considered.
