Trace Elements Reconnaissance in the Jakolof Bay Area, Southern Alaska

Description: Abstract: "As a result of inquiries by prospectors in 1948 concerning radioactive ores in the vicinity of Jakolof Bay on the Kenai Peninsula in southern Alaska, the Geological Survey conducted a brief investigation during 1949. No radioactive material was found. Possibly a chromite stockpile in this locality was mistaken for pitchblades."

Trace Elements Reconnaissance on the South Fork of Quartz Creek, Northeastern Seward Peninsula, Alaska

Description: Abstract: "Two uranium-bearing minerals, uranothorianite and thorite(?), were found in the stream gravels of the main branch of the South Fork of Quartz Creek, a tributary of the Kiwalik River. Although the bedrock source of the minerals was not located, the radioactive material was traced in slope wash well above the stream gravel. A detailed investigation of the area with more sensitive counters might reveal the source of the minerals and localities where the minerals are sufficiently concentrated to be minable."
