A Battery-Powered Fluorimeter for the Determination of Uranium

Description: Abstract: A transmission fluorimeter is described which is completely battery-powered and which is suitable for use in the laboratory, in field stations, or in mobile units. The ultraviolet light source is a 3-watt RP-12 lamp. The instrument is sufficiently sensitive for the determination of 0.001 percent uranium in a 0.4-mg sample.

Black Shale Investigations, Block 3, Tennessee

Description: Report discussing a geological examination of the Chattanooga shale in the general vicinity of the Sequatchie Valley, Tennessee (Block 3) during the period from February 1948 to March 1948. This examination was part of a larger study of the distribution of uranium in the Chattanooga Shale.

Carnotite Resources in the Charles T. Area and Vicinity, San Miguel County, Colorado

Description: Report discussing an exploratory drilling program in the Charles T. area and vicinity during the period from November 1947 and September 1949. "The purpose of the exploration was to discover new carnotite deposits to support milling operations on the Colorado Plateau, and to appraise the uranium and vanadium resources of the area explored."

Exploration of the Big Boulder Prospect, Larimer County, Colorado

Description: From introduction: The Big Boulder prospect is in SE 1/4 sec. 36, T.7N., R.,72W., in Tarimer County, Colorado. The prospect has been opened by four irregular trenches and shallow cuts, and a 10-foot discovery shaft. Hanley 1/4 states that 10.5 tons of beryl were produced from the Big Boulder prospect in 1936, and about 600 pounds in 1941.

Forty-Niner, King Solomon Ridge, and West End Claims Near Clancy, Jefferson County, Montana

Description: Abstract: Secondary minerals of the uranite group occur in dense quartz veins and in altered aplitic granite along and near the crest of the east-trending ridge about one mile west of Clancy, Montana. Brief examination suggests that the radioactive minerals are erratically distributed, but a more thorough study of the area will be made by the Geological Survey during the coming field season.

A Glossary of Uranium- and Thorium-Bearing Minerals

Description: Glossary of minerals containing uranium and thorium. "In the index there are 325 entries which represent 81 species containing uranium and thorium as major constituents, 39 species containing small amounts of uranium and thorium, 29 species which should be tested for uranium and thorium, and 13 species which have been reported to contain impurities or intergrowths of uranium, thorium, or rare-earth minerals."

Magnesite Deposits of Central Ceará, Brazil

Description: From introduction: The purpose of this study was to investigate the quantity and quality of [Central Ceara, Brazil] magnesite, and the writer concludes that this group of deposits constitutes one of the major reserves of high-grade magnesite in the Western Hemisphere. The ore could be used in the production of any commercial grade of magnesia with little or no beneficiation. Soil and alluvial overburden is thin between widespread outcrops, so all the deposits could be mined from open pits.

Pitchblende Deposits at the Wood and Calhoun Mines, Central City Mining District, Gilpin County, Colorado

Description: From introduction: The purpose of this work was to determine the distribution and reserves of pitchblende in the veins. These particular mines were selected because the other mines that had produced pitchblende in the east were either inaccessible, or accessible under such adverse conditions as to make detailed mapping impracticable.

Potential by-Product Elements in the Phosphoria Formation of the Western States

Description: Report discussing elements that may be by-products of mining or processing phosphate rock. "Many of these elements are of interest because they are essential, if only in small quantities, to plant growth. Others are of concern because they must be removed from the phosphate rock before some of the chemical products manufactured from it can be utilized without deleterious effects."

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.

A Preliminary Report on Methods of Determining the Age of Colorado Plateau Carnotite

Description: From Abstract: "Four methods of dating Colorado Plateau carnotite have been examined and evaluated: mineralogic methods, radioactive-equilibrium methods, lead-uranium-ratio methods, and lead-isotope methods. The data on 12 high-grade samples, from a suite of 50 representative carnotite ores, are presented."

The Preparation of Nuclear-Track Plates and Stripping Films for the Study of Radioactive Minerals

Description: Abstract: Some modifications of current techniques for preparing nuclear plates for mineralogical studies are described. A method of mounting nuclear-track stripping film on thin sections is given. Illustrations are presented of the application of these techniques to the study of the radioactivity of powdered rocks, minerals, or thin sections.
