Preliminary Report on the Fundamentals of the Control of Turbine-Propeller Jet Power Plant

Description: On the basis of the investigations so far completed on the behavior of PTL power plants under various operating conditions, in which the influence of the propeller characteristics is of considerable importance, the most important aspects of a control system for turbine-propeller jet power plants are deduced. A simple possible means for its concrete realization, which is also applicable to TL [NACA comment: TL, jet] power plants, is presented by means of examples. A control device of this kind is now being developed.

Preliminary Report on the Geology and Uranium Deposits at Temple Mountain and Green Vein Mesa, San Rafael Swell, Emery County, Utah

Description: From abstract: In 1953 the U. S. Geological Survey started the present program of uranium investigations on behalf of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission in the San Rafael Swell, Emery County, Utah. Two areas within the Swell were selected and studied; one in the vicinity of Temple Mountain and the other at Green Vein Mesa.

Preliminary Report on the Geology and Uranium Deposits of South Elk Ridge, San Juan County, Utah

Description: From abstract: Elk Ridge is in southeastern Utah in the central part of San Juan County. It forms a conspicuous ridge on the north end of the Monument upwarp. During the summer of 1953 field work was largely restricted to South Elk Ridge, that part of Elk Ridge which is south of The Notch. Permian and Triassic sedimentary rocks crop out in the area and Jurassic and Cretaceous rocks are exposed east of the area.

Preliminary Report on the Geology of the Tiger (Hideout) Claim, White Canyon Area, San Juan County, Utah, with Recommendations for Exploration for Geologic Information

Description: From introduction: The purpose of the mapping was to study the habits of the uranium minerals with relation to the geologic features of the White Canyon area, The work has been done by the U. S. Geological Survey on behalf of the Atomic Energy Commission. The Tiger claim is recommended for exploration by diamond drilling to obtain geologic information on the trend, length, depth, and width of the scour channel, and the relationship of uranium and copper minerals to the Shinarump-filled channel and to fractures.

Preliminary Report on the Jo Reynolds Area, Lawson-Dumont District, Clear Creek County, Colorado

Description: From abstract: Pitchblende is known to occur in the Jo Reynolds deposit, which was primarily a lead-zinc-silver ore body. The reported production in 1919 of 8 tons of high-grade uranium ore, presumably from the lowest workings of the mine, is still unconfirmed but has a fair degree of credibility.

Preliminary Report on the Ketchikan Mining District, Alaska, with an Introductory Sketch of the Geology of Southeastern Alaska

Description: From introduction: Since 1898 the United States Geological Survey has been carrying on a systematic investigation of the mineral resources of Alaska.As the northern mining districts of southeastern Alaska had already been the subject of an investigation by Dr. Becker in 1895,a and as the Ketchikan district was being rapidly developed, it was decided to spend the greater part of the short season in the Ketchikan district and in the fall to make a more hasty reconnaissance of the northern belt, in order to obtain a general familiarity with the region and, if possible, to establish some correlations. This plan was carried out, and the results of the work are embodied in the following report.

Preliminary Report on the Mineral Hill Monazite Deposits, Lemhi County, Idaho

Description: From abstract: The Mineral Hill monazite deposits, 3 to 5 miles northeast of the town of Shoup, Lemhi County, Idaho, were investigated by the U. S. Geological Survey in July 1952. The deposits are replacement veins and lenses along shears in a pendant, principally of pre-Cambrian biotite gniess, about 4 to 5 miles in size and enclosed by granite of the Idaho batholith. The veins consist predominantly of calcite, monazite, and allanite, and contain minor quantities of barite, magnetite, rutile, and apatite.

Preliminary Report on the Results of Geobotanical Prospecting on the South Flank of Haystack Butte, McKinley County, New Mexico

Description: Abstract: The absorber plant method of geobotanical prospecting was tested systematically over the bench formed by the Jurassic Todilto limestone on the south flank of Haystack Butte, McKinley County, N. Mex. This portion of the bench includes the largest known uranium ore body in limestone and most has been extensively drilled by private enterprise. Geobotanical prospecting was accomplished to provide control data. Comparison of the geobotanical anomalies with the available drill hole information from the mining companies and Atomic Energy Commission geologists have shown that the known ore occurrences would have been outlined by the results of the tree sampling. In addition some geobotanical anomalies are indicated in drilled areas in which ore was not reported and in areas not physically explored at the time of sampling. These anomalies may represent mineralized ground below ore grade or new ore deposits.

Preliminary Report on the Rimini Area, Jefferson City Quadrangle, Jefferson County and Lewis and Clark County, Montana

Description: Abstract: A number of radioactivity anomalies and secondary uranium minerals have been found in the Rimini area near the northwestern margin of the Boulder batholith. Most of the anomalies are associated with chalcedonic vein zones that consist of one or more veins of cryptocrystalline and fine-grained quartz in silicified quartz monzonite and alaskite. Seventeen of the anomalies were found along veins that contain base and precious metals; nine were along veins in the vicinity of the village of Rimini from which there has been production of lead, silver, zinc, and gold.

Preliminary Report on Uranium-Bearing Deposits in Mohave County, Arizona

Description: Abstract: Preliminary studies of the Wallapai Mining District and selected properties in the Maynard and Greenwood Mining Districts, Mohave County, Arizona, from January 8 to March 8, 1953, were made to determine the extent of uranium mineralization. All of the uranium properties examined are of the vein type and are believed to be of mesothermal origin. Brecciation and porosity of the veins appear to be controlling factors in the concentration of uranium minerals from the ore-bearing solutions. Although the uranium minerals present in these districts have not been specifically identified, they appear to be mostly primary with very minor occurrences of secondary products. One exception is the State mine in the Greenwood District, where secondary minerals predominate.

Preliminary Report on Uranium-Bearing Pliocene (?) Rocks in the Split Rock Area, Central Wyoming

Description: From abstract: A sequence of slightly radioactive Pliocene(?) rocks in the Split Rock area of central Wyoming is at least 600 feet thick, underlies an area of more than 25 square miles, and consists of alternating beds of tuffaceous shale, sandstone, and pumicite. Only a small part of the section has been examined. In addition to the uranium content of the strata, there has been secondary concentration of uranium in brecciated limestone similar to spring deposits that could be of Pliocene or Pleistocene age.

Preliminary Report on Uranium Deposits in the Gulf Coastal Plain, Southern Texas

Description: Abstract: Concentration of secondary uranium minerals, some of which are commercially significant, have been found in three formations of Tertiary age in the Gulf Coastal Plain area of southern Texas: the Fayette sandstone of the Jackson formation, the Catahoula tuff, and the Oakville sandstone.

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.
