Condition Survey: Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota

Description: The purpose of this report is to present the results of a condition survey performed at Minot Air Force Base (MAFB), North Dakota, during 11-15 April 1972. The three major areas of interest considered in this condition survey were the structural condition of the primary airfield pavements, the condition of pavement repairs and the types of maintenance materials that have been used at this airfield, and any detrimental effects of frost action to the pavement facilities.

Condition Survey: Grand Forks Air Force Base, North Dakota

Description: "The purpose of this report is to present the results of a condition survey performed at Grand Forks Air Force Base (GFAFB), North Dakota, during 18-22 April 1972. The three major areas of interest considered in this condition survey were the structural condition of the primary airfield pavements, the condition of pavement repairs and the types of maintenance materials that have been used at this airfield, and any detrimental effects of frost action to the pavement facilities" (p. 1).

Stratigraphy and Geologic History of the Montana Group and Equivalent Rocks, Montana, Wyoming, and North and South Dakota

Description: From introduction: This is a progress report on regional stratigraphic and paleontologic studies of the Upper Cretaceous Montana Group and equivalent rocks in the northern part of the western interior of the United States. It presents preliminary data on the positions of strandlines during a 14-m.y. (million year) span of the Late Cretaceous as well as our interpretations of the geologic history of this period.

Strippable lignite Deposits, Slope and Bowman Counties, North Dakota

Description: From abstract: Slope and Bowman Counties, N. Dak., include an area of about 2,450 square miles in the southeastern part of the Fort Union coal region of North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana. In anticipation of a future increase in the demand for the low-rank coal of this region as a fuel for electric power plants and as a raw material for various chemical synthesizing processes, Slope and Bowman Counties were investigated for deposits of lignite that could be mined by large scale strip mining methods. All the lignite beds of economic importance in this area are in the Fort Union formation, particularly in the Tongue River member. The beds are nearly horizontal, dipping about 25 to 50 feet per mile north and northeast from the Cedar Creek anticline in the southwest corner of the area.

Tectonic Map of Western North Dakota Showing the Distribution of Uranium Deposits

Description: From introduction: A tectonic map for the northern part of the Cordilleran Foreland / is being compiled to aid in establishing the geologic setting of uranium deposits within the region and to determine relationships, if any, that exist between the distribution of uranium deposits and the regional tectonic pattern (Osterwald, 1955).

Stratigraphy of the Pierre Shale, Valley City and Pembina Mountain Areas, North Dakota

Description: From abstract: Reconnaissance examination of widely scattered outcrops of Upper Cretaceous rocks in the heavily glaciated areas of eastern North Dakota provides the basis for the first formal subdivision of the Pierre Shale in these areas.

Uranium-Bearing Lignite and its Relation to the White River and Arikaree Formations in Northwestern South Dakota and Adjacent States

Description: From introduction: The purpose of the study is to evaluate the economic possibilities of radioactive lignites and to determine the geologic factors controlling the accumulation of uranium in lignite.

Water Resources of the Rattlesnake Butte Area, a Site of Potential Lignite Mining in West-Central North Dakota

Description: From objectives and scope: The objectives of the study were to: (1) Determine the geographic extent of the minable lignite beds and identify aquifers down to a depth of about 400 feet beneath the lower minable lignite; (2) assess the ground-water flow regime in all aquifers found; (3) evaluate the flow characteristics of the two streams draining the study area; and (5) qualitatively assess the impacts mining might have on the hydrologic system.

Hydrology of the Wibaux-Beach Lignite Deposit Area, Eastern Montana and Western North Dakota

Description: From objectives and scope: This study was undertaken in response to U.S. Bureau of Land Management concerns for the water resources of the Wibaux-Beach area in the event of lignite mining. The objectives of the study were to: (1) Define the stratigraphic sequence within a few hundred feet above and below the minable lignite; (2) define the premining hydrologic and geochemical regime of the Wibaux-Beach deposit area; and (3) describe some of the hydrologic implications of the strip-mining process. A fourth objective, the establishment of historical data base with which to access any modifications to the system attributable to future mining, was accomplished as a byproduct of the other three.

Machine-Readable Data Files from the Madison Limestone and Northern Great Plains Regional Aquifer System Analysis Projects, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming

Description: Abstract: This report lists the machine-readable data files developed for the Madison Limestone and Northern Great Plains Regional Aquifer System Analysis (RASA) projects that are stored on magnetic tape and available from the U.S. Geological Survey. Record format, file content, and size are given for: (1) Drill-stem-test data for Paleozoic and Mesozoic formations; (2) geologic data from the Madison Limestone project; (3) data sets used in the regional simulation model; (4) hydraulic-head data for the Lower and Upper Cretaceous aquifers; and (5) geologic data for Mesozoic formations of the Northern Great Plains.

Preliminary Digital Model of Ground-Water Flow in the Madison Group, Powder River Basin and Adjacent Areas, Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Nebraska

Description: Abstract: A digital simulation model was used to analyze regional ground-water flow in the Madison Group aquifer in the Powder River Basin and adjacent areas. Most recharge to the aquifer originates in or near the outcrop areas of the Madison in the Bighorn Mountains and Black Hills , and most discharge occurs through springs and wells. Results from the model calculations indicate that the total flow through the aquifer in the modeled areas was approximately 200 cubic feet per second (5.7 cubic metres per second). The aquifer can probably sustain increased ground-water withdrawals probably would significantly lower the potentiometric surface in the Madison aquifer in a large part of the basin. The digital model could better predict the effects of withdrawals if more accurate estimates of the storage coefficient, transmissivity, and leakance could be obtained.
