Jurassic (Bathonian and Callovian) Ammonites in Eastern Oregon and Western Idaho

Description: From abstract: Jurassic ammonites of late Bathonian to middle Callovian Age have been found in 12,000-13,000 feet (3,660-3,960 m) of strata exposed in the area near and south of Izee and Seneca in east-central Oregon. Ammonites of early Callovian Age and possibly also late Bathonian Age occur in several hundred feet of black shale exposed along Dennett Creek near Mineral, Idaho. Early Callovian ammonites also occur in similar black shale exposed on the Oregon side of Snake River Canyon about 32 miles (52 km) south of the northeast corner of Oregon.

Geology and Ore Deposits of the Takilma-Waldo District, Oregon: Including the Blue Creek District

Description: From Abstract: Two areas and their included mineral deposits, situated in Josephine County, southwestern Oregon, are described in this report. They lie within the Klamath Mountains, a region which is made up for the most part of rugged ridges trending in various directions but which, when viewed from higher summits, resembles a dissected plateau and is known as the Klamath peneplain. Rocks of both igneous and sedimentary origin are abundant in the districts described. The marine sedimentary rocks of the areas comprise a thick series of Carboniferous strata, with some interbedded volcanic rocks, and portions of the Galice formation, of Jurassic age, and of an Upper Cretaceous formation. The rocks of fluviatile origin include Tertiary conglomerate, Pleistocene valley fill, termed the " Llano de Oro formation," and somewhat later Pleistocene gravel and alluvium, in part glacial debris. Recent gravel is found along the present streams. The igneous rocks include several varieties of greenstone of probable Paleozoic and Mesozoic age and serpentine of late Jurassic or early Cretaceous age.

Preliminary Report of Reconnaissance for Uraniferous Granitic Rocks in Montana, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and California

Description: From abstract: A reconnaissance to determine the uranium content of granitic rocks in the western states was made during parts of October and November 1951. The paucity of our knowledge of the granitic rocks that are most likely to contain significant quantities of uranium has prevented all but a very general isolation of areas or types of granitic rocks for reconnaissance examination.

Dry-Farming: Methods and Practices in Wheat Growing in the Columbia and Snake River Basins

Description: "This bulletin deals with the dry-farming methods practiced on grain farms in the Pacific Northwest, where the rainfall is less than 15 to 18 inches annually, but it also contains advice helpful to all farmers of that region who practice summer fallowing. Its purpose is to show the possibility of increasing crop yields in the dry-farming areas by using improved methods and to discuss the practices which have been found most advantageous. ...The highest yields have been secured by plowing in the early spring and giving enough cultivation after plowing to keep the weeds well under control. The purposes of summer fallowing and details of the methods by which it is accomplished are given, and the application of these methods to the cultivation of "blow" soils and "nonblow" soils. Methods are suggested for preventing and stopping the blowing of soils. Attention is given to the saving of man labor by the use of large power units, methods of seeding winter and spring wheat are outlined, and suggestions are made for maintaining the organic matter in the soil." -- p. ii
