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 of Reconnaissance in the Cameron Area, Arizona

Description: Introduction: A radiometric airborne reconnaissance of the Cameron, Arizona, district was conducted in the late fall of 1952 and early winter of 1953. Flying was carried out under the direction of the Salt Lake Exploration Branch of the Atomic Energy Commission, Division of Raw Materials. Airborne equipment and ground personnel were provided through the Technical Services Branch of the Grand Junction Exploration Division.

Report on SOM Investigations in Arizona (Except the Plateau Province Area)

Description: From summary: Union Mines' examination of Arizona's pegmatites, lode deposits of the central and southeastern parts of the state, and heavy mineral concentrates from few placer deposits indicates that SOM is practically non-existent in the first two and that minor amounts of monazite and possibly other S-37 minerals are present in the last.

Drilling in the Flatirons Locality, Monument Valley, Arizona

Description: From introduction: A subsurface exploration program was undertaken to investigate the concentration of uranium and vanadium in or near the base of the Shinarump member of the Chinle formation in the Flatirons locality, and to develop criteria whereby adjacent unexplored areas could be evaluated as to potential production capacity from study of geological and mineralogical features at the host rook outcrop. An earlier study of the area by C. G. Evensen of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission had shown that geological conditions favorable to the accumulation of commercial uranium deposits were present in the Flatirons area.

Investigation of Shinarump Channels on Oljetoh Mesa, Arizona - Utah

Description: From to the files: The Shinarump-Moenkopi contact on Oljetoh Mesa in the Monument Valley district, Arizona-Utah, was examined from November 5 to 15, 1951, to determine the location of and the mineralization in Shinarump channels. Twenty-seven distinct channel outcrops were located and examined. Three of these channel outcrops are mineralized and the remaining 24 are barren. Plate I shows the distribution of the Shinarump, the Moenkopi, and the DeChelly member of the Cutler formation; the location of the Shinarmp channel outcrops; the channel trend where there is good evidence for such a trend. The Hoskinrnini tongue of the Cutler was mapped with the Moenkopi as it is not a good mappable unit in this area. The three mineralized outcrops are indicated by the letters A, G, and AA while the barren outcrops bear the letters B to F and H to Z.

Geology and Ore Deposits of Mesa V, Lukachukai District, Arizona

Description: From abstract: Mesa V of the Lukachukai area is capped by Morrison sediments which dip gently eastward from the mountains to the mesa tip, where the strata are tilted sharply to the opposite dip by the Lukachukai monocline. The Salt Wash of Mesa V contains ore outcrops which indicate favorable intensity of mineralization at one horizon along a 2000-foot outcrop interval. Other scatted exposures indicate the existence of ore under much of the mesa surface.

USAEC Airborne Radiometric Reconnaissance in Arizona, California, Nevada and New Mexico, 1953 to 1956

Description: From introduction: This is one of a series of three reports on airborne radioactivity surveys in the United States. The reports contain the 185 airborne anomaly maps issued by the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission as a result of the AEC's aerial surveying program conducted from March 1952 to June 1956; two ground reconnaissance maps of Utah also are included. Most of the reconnaissance was done in the western United States.

Stream Sediment Detailed Geochemical Survey for Date Creek Basin, Arizona

Description: From abstract: Results of the Date Creek Basin detailed geochemical survey are reported. Field and laboratory data are reported for 239 stream sediment samples. Statistical and areal distributions of uranium and possible uranium-related variables are displayed. A generalized geologic map of the area is provided, and pertinent geologic factors which may be of significance in evaluating the potential for uranium mineralization are briefly discussed.
