The Quantitative Techniques of Scintillation Spectrometry as Applied to the Calibration of Standard Sources

Description: Report presenting "the determination of absolute gamma emission rates for monoenergetic gamma emitters using a single-channel scintillation spectrometer. Examples are given for Cr⁵¹, Cs¹³⁷, Nb⁹⁵, and Zn⁶⁵. Sources of error are discussed and steps being taken to improve the accuracy of the method are described" (p. 1).

Geologic and Radiometric Reconnaissance Along the San Juan and Colorado Rivers Between Mexican Hat, Utah, and Lees Ferry Arizona

Description: Abstract: Ten days were spent during June 1955, examining the sedimentary rocks along the San Juan and Colorado Rivers between Mexican Hat, Utah, and Lee's Ferry, Arizona. The most favorable area for uranium deposits occurs in the Shinarump member of the Chinle formation between Clay Hills Crossing and Spencer Camp along the San Juan River. Mineralization is spotty and deposits are small and almost all below ore-grade. Only one small mine, the Whirlwind, is currently producing ore. Gray-green alteration of the underlying Moenkopi is moderately developed in the vicinity of the Whirlwind mine; elsewhere alteration is weakly developed.

Preliminary Report on Uranium Occurrences on the Yuma Test Station Yuma County, Arizona

Description: From introduction: This report is written in response to a request from the Army Engineers for an appraisal of the uranium potential of the area included in the Yams Test Station. the area of Proposed Expansion of the Yuma Test Station, and the Williams Bombing and Gunnery Range. Only the area covered by the present Yuma Test Station is included here. The other areas will be discussed In subsequent reports.

Final Report: Airborne Reconnaissance Project Dripping Spring, Quartzite, Gila County, Arizona

Description: Abstract: A low-level airborne radiometric survey of the younger pre-Cambrian Dripping Spring quartzite, undertaken in the mountainous region lying roughly 100 riles east of Phoenix, was completed June 3, 1955. Twenty-seven radioactive anomalies were located. To date seven of these have produced uranium ore, four more will probably become producers, and six others may possibly become producers. Flying was concentrated in the Dripping Spring quartzite, but reconnaissance flights were made over other formations. Private prospecting, both from the air and on the ground, increased considerably when the airborne project started. Eleven of the private discoveries have produced ore, and many others show considerable promise.

Separation of Zirconium & Hafnium : Proposal for Construction & Operation of Zirconium Production Plant

Description: Abstract: A re-evaluation of the cost of producing essentially hafnium free zirconium as zirconium oxide at a rate of 150,000-200,000 pounds zirconium per year by solvent extraction of the metal thiocyanates in a permanent plant has been made. Using part of the present temporary facilities, the cost, with five year amortization of the plant, will be $3.15 per pound zirconium. A by-product of the mixed oxides of hafnium and zirconium, having at least fifty percent hafnium and perhaps as high as ninety percent hafnium, can be made available with little additional cost.

Zirconium-Hafnium Separation : Mixer-Settler Studies : Final Report

Description: Abstract: Use of the mixer-settler apparatus as a rapid means of determining improved conditions for plant operation is described including the experimental details. The preparation of highly purified samples of both zirconium oxide and hafnium oxide is discussed. (This document is concerned almost entirely with explorations of small scale continuous systems. Another document dealing with this general problem using small scale batch operations is being published simultaneously. It should prove of advantage to the reader to study this companion report, Document Y-611, by Barton, Overholser, and Grimes, to obtain a complete picture of the available information.).
