[Wyoming Uranium Evaluation] Volume 2: Drill-Hole Data, Drill-Site Geology, and Geochemical Data from the Study of Precambrian Uraniferous Conglomerates of the Medicine Bow Mountains and the Sierra Madre of Southeastern Wyoming

Description: From introduction: This volume is presented as a companion to Volume I: The Geology and Uranium Potential of Precambrian Conglomerates in the Medicine Bow Mountains and Sierra Madre of southeastern Wyoming; and to Volume 3: Uranium Assessment for Precambrian Pebble Conglomerates in Southeastern Wyoming. In Volume 1, we summarized the geologic setting and geologic and geochemical characteristics of uranium-bearing conglomerates in Precambrian metasedimentary rocks of southeastern Wyoming. Volume 3 is a geostatistical resource estimate of U and Th in quartz-pebble conglomerates. This volume contains supporting geochemical data, lithologic logs from 48 drill holes in Precambrian rocks of the Medicine Bow Mountains and Sierra Madre, and drill site geologic maps and cross-sections from most of the holes.

[Wyoming Uranium Evaluation] Volume 3: Uranium Assessment for the Precambrian Pebble Conglomerates in Southeastern Wyoming

Description: From introduction: The Geology Department of the University of Wyoming was asked to make a geostatistical assessment of the uranium endowment of these deposits as a part of the World Class core drilling operations of the Bendix Field Engineering Corporation. This study was to include (a) the development of optimum geostatistical methodology for assessing uranium endowment in areas of close drill control (1 mile or less centers) as well as in areas of distant drill control (5 mile centers or more), (.b) the implementation of this methodology in assessing the uranium resources of the pebble conglomerates in southeastern Wyoming, and (c) the determination of the overall geostatistical uncertainty of the resource estimates. In addition, methods were to be studied for projecting the assessments into new areas, including prediction of estimate uncertainty.

Aerial Radiometric and Magnetic Survey of the Amarillo National Topographic Map, NI 14-1, Texas

Description: From introduction: Geodata International, Incorporated, conducted an airborne gamma ray and total magnetic field survey which covered a region of North Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma. The specific area of this report as outlined on Figure 1 was surveyed from an aircraft using large-volume radiation detectors with computer controlled airborne equipment. Each map line was flown in an east-west direction with an average length of 120 miles and each tie line was flown in a north-south direction with an average length of 69 miles. Map lines and tie lines were surveyed spaced at intervals indicated on Figure 2. The data for the total area of Figure 1 were gathered between March-July, 1976.

Baker 1° x 2° NTMS Area, Oregon and Idaho: Data Report (Abbreviated)

Description: From introduction: The data presented here are reconnaissance data intended for use in identifying broad areas for further study. While care has been taken to provide reliable sampling and analyses, verification of individual analyses is beyond the scope of this report. The data should be viewed statistically because "one-point anomalies" may be misleading. Regional trends, however, should be reliable. This report is one of a series presenting data obtained by SRL reconnaissance.

A Modeling Study of Gaseous Rn-222, Xe-133, and He-4 for Uranium Exploration

Description: From introduction: The emanation method of uranium exploration consists of measuring the abundance of one or more uranium decay products at some distance from the orebody itself. The halo of decay products expands the exploration target and improves the chances of detection. This method assumes that indicator nuclides migrate away from the ore by some physio-chemical mechanism such as diffusion or solution in groundwater. The indicators must remain at detectable concentrations and be distinguishable from background levels. This study is concerned with gas-phase transport of Rn-222, Xe-133, and He-4 away from uranium ore deposits. The first of these indicator nuclides, Rn-222, is a member of the uranium series decay chain (Table 1) and has a 3.82 day half-life. The second, Xe-133,. is a spontaneous fission product which has a half-life of 5.26 days. Finally, He-4 is a stable nuclide created from alpha particles emitted by various members of the uranium, actinium, and thorium decay series.

Multivariate Statistical Analysis of Stream Sediments for Mineral Resources from the Craig NTMS Quadrangle, Colorado

Description: Abstract: Multivariate statistical analyses were carried out on Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance data from the Craig quadrangle, Colorado, to support the National Uranium Resource Evaluation and to evaluate strategic or other important commercial mineral resources. A few areas for favorable uranium mineralization are suggested for parts of the Wyoming Basin, Park Range, and Gore Range. Six potential source rocks for uranium are postulated based on factor score mapping. Vanadium in stream sediments is suggested as a pathfinder for carnotite-type mineralization. A probable northwest trend of lead-zinc-copper mineralization associated with Tertiary intrusions is suggested. A few locations are mapped where copper is associated with cobalt. Concentrations of placer sands containing rare earth elements, probably of commercial value, are indicated for parts of the Sand Wash Basin.

Geology and Uranium Favorability of the Sonora Pass Region, Alpine and Tuolumne Counties, California

Description: From project objectives: The Sonora Pass region was identified by the U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) as a potential uranium resource area because of past uranium production at the Juniper Mine and reported high-grade occurrences in other buried fluvial channels which are Tertiary in age. The objective of the Sonora Pass drilling project was to obtain subsurface data that would increase the accuracy of uranium reserve estimates for the project area.
