The Oil Fields of Allen County Kentucky, with Notes on the Oil Geology of Adjoining Counties

Description: From introduction: The purpose of the field work was to investigate the geology of the county, particularly the structure or lay of the oil-bearing strata and the results of drilling to date. Structural conditions in the producing fields were determined by running level lines to the wells and correlating the data recorded in the well logs generously furnished by the operators.

Quaternary Movement Along the La Jencia Fault, Central New Mexico

Description: From abstract: The La Jencia fault is a recently reactivated late Cenozoic basin margin structure of major proportions that forms the western margin of the Rio Grande rift, which borders the eastern sides of the northern Magdalena Mountains and the southern Bear Mountains in central New Mexico. Stratigraphic throw on the fault has not been determined, but Precambrian rocks of the Magdalena Mountains are uplifted a minimum of 800 m (meters) above the adjacent basin floor, below which lie a thick section of upper Cenozoic basin-fill deposits. Most of the implied displacement is probably Neogene in age.

Geology of the southern Guadalupe Mountains, Texas

Description: From Abstract: "This report deals with an area of 425 square miles in the western part of Texas, immediately south of the New Mexico line. The report describes the geology of the area, that is, the nature of its rocks, tectonics, and surface features, and the evidence that they give as to the evolution of the area through geologic time. Incidental reference is made to the geology of surrounding regions in order to place the area in its environment."

Stratigraphy, Structure, and Mineralization in the Beaver-Tarryall Area, Park County, Colorado: A Reconnaissance Report

Description: From Introduction: "The recent large increase in gold production from the Alma district has greatly stimulated interest in territory immediately to the east, where many small gold-bearing veins have been discovered. Consequently, as a cooperative project of the United States Geological Survey and the State of Colorado, 7 weeks in 1938 were devoted to renaissance work to determine the origin of the placer gold and the possibilities for discovering valuable lode deposits either near the surface or at depth."

Nickel Deposit Near Gold Hill, Boulder County, Colorado

Description: From Introduction: "Scattered throughout the Colorado Front Range, there are many small copper deposits, believed to be of pre-Cambrian age. The have been widely prospected but have produced little or no ore. In one of these, the Copper King mine, near Gold Hill, Colo., nickel was discovered in 1930, and development in the following years has exposed some 25,000 tons of ore containing from 2 to 3 percent of nickel. No other nickel deposit is known in the Front Range, but a somewhat similar deposit has been opened in Gem mine, near Canon City and about 120 miles south of Gold Hill."

Structural Geology of the Hawthorne and Tonopah Quadrangles, Nevada

Description: From introduction: The object of this paper is to describe the salient features of Jurassic diastrophism in parts of the Tonopah and Hawthorne quadrangles in west-central Nevada. The problem is complicated by the lack of continuity of exposures, earlier folding of the older rocks, metamorphism caused by the later granitic in-trusions, and by superposed Tertiary and later normal faults.

Quicksilver Deposits of the Opalite District, Malheur County, Oregon and Humboldt County, Nevada

Description: From Introduction: "The Opalite quicksilver district includes two deposits with a considerable past production, one deposit with a small production, and one unproved prospect. These deposits are located along the circumference of a semicircular area that extends from a short distance west of McDermitt, Nev., for about 20 miles along the Oregon-Nevada State boundary. (See fig. 34). The area thus includes parts of Humboldt County, Nev., and Malheur County, Oreg.; almost the entire production has been derived from the portion in Oregon."

Superposition in the Interpretation of Two-Layer Earth-Resistivity Curves

Description: From abstract: A method is presented for the interpretation of data on electrical resistivity by the superposition of standard reference curves on those obtained from field observations. This method is applicable where bedrock whose average resistivity is essentially uniform is overlain by overburden whose average resistivity is also uniform but markedly distinct.

Mesizoic strata are especially well represented."

Mineral Industry of Alaska in 1938

Description: From introduction: The presentation of a yearly record of the Alaska mineral industry is a continuing service that has been rendered by the Geological Survey from almost the earliest years of extensive mining in Alaska, and the present report, for 1938, is the thirty-fifth of this series. 2 Such a record, especially when supplemented by the statistics for the preceding years, not only affords an authoritative summary of current 'and past conditions but also indicates trends that are of significance in suggesting the lines along which future developments of the industry are likely to proceed. These reports therefore serve miners, prospectors, and businessmen concerned with Alaska affairs as useful historical records, statements of contemporary conditions, and starting points on which some conjectures concerning future operations may be predicated.
