Uranium Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance of the Tularosa NTMS Quadrangle, New Mexico

Description: From introduction: This report describes work done in the Tularosa, New Mexico, National Topographic Map Series (NTMS) quadrangle (1:250 000 scale) by the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (LASL) as part of the nationwide Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance (HSSR).

Uranium Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance in Southwestern Montana

Description: From introduction: This report presents data gathered in a Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance (HSSR) conducted by the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (LASL) in southwestern Montana. The HSSR was initiated by the US Department of Energy (DOE) to outline areas favorable for uranium exploration by examining uranium concentrations in natural waters and stream sediments.

Structure of the Tshirege Member of the Bandelier Tuff at Mesita del Buey, Technical Area 54, Los Alamos National Laboratory

Description: The geological structure of the Tshirege Member of the Bandelier Tuff at Mesita del Buey, Technical Area 54, was examined using precise surveying of the contact between tuff units Iv and 2 for 3.5 km along the north wall of Pajarito Canyon and 0.6 km along the north wall of a tributary to Caiiada del Buey. Estimated structure contours on this contact indicate typical strikes of N40E to N70E along this part of Mesita del Buey, although the apparent stfike of the tuff is E-W at the western part of the survey. Typical dips are 1.OO to 2.0o to the east or southeast, with an estimated maximum dip of 3.2o near the west end of Material Disposal AreaG. Thirty seven faults with vertical displacements of 5 to 65 cm were observedin outcrops along the Pajarito Canyon traverse, and, due to the incomplete exposure of the contact between unit lV and unit 2, many more faults of this magnitude undoubtedly exist. The faults have a wide range in strike and have either down-to-the-west or down-to-the-east components of offset, although about 65% of the observed displacement is down-to-the-west or northwest. The general absence of larger-scale offsets or inflections along the contact between units lV and 2 in areas where the small-scale faults were observed suggests that they are not associated with major fault zones. Instead, these faults may record distributed secondary deformation across the Pajarito Plateau associated with large earthquakes on the main Pajarito fault zone 8 to 11 km to the west, or perhaps earthquakes on other faults in the region. The survey data also suggest that a 150 to 250 m wide zone of greater magnitude faulting is present near the west end of the traverse associated with a horst-and-graben structure displaying about 1.5 to 3.5 m of offset on ...

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.
