Results of U.S. Geological Survey Exploration for Uranium-Vanadium Deposits in the Club Mesa Area, Uravan District, Montrose County, Colorado

Description: From introduction: This report summarizes some of the results of U. S. Geological Survey investigations in the Club Mesa area and presents a compilation of available geologic data that would be helpful in future exploration. Detailed geologic logs of U. S. Geological Survey holes drilled in the Club Mesa area on public land that is no longer withdrawn from mineral entry are on open file for public inspection in the U. S. Geological Survey office, Grand Junction, Colorado.

Mineralogical Classification of Uranium-Vanadium Deposits of the Colorado Plateau

Description: Abstract: The uranium deposits of the Colorado Plateau contain suites of minerals that are the result of different stages of oxidation of deposits with different elemental composition. A classification based on composition and stage of oxidation is presented.

Tectonic Map of Western North Dakota Showing the Distribution of Uranium Deposits

Description: From introduction: A tectonic map for the northern part of the Cordilleran Foreland / is being compiled to aid in establishing the geologic setting of uranium deposits within the region and to determine relationships, if any, that exist between the distribution of uranium deposits and the regional tectonic pattern (Osterwald, 1955).

Tectonic Map of Eastern Montana Showing the Distribution of Uranium Deposits

Description: From introduction: A tectonic map for the northern part of the Cordilleran Foreland was compiled to aid in establishing the geologic setting of uranium deposits within the region, and to determine what relationships, if any, exist between the distribution of uranium deposits and localities, and the regional tectonic pattern (Osterwald, 1955). The relationships might suggest new areas favorable for the discovery of uranium deposits in the Cordilleran Foreland as well as in other areas with simil… more

Tectonic Map of Western South Dakota Showing the Distribution of Uranium Deposits

Description: From introduction: A tectonic map of most of the Cordilleran Foreland (fig. 2) is being compiled as an aid to study the geologic setting of uranium deposits within the region, and to determine what relationships may exist between the distribution of uranium deposits and the regional tectonic pattern (Osterwald, 1955). The map will show the distribution of faults, uranium deposits, areas of volcanic activity, and crestlines and troughs of folds.

Tectonic Map of Western Nebraska and Northwestern Kansas Showing the Distribution of Uranium Occurrences

Description: From introduction: The Cordilleran Foreland (King. 1951, p. 58-62; Horberg and others, 1949, p. 192194) forms a broad north-south belt, parallel to and east of the Cordilleran geanticline (fig. 1), in which the predominant geologic structure is a series of anticlinal mountains and broad asymmetric basins that contrast sharply with the folds and overthrusts related to the Cordilleran geanticline. A tectonic map of most of the Cordilleran Foreland (fig. 2) is being compiled as an aid to study the… more

Tectonic Map of Wyoming, East of the Overthrust Belt, Showing the Distribution of Uranium Deposits

Description: From introduction: The compilation of the tectonic map of Wyoming east of the overthrust belt (area 6, fig. 2) was done by the U. S. Geological Survey on behalf of the Division of Raw Materials of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission. Structures shown on the map have been obtained from published geologic maps and from unpublished data supplied by Government agencies, private companies, and independent geologists. The tectonic map of Wyoming east of the overthrust belt is only a progress report; a… more

Eastern and Central Montana as a Possible Source Area of Uranium

Description: From abstract: Geologic settings are recognized in central and eastern Montana and in a few places in southwestern Montana that elsewhere are similar to the settings for the occurrence of uranium deposits. Several specific areas in Montana seem favorable for the occurrence of uranium.

Geologic Features of Areas of Abnormal Radioactivity South of Ocala, Marion County, Florida

Description: From abstract: Areas of abnormal radioactivity south of Ocala, Marion County, Fla., discovered in 1953 by aerial survey, were investigated by surface examination and by 10 power auger drill holes. Interbedded clay, clayey sand, and uraniferous phosphorite occur in the areas of anomalous radioactivity. Miocene fossils occur at three localities in these beds which are evidently outliers of Miocene sediments on the Ocala limestone of Eocene age. The preserved outliers are southwest of the main bel… more

Tectonic Map of Northern Colorado and Northeastern Utah, Showing the Distribution of Uranium Deposits

Description: From introduction: The compilation of the tectonic map of northern Colorado and northeastern Utah (area h, fig. 2) was done by the U. S. Geological Survey on behalf of the Division of Raw Materials of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission. Structures shown on the map have been obtained from published geologic maps, and from unpublished data supplied by government agencies, private companies, and independent geologists. The various structures of the Foreland can be divided into three large classes … more

Simplified Geologic Map Showing Uranium Deposits and Principal Ore-Bearing Formations of the North Central Cordilleran Foreland Region

Description: From introduction: The Cordilleran Foreland has been defined by Osterwald (1956, p. 1) as "a region containing distinctive structural elements that forms a broad north-south belt parallel to and east of the Cordilleran geanticline...." The location of these tectonic regions is shown in figure 4 of this report. region are an important potential source of uranium in the United States. The accompanying maps (figs. 1, 2, and 3) show the location of most of the known uranium deposits and the localit… more

Preliminary Report on Lost Creek Schroeckingerite Area, Sweetwater County, Wyoming

Description: Introduction: This report is a summary of the field work at the Lost Creek schroeckingerite deposit, Sweetwater County, Wyo. from July 1 through November 22, 1952. The objectives of field work at Lost Creek during the report period were to obtain additional data for calculating tonnage and grade and to obtain additional information on the controls and localization of schroeckingerite. In order to accomplish these objectives the Survey continued the exploration by means of trenching, mapped all … more
