Geology of the Stanford-Hobson Area, Central Montana

Description: From introduction: The Stanford-Hobson area project was undertaken by the United States Geological Survey, in cooperation with the United States Bureau of Reclamation, as part of a program for the geologic mapping and investigation of mineral resources in the Missouri River basin. The field work that is the basis of the ensuing report consisted of mapping the geology and determining stratigraphic relationships in sufficient detail to evaluate the mineral resources, especially the oil and gas possibilities in the area.

Favorability for Uranium in Tertiary Sedimentary Rocks, Southwestern Montana

Description: The objective of the study was to evaluate the favorability for potential uranium resources in Tertiary and related strata. Past studies indicate that the Tertiary basins in southwestern Montana are worthy of further investigation because (1) several basins contain a thick sequence of continental sedimentary rocks, (2) several basins are near possible granitic source rocks that have known uranium occurrences, and (3) some of the Montana basins are geologically similar to basins in Wyoming that are host to important sandstone-type deposits. This study focuses on sedimentary rocks of Tertiary age, but includes some rocks of Late Cretaceous and Pleistocene ages. In some areas only a portion of the total Tertiary sedimentary section could be studied because of poor surface exposures and limited subsurface information.

The Glaciation of the Yellowstone Valley, North of the Park

Description: From outline: The present paper gives a detailed account of the glaciation of the Snowy mountains and of the upper valleys of the Yellowstone, whose deposits show an unusual phase of alpine glaciation. The evidence thus far gathered shows that a large body of ice, originating in the ice sheets of the Yellowstone National Park, pushed northward, filling the upper valleys of the Yellowstone and extending down that stream 36 miles north of the park boundary.

The Eastern Front of the Bitterroot Range, Montana

Description: From abstract: The origin of the gneissic rocks on the eastern border of the Idaho batholith in the Bitterroot Range, near Hamilton, Mont., has long been in dispute. Lindgren regarded these rocks as the product of stresses related to a normal fault along the front of the range with an eastward dip of about 150. He thought both the hanging wall and the footwall had moved, with a total displacement along the fault plane of at least 20,000 feet. The faulting was believed to have been so recent as to be a major factor in the present topography. Langton appears to accept the concept of faulting but to regard the gneissic rocks as formed much earlier from a granitic rock that was more silicic and older than the Idaho batholith.

Geology of the Big Snowy Mountains, Montana

Description: From introduction: The main purpose of the field investigations on which this paper is based was to determine the structure of the mountains. The geologic formations were therefore studied, and sufficient data were obtained to construct a combined areal and structural map.

Free Enterprise Uranium Prospect, Jefferson County, Montana

Description: Abstract: The Free Enterprise property is located in the Boulder mining district, Jefferson County, Montana. Secondary uranium minerals occur here in small irregular concentrations in and adjacent to a narrow silicified fracture zone in quartz monzonite.

Geology and Mineral Resources of North-Central Chouteau, Western Hill, and Eastern Liberty Counties, Montana

Description: From abstract: This report describes a rectangular area of about 2,600 square miles in Chouteau, Hill, and Liberty Counties, Mont., adjacent to the international boundary. The area is a portion of the Missouri Plateau, a section of the Great Plains province, and lies between the Highwood Mountains, Bearpaw Mountains, and Sweetgrass Hills, of north-central Montana. The southern part of the area is drained by the Missouri River and its tributary Marias River, but the northern part is drained by the Milk River. These streams are trenched in narrow valleys several hundred feet deep. The land surface between them is a rolling plain interrupted by very broad, shallow valleys that probably were eroded during the Pleistocene epoch by large streams whose courses were doubtless diverted from time to time by the continental glaciers. These valleys are now occupied only by very small creeks.

Geology of Big Horn County and the Crow Indian Reservation, Montana: with Special Reference to the Water, Coal, Oil and Gas Resources

Description: From introduction: This report contains information concerning the geology of Big Horn County and the Crow Indian Reservation and their resources in ground water, coal, oil, and gas. These facts were collected in the course of studies for about a dozen field projects, which ranged in character from reconnaissance studies of large areas to very detailed mapping of certain tracts to show the occurrence of oil and gas. Consequently, the information at hand, either as to the geology or the resources, is not equally complete and definite for all parts.

The Paleozoic Section in the Vicinity of Three Forks, Montana

Description: From introduction: The Three Forks sheet of Montana includes the area lying between the parallels of 450 and 460, and extending from longitude 111 to 1120. The three forks of the Missouri river unite in the north central portion of this area about 5 miles south of the northern line of the map.

Geology of the Castle Mountain Mining District, Montana

Description: From preface: This memoir is a general study of the region described, and not a detailed report. The field work upon which it is based formed a part of the work of mapping the areal geology of the Little Belt Mountains sheet of the Geological Survey. The topographic map, made in 1882 by the Northern Transcontinental Survey, is too small in scale and too general in character to warrant more detailed work; but as the facts obtained are of interest, and the region is one of economic importance, it has been considered worthy of a special treatment.
