Radioactivity Reconnaissance of Part of North-Central Clear Creek County, Front Range, Colorado

Description: Report discussing an investigation of radioactivity in part of Clear Creek County, Front Range, Colorado. The methods and results of the reconnaissance are included. Veins containing chalcopyrite were found to be the best source of radioactivity in the region.

Airborne Reconnaissance Project, Ruby Range and Sweetwater Basin, Montana

Description: Abstract: A low-level airborne radioactivity survey of parts of Beaverhead and Madison Counties in southwestern Montana was undertaken from June 6 to October 14, 1955. Flying centered around the Ruby Range-Sweetwater Basin area and concentrated on the Precambrian metamorphic complex and Tertiary lake-bed sediments. No commercial uranium deposits were discovered, and no extensions were found of the few known small occurrences. Five areas of high background detected through the survey were investigated on the ground.

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.

Reconnaissance for Radioactivity in the Metal-Mining Districts of the San Juan Mountains, Colorado

Description: Report discussing the U.S. Geological Survey's reconnaissance for radioactivity in thirty-four metal-mining districts of the San Juan Mountains, Colorado during 1951-1953. General geology of the area, methods of reconnaissance, and results of the reconnaissance are included.

Reconnaissance for a Uranothorianite-Bearing Lode in the Vicinity of the Headwaters of the Peace River, Candle Quadrangle, Seward Peninsula, Alaska

Description: From abstract: Reconnaissance in 1947 found uranothorianite and gummite associated with copper sulfides, iron oxides, molybdenite, gold, silver, bismuth, and thorite in placers of a headwater tributary of the Peace River in the eastern part of the Seward Peninsula, Alaska. Brief radiometric reconnaissance early in the summer of 1952 failed to locate the bedrock source of the radioactive minerals at the head of the Peace River, primarily because of the shielding-effect of widespread tundra cover. The samples obtained in 1952 indicate the presence of galena, sphalerite, pyrrhotite, covellite, and fluorite in addition to the minerals reported in the results of the 1947 reconnaissance.

Preliminary Summary of Reconnaissance for Uranium in Arizona

Description: From introduction: A reconnaissance of Arizona uranium deposits was started in October 1950 and continued through April 1951. A total of six man--months was spent by H. C. Granger, E. P. Kaiser, and J. W. Adams. About 40 properties were examined and, of these, six were mapped by plane-table method and six were sketch-mapped. This reconnaissance was not intended as a complete evaluation of all Arizona deposits; other areas and occurrences were not examined during the investigations and are not discussed in this report.

Radioactivity and Mineralogy of Placer Concentrates from the Wiseman and Chandalar Districts, Upper Yukon Region, Northeastern Alaska

Description: From introduction: The purpose of this report is to present the results of the radiometric and mineralogic study of 19 samples from the Wiseman and Chandalar districts which are available in the Geological Survey's Alaskan collections. This work was done on behalf of the Division of Raw Materials of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission.

Preliminary Results of Radiometric Reconnaissance of Parts of the Northwestern San Juan Mountains, Gunnison, Ouray, San Juan, San Miguel, and Dolores Counties, Colorado

Description: From abstract: A reconnaissance radiometric survey of parts of the northwestern San Juan Mountains has revealed the occurrence of uranium-bearing ores in several mining districts in Ouray and San Juan Counties, and the occurrence of thorium-bearing veins in southwestern Gunnison County.

Airborne Radioactivity Surveys in the Mojave Desert Region, Kern, Riverside, and San Bernardino Counties, California

Description: From abstract: Airborne radioactivity surveys in the Mojave Desert region, Kern, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties were made in five areas recommended as favorable for the occurrence of radioactive raw materials: (1) Rock Corral area, San Bernardino County. (2) Searles Station area, Kern County. (3) Soledad area, Kern County, (4) White Tank area, Riverside and San Bernardino counties. (5) Harvard Hills area, San Bernardino County. Anomalous radiation was detected in all but the Harvard Hills area.

Reconnaissance for Radioactive Minerals in the Southern Part of Brazil

Description: From introduction: This report describes the results of reconnaissance for radioactivity of rocks, exclusive of coal, in the States of Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Parana, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul during the years 195 through 1956. Reports on reconnaissance and detailed studies of uraniferous coal are being prepared for publication. This report concerns work performed by the Brazilian National Nuclear Energy Commission and the United States Geological Survey (on behalf of the United States Atomic Energy Commission), and it is published with the permission of these agencies.

Geologic and Radiometric Reconnaissance Along the San Juan and Colorado Rivers Between Mexican Hat, Utah, and Lees Ferry Arizona

Description: Abstract: Ten days were spent during June 1955, examining the sedimentary rocks along the San Juan and Colorado Rivers between Mexican Hat, Utah, and Lee's Ferry, Arizona. The most favorable area for uranium deposits occurs in the Shinarump member of the Chinle formation between Clay Hills Crossing and Spencer Camp along the San Juan River. Mineralization is spotty and deposits are small and almost all below ore-grade. Only one small mine, the Whirlwind, is currently producing ore. Gray-green alteration of the underlying Moenkopi is moderately developed in the vicinity of the Whirlwind mine; elsewhere alteration is weakly developed.

Reconnaissance for Radioactivity in the Gold Hill Mining Area, Boulder County, Colorado, Part 1

Description: Abstract: Several radioactive deposits were found as a result of reconnaissance in the Gold Hill mining area, Boulder County, Colo. The ore deposits of the area have been worked chiefly for gold. All ore shipped has come from fissure veins, most of which are gold telluride veins. There are, however, some important sulfide veins which show a vague zonal distribution of pyritic gold ores and silverlead ores. The results of this reconnaissance suggest a possible relationship of the radioactive deposits to this indistinct sulfide zoning; however, the zoning is so obscure that its practical application to prospecting for uranium is of doubtful value at the present time. Pitchblende, torbernite, metatorbernite, and schroeckingerite have been identified in specimens from the area; however, no uranium minerals have yet been identified from most of the radioactive deposits, and the uraniferous material present is probably in disseminated small particles. Although selected samples from several localities assay 0.10 percent uranium or more, the known deposits are small and probably are not of immediate economic importance
