Terminology for Stratification and Cross-Stratification in Sedimentary Rock

Description: From abstract: "A terminology is suggested for stratified and cross-stratified rock units that will aid the field geologist in describing these structures... A classification of cross-stratification based primarily on the character of the lower bounding surface of a set of cross-strata is suggested."

Distribution of Ore Deposits and Spectrographic Analyses of Some Rocks and Ores on the Colorado Plateau

Description: Report discussing an investigation of rocks and ores found on the Colorado Plateau. These studies were conducted in order to determine distribution of elements and the various relationships of ore deposits and igneous rocks.

Conditions of the Formation of Fluorite in Sedimentary Rocks (The Fluorite System)

Description: From translator's abstract: "The formation of fluorite in sedimentary rocks has been investigated by studies of fluorite equilibria in different solutions. Determinations at different temperatures were made on the solubility of crystalline CaF2 in chemically pure water, in aqueous solutions of components of seat water...at different concentrations, and in the sea water itself at degrees of salinity varying from normal to a 15-fold concentration."

The Fluorapatite System of Equilibria in the Conditions of Formation of Sedimentary Rocks

Description: From translator's abstract: "As part of unified research on the behavior of the fluoride ion in sedimentary rocks, the present study deals with the system CaO-P2O5-HF-H20 at 25 degrees C. under conditions of sea sedimentation. The precipitated phases, their fields of crystallization and stability, the fluorine-phosphorus coefficient, and the isomorphism of fluorhydroxl ions in the apatite lattice are considered and illustrated by orthogonal projections."

Stratigraphy of Middle Tertiary Rocks in Part of West-Central Florida

Description: The following report presents the results of part of a geologic study of the phosphate deposits in central Florida. The purpose of the investigative research done in Florida is to determine the geologic history of the phosphate deposits and associated sediments, in order that the distribution of phosphate and uranium will be more clearly understood.

The Ancient Volcanic Rocks of South Mountain, Pennsylvania

Description: From introduction: In December, 1892, as the result of field work on the part of Dr. G. H. Williams in the northern and of the writer in the southern portion of South Mountain, there appeared a preliminary description of two of the rock types, in which their identification as ancient volcanics was announced. In this bulletin it is proposed to substantiate that identification with more detailed proof. It is further proposed to show that these ancient igneous rocks were, at the time of their consolidation, identical in character with their recent volcanic analogues, and that their present differences are due to subsequent changes, chief among which has been devitrification. It is also proposed to recognize these facts in the nomenclature.

Lead-Alpha Age Determinations of Granitic Rocks from Alaska

Description: Abstract: "Lead-alpha activity age determinations were made on zircon from seven granitic rocks of central and southeastern Alaska. The results of the age determinations indicate two periods of igneous intrusion, one about 95 million years ago, during the Cretaceous period, and another about 53 million years ago, during the early part of the Tertiary. The individual ages determined on zircon from 2 rocks from southeastern Alaska and 1 from east-central Alaska gave results of 90, 100, and 96 million years; those determined on 4 rocks from central Alaska gave results of 47, 56, 58, and 51 million years."

Geological Study of Uranium Potential of the Kingston Peak Formation, Death Valley Region, California: Final Report

Description: From introduction: Our particular interest in the uranium potential of the Proterozoic quartz-pebble and quartzite-pebble conglomerates of the Kingston Peak Formation has been based upon: 1. Known uranium occurrences of low to intermediate grade in a peliticarkosic sulfide-bearing unit near the base of the formation; the "Favorable Submember" of this report. 2. Uranium occurrences and widespread anomalies in underlying Proterozoic granitic-metamorphic rocks, including the World Beater Complex, within and bordering the basin in which the conglomerates were deposited. 3. Reported minor shows of uranium associated with extensive anomalous radioactivity in the conglomerates themselves.

Progress Report on Geologic Studies in the Capitol Reef Area, Wayne County, Utah

Description: From abstract: During 1951 about 60 square miles of the Capitol Reef area, Wayne County, Utah, the northern end of the Waterpocket Fold, was mapped by plane-table methods on a scale of 1:62, 500. Formations, with an approximate aggregate thickness of 3, 200 feet, range from the Coconino sandstone of Permian age to the Navajo sandstone of Jurassic (?) age. About 35 linear miles of Shinarump conglomerate of Triassic age was examined in detail. Cliffs 900 to 1, 000 feet high form the west face of Capitol Reef, which is on the east and northeast flanks of a structural and topographic dome, The uranium deposits are in the basal part of the Shinarump conglomerate. Zippeite and metatorbernite are the uranium minerals found, and are associated with copper minerals, carbonaceous matter, clay beds, a thick bleached zone at the top of the Moenkopi formation, and channels or scours in the top of the Moenkopi. The highest radioactivity is in a clay bed at the base of the Shinarump conglomerate, and was detected at 7 localities between Grand Wash and Capitol Gorge, at the Birch Spring prospect in Moonie Draw, and at the Oyler mine in Grand Wash.

Underground Research Laboratories for Crystalline Rock and Sedimentary Rock in Japan

Description: The Japan Nuclear Cycle Development Institute (JNC) has started two off-site (generic) underground research laboratory (URL) projects, one for crystalline rock as a fractured media and the other for sedimentary rock as a porous media. This paper introduces an overview and current status of these projects.

Research on the physical properties of geothermal reservoir rock. Annual report, September 1, 1977

Description: Measurements have been made of the electrical resistivity, the acoustic wave speed, density, and water content of six groups of rock samples taken from Cenozoic volcanic units. It has been found from these measurements that the correlations between physical properties are significantly different in the case of volcanic rocks than in the case of sandstones and limestones. For a given porosity and water content, the resistivity of a volcanic rock is several fold greater than that of a sandstone or limestone. Also, there is a weaker correlation between acoustic wave speed and porosity in volcanic rocks than in sandstones and limestones. The effect of temperature on the properties of these rocks appears to be predictable from fundamental considerations to temperatures as high as 100/sup 0/C.
