Uranium in the Chattanooga Shale, Youngs Bend Area, Eastern Highland Rim, Tennessee

Description: The following report covers a diamond drilling project in December 1952 that was started in order to obtain geologic and mining information and samples of uranium-bearing Chattanooga shale in the Youngs Bend area, near Smithville, Tennessee. This report presents uranium content discovered within the mines.

The Chattanooga Shale of Tennessee as a Source of Uranium: Final Report

Description: From major objective: The over-all aim of the study has been to obtain a thorough geologic picture of the Chattanooga shale in the area under consideration, with emphasis upon stratigraphic relationships and associated special problems from which, in turn, implications may be obtained as to the origin and age of the formation and possibly the source of the uranium. The study has not been aimed primarily at exploration for uranium and its economic aspects.

Notes on Eastern Oil Shale Drilling

Description: Purpose: The primary objective of the eastern oil shale drilling was to obtain cores of the Chattanooga shale, from considerable depths and at long distances from its outcrops. Correlation of the cores with outcrop samples showed the effect of weathering on the shale, as well as changes in the stratigraphy. Of secondary interest was acquisition of information on the stratigraphy of the overlying rocks.

Tennessee Williams as a Social Critic

Description: The purpose of this study is to examine the social criticism of Williams by careful analysis of six of his full length plays: The Glass Menagerie, A Streetcar Named Desire, Camino Real, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Suddenly Last Summer, and The Night of the Iguana. After the analyses of the plays, the final chapter of this study will deal with the playwright's comments on specific aspects of the social order and will not be confined to the six major plays under consideration.

Manganiferous and Ferruginous Chert in Perry and Lewis Counties, Tennessee

Description: From abstract: Perry and Lewis Counties, east of the Tennessee River, in west-middle Tennessee, are underlain by nearly flat-lying rocks of Paleozoic age, with Mississippian cherty limestones forming the greater part of the surface of the western Highland Rim Plateau ridges. Near the summits of the ridges there is a fairly definite horizon in the chert that contains manganese and iron oxides in varying degrees of concentration. Weathering of the mineralized chert has produced widespread float on the hill slopes and in the beds of small spring branches, and the presence of this float, some of it rich enough for metallurgical manganese ore, has encouraged a search for promising deposits in place. In the present study 52 localities where the mineralized beds crop out or have been prospected were examined.

Uranium Content of Chattanooga Shale in East-Central Tennessee and Southern Kentucky

Description: From abstract: Uranium assays of all the samples collected by the Geological Survey from the Chattanooga shale in east-central Tennessee and southern Kentucky from 1947 to 1949 are assembled here, and conclusions are drawn concerning the distribution of the uranium. The 1108 assays from 80 localities provide reasonably reliable information on the stratigraphic and regional variations of the uranium content.

Preliminary Basic Data Release: Ground Water in Winston-Salem 1° x 2° NTMS Area, North Carolina, Virginia, and Tennessee

Description: From abstract: This report presents preliminary results of stream sediment and ground water reconnaissance in the Greensboro National Topographic Map Series (NTMS) 1° x 2° quadrangle. Stream sediment samples were collected from small streams at 1240 sites for a nominal density of one site per 13 square kilometers (five square miles) in rural areas. Ground water samples were collected at 774 sites for a nominal density of one site per 25 square kilometers (ten square miles).

An Investigation of the Chattanooga Black Shale of Tennessee as a Source of Uranium Progress Report: July 1, 1956-June 30, 1957

Description: From introduction: The primary aim of this study is to present as complete a geologic picture as possible, of the Chattanooga shale in its outcrop area of the Eastern Highland Rim and the Northern Highland Rim of Tennessee and adjacent Kentucky. Special emphasis has been placed upon the stratigraphic relationships and their implications upon the age and manner of origin of the sediments and upon the origin, source, and distribution of uranium in the shale.

Division of Chemical Research and Development Progress Report Period Ending June 16, 1945

Description: A report about the ongoing work regarding density. Attention was directed toward the accurate ascertainment of the T losses involved in a process in which the partially dried peroxide is transferred from the sintered glass funnels to the gold boats, and in which the calcination is male from TO4 to T3OE under nitrogen in the green salt reactors.
