Preparation of Anhydrous Vanadium Trifluoride

Description: Report discussing a procedure for the preparation of anhydrous vanadium trifluoride. From abstract: "By selecting proper operating conditions and equipment, a method of preparation was devised such that anhydrous vanadium trifluoride of high purity was produced reliably in five pound batches." The method of preparation involves manipulating the starting material, vanadium pentoxide.

Development of an Ion Exchange Process for the Recovery of Vanadium

Description: A process for recovering vanadium from acid leach liquors by ion exchange using either columns or resin-in-pulp has been developed. The process is economically feasible, and operating techniques were developed which made the process practical from an operating standpoint. The theory, chemistry, and characteristics of the vanadium ion exchange process are fully discussed.

Memorandum Listing the Areas in Colorado, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico that are Geologically Favorable for Developing Large Reserves of Vanadium Ore by Prospecting

Description: Introduction: Vanadium ore is being mined at many places in western Colorado, southeastern Utah, northeastern Arizona, and northwestern New Mexico (fig. 1). Eight mills in this region produced about 4,300,000 pounds of V2 05 in 1942, representing about 90 percent of the vanadium obtained from domestic sources. Although ore production has mostly exceeded mill capacity since 1937, production during the last half of 1942 averaged only about 19,000 tons or ore a month, whereas the capacity of these mills total about 22,000 tons a month. At the expected rate of ore production, ore stockpiles will be exhausted sometime in 1944, and these mills will then have excess capacity. With more intensive prospecting than now practiced, however, it is believed that sufficient reserves can be indicated to sustain capacity operation of these mills for several years. This memorandum is prepared to specify those areas that are considered most favorable from a geologic standpoint for developing large reserves of vanadium ore by prospecting. It is based on intensive studies by the Geological Survey since 1939 in most of the areas that produce vanadium ore.

The Vanadium-Uranium Constitutional Diagram

Description: Abstract: "Vanadium-uranium equilibrium studies were made on alloys prepared from high-purity vanadium and good biscuit uranium. No intermetallic phases occur in the system. Additions of vanadium lover the uranium melting point and transformations producing a eutectic at 1240 +/- 5 C and eutectoid reactions at 727 +/- 5 and 652 +/- 5 C. The maximum solubility of uranium in vanadium is about 4 atomic per cent (15 weight per cent)."

Report on Reserves and Production Situation of Vanadiferous and Related Ores in Colorado Plateau Region

Description: From introduction: The general distribution of known deposits of vanadium-bearing sandstone, which also contain some uranium and radium, is shown in figure 1 1/ and Exhibit A, plate 53. 2/ During 1939-41 the Geological Survey made detailed geological studies of these deposits in the Uravan district, Montrose County, Colorado, as well as preliminary examinations in other parts of the Colorado Plateau vanadium region. In 1942 detailed geological studies were made o the deposits in the Egnar-Slick Rock district, San Miguel Co., Colo.; 3/ the Carrizo Moungains district, Navajo Indian Reservation, Arizona and New Mexico; 4/ the Placerville district, San Miguel County, Colo. 5/ and the Monticello district, San Juan Co., Utah. 6/ Since May 3, 1943, the Gelogical Survey has guided the Bureau of Mines program of prospecting these deposits in parts of Colorado and Utah.

The Crystal Structures of Three New Vanadium Oxide Minerals

Description: This report analyzes the characteristics of three vanadium-uranium ores of the Colorado Plateau by prevalence of a number of low-valence vanadium oxide minerals, usually occurring as fine-grained mixtures. The ores being analyzed are haggite, doloresite, and duttonite.

Spectrographic Determination of Vanadium in TF₄

Description: "In order to determine low concentrations of vanadium in TF₄ spectrographically, an investigation was conducted to ascertain conditions necessary for a reproducible procedure. The study was made to find a method of direct analysis of TF₄ to eliminate the time factor of any error introduced by the conversion of TF₄ to T₃O₈. All available methods of excitation were investigated."

Carnotite Resources of San Miguel Bench, Montrose County, Colorado

Description: Abstract: San Miguel bench includes about 4 square miles in the southern part of T. 48 N., R. 17 W., New Mexico principal meridian, Montrose County, Colorado. Production of carnotite ore from the area has been about 15, 000 short tons having an estimated average graderof 0. 31 percent U3O8,and 1. 6 percent V2 05 Nearly all of the carnotite deposits occur in a single-continuous sandstone bed near the top of the Salt Wash member of the Jurassic Morrison formation. These deposits consist chiefly of sandstone impregnated with uranium- and vanadium-bearing minerals. They are irregular tabular-shaped masses ranging in size from a few short tons to 30, 000 short tons or more of minable carnotite ore. During the period November 27, 1951, to April 17, 1953, the U. S. Geological Survey drilled 309 holes totaling 92, 194 feet on the San Miguel bench. Reserves total about 43, 000 short tons of material 1 foot or more thick and contain 0,.10 percent or more U30 or 1. 0 percent or more V205. Of these reserves 3, 300 short tons occur in private land. These reserves are in ten deposits found by Geological Survey drilling. Potential reserves (reserves based on geologic evidence only) are predicted to total about 15, 000 short tons, averaging 0.30 percent U308 and 1.6 percent V2 05 No additional exploration drilling in the San Miguel bench is planned by the Geological Survey. Some drilling by private enterprise is recommended.
