The Significance of Geologic Conditions in Naval Petroleum Reserves No. 3, Wyoming

Description: From Introduction: The work on which this report is based consisted of detailed field and office studies which occupied the greater part of the summer of 1927. During this period mapping was done with plane table and telescopic alidade on a scale of 1 inch to 1,000 feet, and wells, faults, and outcrops within the productive part of the Teapot field were located in detail.

[Wyoming Uranium Evaluation] Volume 1: A Summary of the Geology and Uranium Potential of Precambrian Conglomerates in Southeastern Wyoming

Description: From deposit: Since 1975 a cooperative effort between the United States Department of Energy, United States Geological Survey, Geological Survey of Wyoming, the Geology Department, University of Wyoming, and various industry groups has resulted in the discovery of a series of uraniumthorium-and gold-bearing conglomerates in Late Archean and Early Proterozoic metasedimentary rocks of southern Wyoming. The mineral deposits were found by applying the time and strata bound model for the origin of uranium-bearing quartz-pebble conglomerates to favorable rock types within a geologic terrane known from prior regional mapping.

[Wyoming Uranium Evaluation] Volume 3: Uranium Assessment for the Precambrian Pebble Conglomerates in Southeastern Wyoming

Description: From introduction: The Geology Department of the University of Wyoming was asked to make a geostatistical assessment of the uranium endowment of these deposits as a part of the World Class core drilling operations of the Bendix Field Engineering Corporation. This study was to include (a) the development of optimum geostatistical methodology for assessing uranium endowment in areas of close drill control (1 mile or less centers) as well as in areas of distant drill control (5 mile centers or more), (.b) the implementation of this methodology in assessing the uranium resources of the pebble conglomerates in southeastern Wyoming, and (c) the determination of the overall geostatistical uncertainty of the resource estimates. In addition, methods were to be studied for projecting the assessments into new areas, including prediction of estimate uncertainty.

Limnology of Yellowstone Lake in Relation to the Cutthroat Trout

Description: Limnological data collected from 1954 to 1959 on surface currents, bottom currents, temperatures, bottom soils, water chemistry, plankton, bottom fauna, and higher aquatic plants are related to the biology of the cutthroat trout, Salmo clarki lewisi, in Yellowstone Lake (Wyoming). The lake, formed on Eocene lava, is oliotrophic and low in dissolved solids. Diatomus shoshone, Daphnia shoedleri, and Conochilus unicornis made up more than 90 percent of the macroscopic zooplankton by number. Upwelling in West Thumb was demonstrated by temperature stratification and conductivities. Plankton distribution and abundance were related to currents and water chemistry. Trout less than 315 millimeters in total length are not caught readily because of their feeding habits and greater dispersal. There is evidence that the heavy trout harvest in the northern part of the lake allowed Gammarus lacustris, an important food, to become locally abundant.

Uranium Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance Data Release for the Cody NTMS Quadrangle, Wyoming, Including Concentrations of Forty-Two Additional Elements

Description: "This report contains data for samples collected during a geochemical survey for uranium in the Cody National Topographic Map Series (NTMS) quadrangle, Wyoming, by the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (LASL) as part of the nationwide Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance (HSSR). [...] Totals of 627 water and 1482 sediment samples were collected from 1529 locations at a nominal density of one location per 10 km2. Water samples were collected from streams, springs, and wells, and sediment samples were collected from streams and springs. Most samples were collected by two private contractors in the summers of 1976 and 1977" (p. 1).

Uranophane at Silver Cliff Mine, Lusk, Wyoming

Description: Abstract: The uranium deposit at the Silver Cliff mine near Lusk, Wyo., consists primarily of uranophane which occurs as fracture fillings and small replacement pockets in faulted and fractured calcareous sandstone of Cambrian(?) age. The country rock in the vicinity of the mine is schist of pre-Cambrian age intruded by pegmatite dikes and is unconformably overlain by almost horizontal sandstone of Cambrian(?) age. The mine is on the southern end of the Lusk Dome, a local structure probably related to the Hartville uplift. In the immediate vicinity of the mine, the dome is cut by the Silver Cliff fault, a north-trending high-angle reverse fault about 1,200 feet in length with a stratigraphic throw of 70 feet. Uranophane, metatorbernite, pitchblende, calcite, native silver, native copper, chalcocite, azurite, malachite, chrysocolla, and cuprite have been deposited in fractured sandstone. The fault was probably mineralized throughout its length, but because of erosion, the mineralized zone is discontinuous. The principal ore body is about 800 feet long. The width and depth of the mineralized zone are not accurately known but are at least 20 feet and 60 feet respectively. The uranium content of material sampled in the mine ranges from 0.001 to 0.23 percent uranium, whereas dump samples range from 0.076 to 3.39 percent uranium.

Geology and Uranium Occurrences in the Miller Hill Area, Carbon County, Wyoming

Description: Abstract: Uranium occurs in the North Park(?) formation of Pliocene(?) age in the Miller Hill area, about 25 miles south of Rawlins, Carbon County, Wyo. As much as 0. 5 percent uranium is contained in grab samples, but only about 1000 tons of rock are known to contain as much as 0. 03 percent uranium. Beds of brecciated, silicified limestone 3 to 10 feet thick contain the principal concentrations of uranium. Lesser concentrations are found in calcareous sandstone and quartzite. Uranophane, Ca(UOz)2SizO 7 . 6HZO, the principal uranium'mineral, has been deposited in vugs, as fracture and surface coatings, and as a disseminated constituent of the rock. Uranium also occurs in quantities too small to be megascopically visible in dark-colored chalcedony, lime stone, sandstone, and quartzite beds.

Preliminary Report on Uranium-Bearing Pliocene (?) Rocks in the Split Rock Area, Central Wyoming

Description: From abstract: A sequence of slightly radioactive Pliocene(?) rocks in the Split Rock area of central Wyoming is at least 600 feet thick, underlies an area of more than 25 square miles, and consists of alternating beds of tuffaceous shale, sandstone, and pumicite. Only a small part of the section has been examined. In addition to the uranium content of the strata, there has been secondary concentration of uranium in brecciated limestone similar to spring deposits that could be of Pliocene or Pleistocene age.

Preliminary Report on Lost Creek Schroeckingerite Area, Sweetwater County, Wyoming

Description: Introduction: This report is a summary of the field work at the Lost Creek schroeckingerite deposit, Sweetwater County, Wyo. from July 1 through November 22, 1952. The objectives of field work at Lost Creek during the report period were to obtain additional data for calculating tonnage and grade and to obtain additional information on the controls and localization of schroeckingerite. In order to accomplish these objectives the Survey continued the exploration by means of trenching, mapped all trench walls (scale 1:120), mapped the exploration area at scales of 1:2400 and 1:9600, and carried on an extensive sampling program.
