Geology of Carnotite-Bearing Sandstone in the Uravan and Gateway Districts, Montrose and Mesa Counties, Colorado, and Grand County, Utah

Description: From Introduction: "In the Uravan and Gateway districts, the general character of the bedding in the ore-bearing sandstone and amount of alteration in associated mudstones, and the relation of these to each other, are the features most useful as large-scale guides. This report describes these features and their distribution, as well as some other significant geologic characteristics of the ore-bearing sandstone."

Sources of the Elements in thh Sandstone-Type Uranium Deposits of the Colorado Plateau

Description: The following report covers a broad-scale study of the distribution of elements in the rocks and ores of the Colorado Plateau. Discussed here are the results from semiquantitative spectrographic analyses of approximately 800 samples of rocks and ores that form the principal starting point for the discussion. This paper examines the relevance of the results of the study of the distribution of elements to the special problem of the source or sources of the elements contained in unusual abundance in the sandstone-type uranium ores.

Map Showing Cumulative Thickness of Sandstone in the Fox Hills-Lower Hell Creek Aquifer, Montana

Description: Introduction: In 1978, the U.S. Geological Survey began a 4-year study of aquifers in the northern Great Plains. The purpose of this map, which is a product of that study, is to show the cumulative thickness of sandstone in the Fox Hills-lower Hell Creek aquifer. Other maps show the altitude of the top (Feltis, 1982a), total thickness (Feltis, 1982b), and potentiometric surface of water (Levings, 1982) of the Fox Hills-lower Hell Creek aquifer. These maps are part of a series that describes the geology and potentiometric surface of selected rock units of Jurassic or younger age in the plains area of Montana.
