Geology and Mineral Resources of North-Central Chouteau, Western Hill, and Eastern Liberty Counties, Montana

Description: From abstract: This report describes a rectangular area of about 2,600 square miles in Chouteau, Hill, and Liberty Counties, Mont., adjacent to the international boundary. The area is a portion of the Missouri Plateau, a section of the Great Plains province, and lies between the Highwood Mountains, Bearpaw Mountains, and Sweetgrass Hills, of north-central Montana. The southern part of the area is drained by the Missouri River and its tributary Marias River, but the northern part is drained by the Milk River. These streams are trenched in narrow valleys several hundred feet deep. The land surface between them is a rolling plain interrupted by very broad, shallow valleys that probably were eroded during the Pleistocene epoch by large streams whose courses were doubtless diverted from time to time by the continental glaciers. These valleys are now occupied only by very small creeks.

Potential Effects of Surface Coal Mining on the Hydrology of the Snider Creek Area, Rosebud and Ashland Coal Fields, Southeastern Montana

Description: From abstract: The Snider Creek area of the Rosebud and Ashland coal fiends contains strippable reserves of Federal coal that have been identified for potential lease sale. A hydrologic study has been conducted in the potential lease area to describe the existing hydrologic systems and to assess potential impacts of surface coal mining on local water resources.

The Forsyth Coal Field: Rosebud, Treasure, and Big Horn Counties, Montana

Description: From introduction: acknowledgements.-The Forsyth field was examined to collect data upon which to classify the public land included in it with regard to its value as coal land. The geologic mapping was done with the plane table and telescopic alidade, and all locations were tied to land corners.

The Ashland Coal Field, Rosebud, Powder River, and Custer Counties, Montana

Description: From introduction: The detailed information concerning the coal deposits of the Ashland field set forth in this report has been obtained in the course of an investigation that has been conducted both as a part of the United States Geological Survey's general systematic study of western coal lands and as an aid in the administration of the public lands. With the information obtained on the location of outcrops, the number, distribution, and thickness of coal beds, the accessibility of the coal, and the thickness of the overburden, the public lands of the region are classified as to their coal value; coal-bearing lands are differentiated from noncoal-bearing lands; and the administration of the coal-land leasing law is facilitated.

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

Description: "This report contains data collected during a geochemical survey for uranium in the Lewistown National Topographic Map Series (NTMS) quadrangle of Montana (Fig. 1) by the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (LASL) as part of the nationwide Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance (HSSR). [...] The HSSR program is part of the United States Department of Energy's (DOE) National Uranium Resource Evaluation (NURE), which is designed to provide an improved estimate of the availability and economics of nuclear fuel resources and to make available to industry information for use in the development and production of uranium resources" (p. 1).

Eastern and Central Montana as a Possible Source Area of Uranium

Description: From abstract: Geologic settings are recognized in central and eastern Montana and in a few places in southwestern Montana that elsewhere are similar to the settings for the occurrence of uranium deposits. Several specific areas in Montana seem favorable for the occurrence of uranium.

Tectonic Map of Eastern Montana Showing the Distribution of Uranium Deposits

Description: From introduction: A tectonic map for the northern part of the Cordilleran Foreland was compiled to aid in establishing the geologic setting of uranium deposits within the region, and to determine what relationships, if any, exist between the distribution of uranium deposits and localities, and the regional tectonic pattern (Osterwald, 1955). The relationships might suggest new areas favorable for the discovery of uranium deposits in the Cordilleran Foreland as well as in other areas with similar tectonic history. The map will show the distribution of crest lines and troughs of folds, faults, uranium deposits and localities, and areas of volcanic activity. Outcrop areas of Precambrian and post-Eocene rocks are shown to designate the relative age of structures. Where possible the Precambrian rocks are subdivided into structural types, so that their influence on younger deformations may be inferred. The map of eastern Montana is one of a series being prepared before the final map is assembled (fig. 1.).

Montana: basic data for thermal springs and wells as recorded in GEOTHERM

Description: GEOTHERM sample file contains 225 records for Montana. Three computer-generated indexes are found in appendices A, B, and C of this report. The indexes give one line summaries of each GEOTHERM record describing the chemistry of geothermal springs and wells in the sample file for Montana. Each index is sorted by different variables to assist the user in locating geothermal records describing specific sites. Appendix A is sorted by the county name and the name of the source. Also given are latitude, longitude (both use decimal minutes), township, range, section, GEOTHERM record identifier, and temperature (/sup 0/C). Appendix B is sorted by county, township, range, and section. Also given are name of source, GEOTHERM record identifier, and temperature (/sup 0/C). Appendix C is first sorted into one-degree blocks by latitude, and longitude, and then by name of source. Adjacent one-degree blocks which are published as a 1:250,000 map are combined under the appropriate map name. Also given are GEOTHERM record identifier, and temperature (/sup 0/C). A bibliography is given in Appendix D.

Lessons From the Granite Mountain Shaft Fire, Butte

Description: On the night of June 8, 1917, the flame of a carbide lamp accident set fire to the uncovered and frayed insulation of an armored power cable near the 2,400-foot level of the North Butte Mining Co.'s Granite Mountain shaft. How this insulation accidentally became exposed is explained on page 15. The following pages present an attempt to draw some practical conclusions and suggestions from this disaster."
