Uranium in the Dirty Devil Shimarump Channel Deposit

Description: From abstract: Uranium ores occur in a river channel deposit of composite type. Uranium and its daughter elements segregate during migration and each has its own accumulator. The entire deposit stays close to radioactive equilibrium but individual mineral components have departures up to 1000 fold.

Geological Investigation of the Trachyte District, Henry Mountains, Utah

Description: Abstract: Uranium-vanadium ore has long been known in the Trachyte district. Production started in 1913 and has been erratic and intermittent to date. Until recently, practically all production from the Henry Mountains area has come from the Trachyte district.

Structure and Stratigraphy of Upper Cretaceous and Paleogene Strata (North Horn Formation), Eastern San Pitch Mountains, Utah: Sedimentation at the Front of the Sevier Orogenic Belt

Description: From abstract: This report describes the North Horn Formation in the eastern part of the San Pitch Mountains of Utah was deposited in nonmarine environments that included alluvial fans, varied fluvial and overbank settings, and lacustrine settings.

Late Paleozoic Structure of the Southern Part of the Uinta Basin, Utah, From Seismic Reflection Data

Description: From abstract: Seismic reflection data from the southern part of the Uinta basin near Price, Utah reveal a network of late Paleozoic faults that produced abrupt variations in stratigraphic thicknesses in a structurally complex 30-mi-wide northwest-southeast-trending trough.

Stratigraphy and Microfaunas of the Oquirrh Group in the Southern East Tintic Mountains, Utah

Description: Abstract: The Oquirrh Group of Pennsylvanian and Permian age in the southern East Tintic Mountains, Utah, is more than 15,000 feet (4,572 m) thick and consists of an incomplete section of the West Canyon Limestone (Morrowan) 960 feet (293 m) thick, a nearly complete section of the Butterfield Peaks Formation (Atokan(?) and Des Moinesian) about 5,800 feet (1,768 m) thick, a complete section of the Bingham Mine Formation (Missourian) 3,200-3,400 feet thick (975-1,036 m), and a complete section of the newly named Furner Valley Limestone (Missourian to Wolfcampian) 5,000-6,000 feet (1,524-1,829 m) thick. The formations below the Furner Valley Limestone are generally similar to their counterparts in their type areas in the central and southern Oquirrh Mountains but are somewhat thinner and less arenaceous. The Furner Valley Limestone, more than 90 percent carbonate, is apparently unique. Strata of the same age in the Wasatch, Stansbury, Cedar, Hogup, and Promontory Mountains in Utah are all considerably arenaceous; in the southern Oquirrh Mountains in the upper plate of the Midas thrust fault they have been largely removed by erosion. The Oquirrh Group in the East Tintic Mountains is overlain by the Diamond Creek Sandstone; the latter, in turn, is overlain by the Park City Formation. No units lithologically resembling the Kirkman Limestone of the Wasatch Mountains are recognized. Fusulinids are common in the Butterfield Peaks and Bingham Mine Formations and are present throughout the Furner Valley Limestone. The faunas are comparable to those of the Oquirrh Group in the Oquirrh and Cedar Mountains to the west and in the Wasatch Mountains to the east.

Oxidized Zinc Deposits of the United States: Part 2. Utah

Description: From introduction: This report is compiled from fieldwork and available published data on the oxidized zinc deposits of Utah. Most of the deposits were examined by the author during the autumns of 1952-55 as part of a general study of oxidized zinc deposits of the Western States. In addition, several deposits were visited by geologists of the U.S. Geological Survey as a part of mineral investigation studies since 1940. In the process of obtaining this information many mining companies and individuals have been consulted.

Investigation of Subsurface Isorad Methods, Temple Mountain, San Rafael District, Utah

Description: From abstract: The subsurface isorad method is an attempt to locate areas favorable for uranium ores by the use of contour maps which show localities having greater radioactivity. The construction of isorad maps entails the measurement of the area under the curve of a gamma-ray logo The figures obtained indicate relative amounts of gamma radiation and are used to locate the isorad contours. This work was started at Temple Mountain in the San Rafael Swell area during the spring of 1952. The purpose of this investigation is to determine the most effective and economic hole spacing for subsurface isorad work.

[Evolution of Sedimentary Basins--Uinta and Piceance Basins: Chapters J and K]

Description: From abstract: This is a report on reconnaissance geologic mapping and isotopic dating of tuff beds in the Uinta Basin of Utah that show that Lake Uinta probably persisted into late Eocene time in the area east of Duchesne and Strawberry Reservoir.

Hydrology of Coal-Resource Areas in the Southern Wasatch Plateau, Central Utah

Description: From purpose and scope: The hydrology of coal-resource areas in the southern Wasatch Plateau in central Utah (fig. 1) was studied by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. The study area contains large coal reserves, and much of the area was unleased for mining in 1980. In general, study objectives were to define the surface- and ground-water hydrology and to predict, where possible, the effects of coal mining on the hydrologic system. Watersheds and aquifers that were the sole source of supply for public use were to be identified. The objectives were designed to provide the hydrologic information needed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management to make sound decisions concerning the leasing of Federal lands for coal mining.

Methods for Estimating Peak Discharge and Flood Boundaries of Streams in Utah

Description: From introduction: This report contains methods for estimating peak discharges and flood boundaries of streams in Utah. The peak-discharge information can be used for a wide variety of projects ranging from the design of bridges, culverts, dams, and embankments to detailed flood-plain and flood-insurance studies based on complex hydraulic characteristics of the stream and valley. The equations for estimating flood depth can be used for a simple, rapid approximation of flood-prone areas.

Geology and Ore Deposits of the Park City District, Utah

Description: From introduction: This survey was the first systematic work undertaken in this geologic province since the Geological Exploration of the Fortieth Parallel, in 1869, and was the first detailed geologic examination of a wide area in the Wasatch Range. Hence, an unusual amount of general geologic work in the region surrounding the special field was required to establish fundamental geologic facts.
