Tectonic Map of Wyoming, East of the Overthrust Belt, Showing the Distribution of Uranium Deposits

Description: From introduction: The compilation of the tectonic map of Wyoming east of the overthrust belt (area 6, fig. 2) was done by the U. S. Geological Survey on behalf of the Division of Raw Materials of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission. Structures shown on the map have been obtained from published geologic maps and from unpublished data supplied by Government agencies, private companies, and independent geologists. The tectonic map of Wyoming east of the overthrust belt is only a progress report; any suggestions for corrections or additions will be appreciated.

Preliminary Report of the Results of Reconnaissance for Uraniferous Materials in the Powder River Basin, Wyoming

Description: From introduction: During three months of the summer of 1952, a geologic and radiometric reconnaissance examination for uraniferous materials in the peripheral parts of the Powder River structural basin in northeastern Wyoming (fig. 1) was made by the Survey on behalf of the Division of Raw Materials of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission. The purpose was to find, describe, locate, and sample deposits of uraniferous or radioactive materials other than those in the central part of the Powder River Basin in the general vicinity of the Pumpkin Buttes.

Reconnaissance for Uranium in the Powder River Basin, Wyoming

Description: Abstract: A reconnaissance was made of a large part of the Powder River Basin, Wyoming, during the summer of 1952 to search for uranium deposits in parts of the basin other than the Pumpkin Buttes area. No uranium deposits of economic interest were found, but some rocks of the Tertiary Fort Union formation and the Cretaceous Inyan Kara group were found to be sufficiently uraniferous to justify further search in rocks of these units. Analyses of samples of sandstones, baked shales, and siltstones taken during the reconnaissance show these rocks are considerably more vanadiferous than the average sandstone, or clay and shale.

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.

Basic data for thermal springs and wells as recorded in GEOTHERM: Wyoming

Description: GEOTHERM sample file contains 356 records for Wyoming. 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 Wyoming. 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.

UMTRA Project Water Sampling and Analysis Plan, Spook, Wyoming

Description: Surface remedial action is complete at the Spook Uranium Mill Tailings Remedial Action Project site in Wyoming. Based on an evaluation of site characterization data, the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, US Department of Energy, and state of Wyoming have concurred in the determination that a program to monitor ground water is not required because ground water in the uppermost aquifer is Class 3 (limited use) (40 CFR 192.21(g)(1993)).
