Reconnaissance of Red Rock Valley, Apache County, Arizona

Description: Abstract: Reconnaissance of Red Rock Valley was begun on December 10, 1953, and completed on February 11, 1954. The mines in the region were investigated and all exposures of Salt Wash were walked. Paleostream directions and alterations of the sandstones were observed and recorded on a base map. No important new mineralization was discovered-and the area is considered to be of no commercial significance if judged by the outcrops alone. However, a vast amount of Salt Wash lies at slight depth directly to the east of the investigated area.

Report on Wagon Drilling for Uranium in the Silver Reef (Harrisburg) District, Washington County, Utah: Part 1

Description: Abstract: An exploratory wagon drilling program was conducted from May 2, 1953, to October 31, 1953, on the Silver Crown, Big Hill, and Silverman claims of Western Gold and Uranium Mines, Inc. at the Silver Reef district near Leeds, Utah. Two economically significant new ore bodies were discovered and considerable geological information gained. The Silver Reef uranium deposits are located near the faulted north-plunging nose of the Virgin anticline in an old silver mining' district. Silver, uranium, vanadium, and copper minerals occur in association with various carbonaceous, sandy shale horizons of the Leeds and Tecumseh members of the Triassic Chinle formation. Mineralization has favored areas where relatively close-spaced normal faults of very small displacement cut the favorable beds.
