Precambrian uranium-bearing quartz-pebble conglomerates: exploration model and United States resource potential

Description: From Introduction: "Uranium has been discovered in fluvial quartz-pebble conglomerates in most of the Precambrian shield areas of the world, including the Canadian, African, South America, Indian, Baltic, and Australian shields. Occurrences in these and other areas are shown in Figure 1.1. Two of these occurrences, the Huronian supergroup of Canada and the Witwatersrand deposit of South Africa contain 20-30 percent of the planet's known uranium reserves (Nininger, 1974). Thus it is critical that we understand the origin of these deposits and develop exploration models that can aid in finding new deposits."

Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance Basic Data for Green Bay NTMS Quadrangle, Wisconsin

Description: From abstract: Results of a reconnaissance geochemical survey of the Green Bay Quadrangle, Wisconsin are reported. Field and laboratory data are presented for 695 groundwater samples, 546 stream sediment samples, and 401 stream water samples. Statistical and areal distributions of uranium and other possibly uranium-related variables are displayed. A generalized geologic map of the survey area is provided, and pertinent geologic factors which may be of significance in evaluating the potential for uranium mineralization are briefly discussed.

Study to Develop Essential Planning Data for Conterminous U.S. Aerial Radiometric Surveys

Description: From Introduction: "The objective of this study was to present the data in a form readily useful in planning the remainder of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Uranium Resource Evaluation (NURE) Program National Aerial Radiometric Reconnaissance Survey and to facilitate planning of similar, more detailed, followup surveys in the conterminous United States. The data are presented on microfiche (in pocket) and in digital form on magnetic tape (obtainable from the DOE computer data base). The National Topographic Map Series (NTMS) quadrangles at 1:250,000 scale were used for survey unit areas in compiling the data. The data formats are explained in subsection I.B, and the nature and origin of the planning factors are described in Section II."

Aerial Radiometric and Magnetic Survey of the Lubbock and Plainview Geologic Atlas Areas of Texas: Volume 1. Summary Report

Description: From introduction: Geodata International, Incorporated, conducted an airborne gamma ray and total magnetic field survey of a region of Northwest Texas which covered the Lubbock and Plainview Geologic Atlas Maps. The area shown on Figure 1 was surveyed from an aircraft using large-volume radiation detectors with computer-controlled airborne equipment. Each map line was flown in an east-west direction with an average length of 120 miles. A total of 47 map lines were surveyed spaced at 3-mile intervals beginning at latitude 33000' and ending at latitude 350

National Uranium Resource Evaluation, Flagstaff Quadrangle, Arizona

Description: From purpose and scope: The purpose of this study is to identify and delineate areas favorable for the occurrence of uranium deposits "which could contain at least 100 metric tons of U308 with an average grade of not less than 100 ppm U308". The study was limited to depths of less than 1500 m (5000 ft). No attempt was made to make the economics of recovering uranium a criterion for selecting favorable areas, except that the uranium be in a "mineable configuration".

Geology and Uranium Favorability of the Sonora Pass Region, Alpine and Tuolumne Counties, California

Description: From project objectives: The Sonora Pass region was identified by the U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) as a potential uranium resource area because of past uranium production at the Juniper Mine and reported high-grade occurrences in other buried fluvial channels which are Tertiary in age. The objective of the Sonora Pass drilling project was to obtain subsurface data that would increase the accuracy of uranium reserve estimates for the project area.
