Description: From abstract: Thorium has been found since 1949 in at least 33 deposits in an area 6 miles wide and 20 miles long in the Powderhorn district, Gunnison County, Colo. The district is underlain largely by pre-Jurassic metamorphic and igneous rocks, most of which, if not all, are pre-Cambrian in age. These rocks are overlain by sandstone of the Morrison formation of Jurassic age, and by volcanic rocks of the Alboroto group and the Hinsdale formation of Miocene and of Pliocene(?) age, respectively.
