Mineral Resources of the Honeycomb Buttes Wilderness Study Area, Fremont and Sweetwater Counties, Wyoming

Description: From summary: This report includes field investigations to evaluate the mineral resource potential of the Honeycomb Buttes were conducted during the summer of 1984. Geologic mapping, geochemical sampling, geophysical surveys, stratigraphic and sedimentological studies, and surveys of prospects delineated areas of very low grade placer gold deposits in terrace gravels and low and moderate resource potential for additional similar undiscovered placer gold deposits, low and moderate resource potential for small uranium deposits, moderate resource potential for accumulation of oil and gas, and low resource potential for coal and oil shale.

Analyses of Coals in the United States with Descriptions of Mine and Field Samples Collected between July 1, 1904 and June 30, 1910 Part 2. Descriptions of Samples

Description: From Introduction: "This volume contains the descriptions of the samples whose analyses are published in the preceding volume, Part I of this bulletin. The descriptions have been compiled from the notebooks of the persons who collected the samples, have been condensed from accounts given in published reports of the United States Geological Survey, or have furnished by the collection themselves. Inasmuch as the descriptions represent the work of many persons during a period of six years, and inasmuch as they were recorded under widely differing conditions, they necessarily vary in fullness detail."

Preliminary Reconnaissance for Uranium in the Green River Basin and the Rock Springs Uplift, Sweetwater and Fremont Counties, Wyoming

Description: Abstract: Preliminary reconnaissance for uranium in the Green River Basin and the Rock Springs Uplift revealed anomalous radioactivity northwest of Oregon Buttes in the Tipton tongue of the Green River formation and in the Cathedral Bluffs tongue of the Wasatch formation, and in the Tipton tongue in Red Creek Basin.

Mineral Resources of the Sand Dunes Wilderness Study Area, Sweetwater County, Wyoming

Description: From summary: In this report the area studied is referred to as the "wilderness study area" or the "study area". Investigations of mineral occurrences in and near the wilderness study area during 1984 and 1985 indicated high mineral resource potential for undiscovered deposits of coal, moderate potential of oil shale and natural gas, low potential for oil, and identified resources of claystone, shale, and sand.

Airborne Radioactivity Survey of the Red Desert Region, Sweetwater County, Wyoming

Description: From abstract: An airborne radioactivity survey of a selected area in the Red Desert, Sweetwater County, Wyoming, containing outcrops of radioactive lignites and shales of known surface extent and uranium content, was flown on flight lines at three levels, respectively 250, 500, and 1,000 feet above the ground and spaced at one-quarter mile intervals. Measurements from three identical dual-channel radiation detectors were simultaneously recorded to obtain data at various distances from natural radioactive sources of known configuration. The radiation intensity measurements were fully corrected for all extraneous effects and were compiled as profiles of radiation intensity, as an isoradioactivity contour map, and as curves showing the relationship between radiation intensity and distance from the source.

Preliminary Report on Lost Creek Schroeckingerite Area, Sweetwater County, Wyoming

Description: Introduction: This report is a summary of the field work at the Lost Creek schroeckingerite deposit, Sweetwater County, Wyo. from July 1 through November 22, 1952. The objectives of field work at Lost Creek during the report period were to obtain additional data for calculating tonnage and grade and to obtain additional information on the controls and localization of schroeckingerite. In order to accomplish these objectives the Survey continued the exploration by means of trenching, mapped all trench walls (scale 1:120), mapped the exploration area at scales of 1:2400 and 1:9600, and carried on an extensive sampling program.

Lost Creek (Wamsutter) Schroeckingerite Deposit, Sweetwater County, Wyoming

Description: Summary: The Lost Creek schroeckingerite deposit in Sweetwater County, Wyo., has attracted attention in the past both as an occurrence of comparatively rare minerals and more recently as a possible source of uranium ore. During the summer of 1948 a newly-formed company by the name of Uranium, Inc., explored part of the deposit by bulldozer trenching and drilling. under the technical direction of the Minerals Engineering Company of Grand Junction, Colo. Examination of the significant exposures of the schroeckingerite deposit indicated that the uraniferous beds are discontinuous and that their areal distribution is erratic. The overburden has an average thickness of 2.5 feet.

Uranium Deposits in the Red Desert of the Great Divide Basin, Sweetwater County, Wyoming

Description: From introduction: The investigations that are the subject of this report were to appraise the uranium resources of the Red Desert area, and to accumulate data concerning the geology of uranium. Knowledge of the genesis of the schroeckingerite is necessary for a clear appraisal of the deposit.

Uranium-Bearing Coal in the Central Part of the Great Divide Basin, Sweetwater County, Wyoming

Description: From abstract: Field work leading to this report was done by the U. S. Geological Survey for the Division of Raw Materials of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission, Nearly 24 townships were mapped in the central part of the Great Divide Basin, Sweetwater County, Wyoming, Fourteen of these townships contain outcrops of uranium-bearing coal. Thirty coal beds were mapped, but only seven of them have uranium-bearing coal reserves as defined in this report.
