Basic Data Report for Drilling and Hydrologic Testing of Drillhole DOE-2 at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) Site

Description: From abstract: Drillhole DOE-2 was drilled to investigate a structural depression marked by the downward displacement of stratigraphic markers in the Salado Formation ~ 2 mi north of the center of the WIPP site. This depression was named informally after the shallow borehole FC-92 in which the structure was described. The presence of the depression was confirmed by drilling.

Primary Sedimentary Trend Indicators as Applied to Ore Finding in the Carrizo Mountains, Arizona and New Mexico

Description: Abstract: Field and laboratory study of primary sedimentary features of the Salt Wash sandstone was undertaken to learn if these structures can be of use in finding hidden deposits of ore and also if they have influenced the localization of either individual ore deposits or larger mineralized districts.

Fracture Pattern of the Zuni Uplift: Final Report

Description: Abstract: The objectives of this study have been to determine the nature of the major fracture pattern of the Zuni uplift; to analyze this pattern for evidence of the mode of origin of the uplift; and to compare the fracturing in the ore areas with that elsewhere on the uplift to see whether diagnostic features exist hat might make it possible to indicate other favorable areas.

Seismic Waves from an Underground Explosion in a Salt Bed: Preliminary Report

Description: From abstract: Seismic waves resulting from a 5 kiloton nuclear detonation 1200 feet deep in a salt bed near Carlsbad, New Mexico were measured by strong-motion seismographs operated by the Coast and Geodetic Survey on the surface in the distance range from 0.5 to 8.8 miles and underground in a potash mine 8.7 to 11.2 miles distant.

Stratigraphy of the Mississippian System, South-Central Colorado and North-Central New Mexico

Description: From abstract: In the Sawatch, Mosquito and Front Ranges of central Colorado and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of south-central Colorado, Tournaisian beds of the Mississippian Leadville Limestone overlie rocks of Early Mississippian and Late Devonian age. In the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in north-central New Mexico, the oldest beds are the Tournaisian (zone 9) Espiritu Santo Formation. In west-central New Mexico, in the Magdalena, Lemitar, and Ladron Mountains, the Kelly Limestone of Tournaisian and Visean age rests unconformably on Proterozoic metamorphic and igneous rocks. This report examines the stratigraphy of this area.

Uranium-Bearing Copper Deposits Near Guadalupita, Mora County, New Mexico

Description: Abstract: Dark shale and arkosic sandstone south of Guadalupita, Mora County, New Mexico, contain as much as 4 percent copper and 0. 01 percent uranium on the basis of a few samples recently analyzed. The deposits occur primarily in the dark shale which is about 5 feet thick and dips about 900. Potential reserves of this material are very large. Prospecting and further geologic work will be necessary, however, to evaluate possibilities of these large tonnages. If the deposits can be mined for their copper content, the uranium might be recovered as a byproduct. Detailed mapping and possibly some trenching will be undertaken by the Geological Survey in order further to evaluate the deposits.

Geology of the Santa Rita Mining Area, New Mexico

Description: From abstract: The Santa Rita mining area (pl. 1), covering 35 square miles of semiarid mountainous land, lies within the Silver City 30-minute quadrangle, Grant County, N. Mex., and includes the most productive part of the Central or Hanover mining district. Ore was produced in this district as early as 1804 and production continued intermittently for a century before the developments were undertaken that led to large-scale copper mining, which began in 1912. The output of zinc, lead, and iron increased markedly about the same time.

A Preliminary Summary Report of a Reconnaissance of Sandstone-Type Copper-Uranium Deposits in Parts of New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming

Description: From introduction: The reconnaissance was made during the summer of 1951 by two field parties: (1) a reconnaissance in parts of Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona by Russell Gibson, and (2) Geological Survey reconnaissance in parts of New Mexico,.Colorado, Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming (by the writers), the results of which are summarized in this report.

Uranium-Bearing Copper Deposits in the Coyote District, Mora County, New Mexico

Description: Abstract: Uranium-bearing copper deposits occur in steeply dipping beds of the Sangre de Cristo formation of Pennsylvanian and Permian age south of Coyote, Mora County, N. Mex. Mapping and sampling of these deposits indicate that they occur in lenticular carbonaceous zones in shales and arkosic sandstones. Samples from these zones contain as much as 0.067 percent uranium and average 3 percent copper. Metatyuyamunite is disseminated in some of the arkosic sandstone beds, and uraninite was identified in some of the copper sulfide nodules occurring in the shale. In polished section these sulfide nodules were found to be composed principally of chalcocite with some bornite and covellite, as well as pyrite and malachite. Most of the samples were collected near the surface from the weathered zone. The copper and uranium were probably deposited with the sediments and concentrated into zones during compaction and lithification. Carbonaceous material in the Sangre de Cristo formation provided the environment that precipitated uranium and copper from mineral-charged connate waters forced from the clayey sediments.

Recent Discoveries of Radioactive Carbonaceous Shale, Sandoval County, New Mexico

Description: Introduction: During the course of geologic reconnaissance on the west flank of the Sierra Nacimiento near La Ventana Mesa, Sandoval County, N. Mex., several outcrops of carbonaceous material in the Dakota sandstone and the Gibson coal member of the Mesaverde formation have been examined and estimated to contain as much as 0.03 percent equivalent uranium. These outcrops are in an area that is an extension of the La Ventana Mesa area.

The Copper and Uranium Deposits of the Coyote District, Mora County, New Mexico

Description: From abstract: The copper and uranium-vanadium deposits of the Coyote district, Mora County, N. Mex., are confined to the lower 2,000 feet of the Sangre de Cristo formation of Pennsylvanian and Permian age. A narrow belt of deposits in steeply dipping or overturned rocks extends for 7 miles along Coyote Creek south of Guadalupita. Earlier studies showed that the copper deposits contained uranium, but both the reserves and the uranium content of the copper-bearing shale are too low to permit the recovery of uranium. However, small, commercial grade uranium deposits have been discovered in sandstone.
