Uranium in Granites From the Southwestern United States: Actinide Parent-Daughter Systems, Sites and Mobilization: First Year Report

Description: From summary: In this first annual report for subcontract BFEC 79-384-E (Uranium in Granites of Southwestern North America) we have established the general geological and geochemical background for our investigations. We describe the regional setting and some important geochemical patterns, constituting a major uranium anomaly, of the Precambrian basement in the Colorado Plateau region. Three of our investigated samples were derived from a portion of this region in central and northern Arizona. We describe the tectonic and petrologic setting for a fourth sample, a granite from the young (Cretaceous) Peninsular Ranges Batholith of southern California.
