The Oil Fields of Allen County Kentucky, with Notes on the Oil Geology of Adjoining Counties

Description: From introduction: The purpose of the field work was to investigate the geology of the county, particularly the structure or lay of the oil-bearing strata and the results of drilling to date. Structural conditions in the producing fields were determined by running level lines to the wells and correlating the data recorded in the well logs generously furnished by the operators.

Superposition in the Interpretation of Two-Layer Earth-Resistivity Curves

Description: From abstract: A method is presented for the interpretation of data on electrical resistivity by the superposition of standard reference curves on those obtained from field observations. This method is applicable where bedrock whose average resistivity is essentially uniform is overlain by overburden whose average resistivity is also uniform but markedly distinct.

Tertiary Deposits of the Eagle-Circle District, Alaska

Description: From introduction: The present report aims to supply additional information regarding the Tertiary deposits, which are the source of most of the gold placers now being worked in that part of the Eagle-Circle district lying south of the Yukon River. The work was conducted from base camps along the river, but the belt of Tertiary rocks is at places as much as 20 miles from the Yukon, so that it is not easily accessible from the river except in the vicinity of mining camps, where roads or trails have been constructed southward.

Subsurface Geology and Oil and Gas Resources of Osage County, Oklahoma: Part 9. Townships 23 and 24 North Range 7 East

Description: From foreword: This report on the subsurface geology of Osage County, Okla., describes the structural features, the character of the oil- and gas-producing beds, and the localities where additional oil and gas may be found. It embodies a part of the results of a subsurface geologic investigation of the Osage Indian Reservation, which coincides in area with Osage County. The investigation was conducted by a field party of the Geological Survey of the United States Department of the Interior in 1934 to 1937 and involved the study of the records of about 17,000 wells that have been drilled in Osage County.

Geology of the Gerstle River District, Alaska, with a Report on the Black Rapids Glacier

Description: From abstract: The area here described includes most of the north side of the Alaska Range between the Delta and Johnson Rivers, in one direction, and the axis of the Alaska Range and the Tanana River in the other. Besides the Delta River, its principal streams are Jarvis Creek, the Gerstle and Little Gerstle Rivers, and, at the extreme east, the Johnson River, all of which have glacial sources.

Geology of area between Green and Colorado rivers, Grand and San Juan counties, Utah

Description: From Abstract: "The area described in this report comprises about 900 square miles of arid land lying between the Green and Colorado Rivers south of the Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad and southwest of the Salt Valley anticline. The rocks that crop out or that have been encountered in wells drilled in the are all sedimentary and range in age from Pennsylvania ti Upper Cretaceous. Mesizoic strata are especially well represented."

Adsorbent clays: their distribution, properties, production, and uses

Description: From Abstract: "This bulletin is a summary of present knowledge of the adsorbent or bleaching clays-their distribution, field and laboratory identification, physical and chemical properties, uses, quality, and value. Problems in the drying, treating with acids, and washing are discussed, and methods of testing and rating decolorizing efficiency are described."

Structure and oil and gas resources of the Osage Reservation, Oklahoma

Description: From Introduction: "Responding to the imperative need for increasing to the utmost the petroleum supply of the United States, the Geological Survey, since we entered the war, has largely concentrated its investigations of oil fields in the most promising undeveloped territory, such as Wyoming and the midcontinent-Texas region, and especially in the Osage Reservation in Oklahoma. This report is therefore issued to supply an evident need for geologic information regarding the Osage lands. In the separate papers the most practical and immediately available conclusions reached by geologists as to the structure and oil prospects in the townships already examined are published for the immediate use of the oil man."

Stratigraphy, structure, and mineralization in the Beaver-Tarryall area, Park County, Colorado: a reconnaissance report

Description: From Introduction: "The recent large increase in gold production from the Alma district has greatly stimulated interest in territory immediately to the east, where many small gold-bearing veins have been discovered. Consequently, as a cooperative project of the United States Geological Survey and the State of Colorado, 7 weeks in 1938 were devoted to renaissance work to determine the origin of the placer gold and the possibilities for discovering valuable lode deposits either near the surface or at depth."

Boundaries, areas, geographic centers and altitudes of the United States and the several states, with a brief record of important changes in their territory

Description: From Forward: "The first edition of the record setting forth the history of the boundaries of the United States and the several States and Territories was prepared by Henry Gannett, assisted by Franklin G. Butterfield, and was published as Bulletin 13 of the United States Geological Survey in 1885. The present bulletin is a revision and enlargement of Bulletin 226 and includes additional matter incidentally connected with boundaries."

The Eastern Front of the Bitterroot Range, Montana

Description: From abstract: The origin of the gneissic rocks on the eastern border of the Idaho batholith in the Bitterroot Range, near Hamilton, Mont., has long been in dispute. Lindgren regarded these rocks as the product of stresses related to a normal fault along the front of the range with an eastward dip of about 150. He thought both the hanging wall and the footwall had moved, with a total displacement along the fault plane of at least 20,000 feet. The faulting was believed to have been so recent as to be a major factor in the present topography. Langton appears to accept the concept of faulting but to regard the gneissic rocks as formed much earlier from a granitic rock that was more silicic and older than the Idaho batholith.

Geochemical Relations of Zinc-Bearing Peat to the Lockport Dolomite, Orleans County, New York

Description: From introduction: Geochemical studies of zinc-bearing peats in western New York State show them to be related genetically to underlying mineralized beds of the Lockport dolomite of Niagaran age. (...) Intermittent field work was begun in the area by the United States Geological Survey in September 1946; after some interruptions, field work was completed in June 1948. In 1950, 1,900 feet of diamond drilling was completed in the area.

Geological and Geophysical Survey of Fluorspar Areas in Hardin County, Illinois

Description: From abstract: Pt 1. The present work seems to confirm the genetic theory previously published, namely that [Illinois Cave in Rock] deposits were formed by ascending solutions. These solutions probably followed minor fissures that connected below with larger fissures, which in turn probably connected with a major fault zone. It is believed that where such minor fissures extended upward only to the shale or other impervious cap rock, or were greatly reduced in size where they penetrated such beds, the solutions spread laterally along the contact and along the limestone beds beneath it and replaced the limestone. Pt 2. This report is a presentation of the results of an electrical-resistivity survey conducted in the fluorspar-bearing areas of Hardin County, Ill., principally during the field seasons of 1934 and 1935.
