Geochemistry of Mariano Lake-Lake Valley Cores, McKinley County, New Mexico

Description: From abstract: The primary goal of the U.S. Geological Survey-Bureau of Indian Affairs drilling project in the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation in McKinley County, New Mexico, was to better understand the relationship between host-rock stratigraphy and uranium mineralization. As part of this project, geochemical studies of approximately 280 samples from 8 cores and 1 outcrop were undertaken; samples from 4 of the cores show uranium enrichment. Geochemical relationships between samples of weathered outcrop, oxidized core, reduced (unmineralized) core, and ore-bearing core were contrasted by comparison of element abundances.

Evolution of Sedimentary Basins--San Juan Basin: Chapters B-D

Description: From abstract: This report describes the depositional environments of the Chinle Formation that was deposited in a complex fluvial-deltaic-lacustrine system in the area of the present-day eastern San Juan basin and Chama basin. Lithofacies include conglomerate and planar- and trough-crossbedded sandstone; bentonitic mudstone and sandstone; black, organic carbon-rich mudstone; large-scale, trough crossstratified siltstone, sandstone, and mudstone; and thickbedded, bioturbated, fine-grained sandstone and siltstone.
