Preliminary Report on Geologic Investigations in Monument Valley Area, Arizona, 1952

Description: From introduction: A program of uranium investigations and geologic mapping on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Apache and Navajo Counties, northeastern Arizona (fig. 1) was undertaken by the U. S. Geological Survey on behalf of the Atomic Energy Commission during the field seasons of 1951 and 1952. Field work on this program has been completed and preliminary copies of the maps, which cover an area of about 700 square miles, are inclosed as part of this report. The two principal objectives of the program were to establish geologic criteria useful as guides in prospecting for uranium deposits, and to appraise the favorableness of the Shinarump conglomerate and other Triassic rocks for the occurrence of uranium deposits in order to select areas that deserve exploration for concealed deposits.

Reconnaissance for Radioactivity in the Gold Hill Mining Area, Boulder County, Colorado, Part 1

Description: Abstract: Several radioactive deposits were found as a result of reconnaissance in the Gold Hill mining area, Boulder County, Colo. The ore deposits of the area have been worked chiefly for gold. All ore shipped has come from fissure veins, most of which are gold telluride veins. There are, however, some important sulfide veins which show a vague zonal distribution of pyritic gold ores and silverlead ores. The results of this reconnaissance suggest a possible relationship of the radioactive deposits to this indistinct sulfide zoning; however, the zoning is so obscure that its practical application to prospecting for uranium is of doubtful value at the present time. Pitchblende, torbernite, metatorbernite, and schroeckingerite have been identified in specimens from the area; however, no uranium minerals have yet been identified from most of the radioactive deposits, and the uraniferous material present is probably in disseminated small particles. Although selected samples from several localities assay 0.10 percent uranium or more, the known deposits are small and probably are not of immediate economic importance

Reconnaissance for Uranium in the Coal of São Paulo, Santa Catarina, and Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil

Description: Abstract: Uranium-bearing coal and carbonaceous shale .of the Rio Bonito formation of Pennsylvanian age have been found in the States of Sao Paulo, Santa Catarina, and Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The uranium oxide content of the samples collected in the State of Sao Paulo ranges from 0.001 percent to 0.082 percent. The samples collected in Santa Catarina averaged about 0.002 percent uranium oxide; those collected in Rio Grande do Sul, about 0.003 percent uranium oxide. Since the field and laboratory investigations are still in their initial stages, only raw data on the radioactivity and uranium content of Brazilian coals are given in this report.

Description of Core from Atomic Energy Commission Drill Hole Number 1, Project Gnome, Eddy County, New Mexico

Description: From abstract: Drilling at the Project GNOME site, which is in the approximate center of sec. 34, T. 23 S., R. 30 E., NMPM, was undertaken in August and September 1958 by the W-W Drilling Company. The purpose of drilling this hole, which is at the precise location of the proposed shaft, was to determine (1) the lithologic and water-bearing characteristics of the rocks of Cenozoic, Mesozoic, and Paleozoic age that lie above the salt-bearing sequence in the Salado formation; (2) the depth to the top of the unleached salt and associated evaporites in the Salado formation; and (3) the local details of the salt-bearing sequence in the Salado formation.

Water Resources of the Red River of the North Drainage Basin in Minnesota

Description: The report consists of three principal sections; environmental setting, water resource management, and the hydrologic system. The environmental setting describes the land and people as related to water resources. The section on water resource management is intended to provide practical information needed for the planning and management of water resources. The section on the hydrologic system is a more technical discussion of water in the Red River basin. The section on water management can be used to locate the water, determine the amount available and its quality; whereas, the section on the hydrologic system describes the operation of the system how water moves through the system and why the quality is as it is.

Water-Temperature Data Acquisition Activities in the United States

Description: In this report, information is presented by means of tables and illustrations preceded by brief explanations. It includes the agencies collecting the data, the number of stations located on surface and ground waters where temperature measurements are made, the distribution of stations by States and by the 21 regions of the Water Resources Council.
