Aerial Gamma Ray and Magnetic Survey, Final Report. Volume 1: Rice Lake Quadrangle (Wisconsin), Iron Mountain Quadrangle (Wisconsin/Michigan), Eau Claire Quadrangle (Wisconsin/Minnesota), and Green Bay Quadrangle (Wisconsin)

Description: A high sensitivity airborne radiometric and magnetic survey of the Rice Like, Iron Mountain, Eau Claire and Green Bay 1:250,000 NMTS Quadrangles within the states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Minnesota. A total of 10,340 line miles of high sensitivity radiometric and magnetic data were collected within these quadrangles. Traverse lines were flown at a spacing of 3.125 miles in an east/west direction at a 18.375 miles seperation. All data were collected utilizing a fixed wing aircraft and over 3,500 cubic inches of Nal crystal detector. Magnetometer data were collected utilizing a high sensitivity proton magnetometer. Data were recorded digitally at 1.0 second intervals aboard the aircraft. Navigation was performed using both visual and doppler techniques. All data presented in this report as corrected profiles of all radiometric variables, magnetic data, radar and barometric altimeter data, air temperature and airborne bismuth contributions. Radiometric data presented are corrected for Comptron Scatter, altitude dependence and atmospheric Bismuth. These data are also presented on microfiche, and digital magnetic tapes. In addition, anomaly maps and inerpretation maps are presented in relating known geology or soil distribution to the corrected radiometric magnetic data.

VOR Calibration Services

Description: from Introduction: The National Bureau of Standards has designed, constructed, and evaluated a standard for the support of very-high-frequency omnidirectional range (VOR) air navigation aids. The standard consists of two instruments: (1) a digital waveform signal generator for the composite VOR audio waveform, and (2) a standard phasemeter based on time series analysis of this waveform. Experimental results, a statistical analysis of them, and the principal software listings are included.

Mineral Resources of a Part of the Dos Cabezas Mountains Wilderness Study Area (Az-040-065), Cochise County, Arizona

Description: From summary: In January-April 1984, the Bureau of Mines conducted a mineral survey of the Lower Burro Creek Wilderness Study Area as required by Federal Land Policy and Management Act (Public Law 94-579, October 21, 1976). The Lower Burro Creek Wilderness Study Area comprises 21,700 acres in southeastern Mohave and Yavapai Counties, Arizona. Mines and prospects are located on deposits and (or) occurrences of gold, bentonite, magnesite, and agate in the eastern and southeastern part of the study area.

Mineral Resources of the Harquahala Mountains Study Area (Az-020-095), La Paz and Maricopa Counties, Arizona

Description: From summary: The Harquahala Mountains BLM Wilderness Study Area is in the Basin and Range physiographic province of west-central Arizona. The present study covers 24,735 acres of the 72,675 acre wilderness study area, preliminary recommended as suitable for inclusion in the National Wilderness Preservation System in La Paz and Maricopa Counties, Arizona. During the winter of 1983-84, under authority of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (Public Law 94-579), the Bureau mapped and sampled mines and prospects in and near the WSA to determine the mineral resources present.

Mineral Investigation of the Lime Hills, Narrows, and Sand Cove Wilderness Study Areas, Mohave County, Arizona

Description: From introduction: During 1981 the Bureau of Mines conducted a field investigation of the Bureau of Land Management's Lime Hills, Narrows, and Sand Cove Wilderness Study Areas (WSA's), Mohave County, Arizona as part of a joint effort with the Geological Survey to make a mineral survey of the area. Surface workings and outcrops were examined and samples taken from rock sections that appeared to represent most of the mineralized area. Complete analytical results and sample descriptions are available for public inspection at the Bureau of Mines, Intermountain Field Operations Center, Building 20, Denver Federal Center, Denver, Colo. Part of the area also was examined and sampled in 1979 by L. W. Hamm, Bureau of Mines (Villalobos and Hamm, 1980), during a mineral resource study of the Paiute Primitive Area.

Mineral Investigation of the North End Roadless Area, Cochise County, Arizona

Description: From introduction: During the spring and fall of 1979 the U.S. Bureau of Mines made a mineral investigation of the North End Roadless Area, including a literature search, a search of claim records in the Cochise County courthouse and the State office of the Bureau of Land Management, a search for mining claims and mineralized zones, and examination of known mines and prospects. Local residents and officials of mining companies the U.S. Forest Service, and Arizona State government agencies provided information regarding mining activity and mineral deposits.

National Uranium Resource Evaluation: Data Release on the Salton Sea Quadrangle, California and Arizona

Description: From objectives: In the Salton Sea Quadrangle, reported uranium occurrences were evaluated, and geologic environments thought to be favorable were examined. This report includes the field data collected during that work and a summary of the quadrangle geology and uranium favorability. This is the final report to be prepared on this quadrangle under the NURE program.

Reports on Investigations of Uranium Anomalies

Description: Introduction: The Hylas Zone, a northeast-trending belt of mylonite and ultramylonite, lies in the eastern Piedmont Province of Virginia and borders the northern end of the Richmond Basin (Fig. I-1). The north-trending Richmond Basin is 58 km long and a maximum of 16 km wide. Early indications of anomalous uranium concentrations in the region came from discussions with Jan Krason, GeoExplorers International, Denver, who had worked in the area. Examination of aerial radiometric data (Geodata International, 1975) and HSSR data (Cook, 1981) indicated anomalous values of uranium in the area northwest of Richmond. During June 1981, a 5-day trip to the Hylas area was undertaken to collect rock and ground-water samples and to identify possible source and host rocks of uranium.
