Airborne Radiometric Reconnaissance of Parts of Central Montana

Description: This report provides the results to an airborne radiometric reconnaissance made in central Montana, the Sweetgrass Hills and Arch area, and Clancy area of the Boulder batholith that was completed in October 1953. This report is divided into three parts, each area is discussed separately according to its geology, the airborne procedures employed, and the conclusions reached.

Airborne Radiometric Survey in Northern New Jersey and Southeastern New York

Description: Abstract: "An airborne radiometric survey of the pre-Cambrian Highlands of New Jersey and New York, and Triassic Newark Basin located in 14 radiometric anomalies in the Highlands. No commercial deposit of uranium discovered. Ground checks revealed that most anomalies were caused by large masses or residual boulders of slightly radioactive granitoid gneiss."

Airborne Radiometric Survey of the East Flank of the Big Horn Mountains, Wyoming and Montana

Description: Abstract: An airborne radiometric survey of parts of the east flank of the Big Horn Mountains was begun on June 23, and completed on August 27, 1952. An area of approximately 250 square miles was covered, and only two anomalies were found in the entire area. Flight lines were arranged in accordance with the geology of the area, particular attention being given to formations the stratigraphic equivalents of which are known to be uranium bearing in other areas. Two additional zones of radioactivi… more

Airborne Reconnaissance in Southwestern Arkansas

Description: Introduction: Reconnaissance for uranium in central and southwestern Arkansas was carried out as a joint project of the U.S. Atomic energy Commission and the U.S. Geological Survey during March and May 1954. The project was planned as an investigation of several areas of known abnormal radioactivity, and as a search for others, by airborne and ground radiometric reconnaissance.

Airborne Reconnaissance in the Valley of Fire-Muddy Mountains Region, Nevada

Description: Abstract: The Valley of Fire-Muddy Mountains region, located 20 to 30 miles northeast of Las Vegas, Nevada, was given approximately 25-percent airborne radioactive coverage during the fall of 1954. Rocks in the area range from Cambrian to Miocene in age. Uranium was known to occur at two sedimentary horizons at the time the airborne program began. One new uranium-bearing sedimentary horizon was discovered by the airborne reconnaissance. Of 15 anomolies detected, only 11 were posted as the remai… more

Airborne Reconnaissance Project, Ruby Range and Sweetwater Basin, Montana

Description: Abstract: A low-level airborne radioactivity survey of parts of Beaverhead and Madison Counties in southwestern Montana was undertaken from June 6 to October 14, 1955. Flying centered around the Ruby Range-Sweetwater Basin area and concentrated on the Precambrian metamorphic complex and Tertiary lake-bed sediments. No commercial uranium deposits were discovered, and no extensions were found of the few known small occurrences. Five areas of high background detected through the survey were invest… more

Airborne Reconnaissance Survey of Northwestern Arizona (Arizona Strip) and Southwestern Utah

Description: Abstract: From December 1953 to May 1954 an extensive airborne reconnaissance program was conducted in northwestern Arizona (Arizona Strip) and southwestern Utah. Five surface anomalies were detected, one of which has possible commercial value. All anomalies are within the boundaries of National Park Service jurisdiction, consequently, this report is not for public distribution until clearance is obtained from the National Park Service. A preliminary airborne reconnaissance program was also con… more

Examination of Copper-Uranium Occurrences in the Willaha Area, Coconino County, Arizona

Description: Abstract: A study, consisting of field and laboratory work, was undertaken in an endeavor to establish possible structural mineralization controls associated with the copper-uranium occurrences in the Willaha area, Coconino County, Arizona. Uranium mineralization, apparent at present, is localized along small fissures and vugs and in certain beds and lenses of the middle member of the Kaibab formation(Permian). It is associated with copper and iron oxide staining. Though no definite ore control… more
