Analyses of historic U.S. Bureau of Mines rock and heavy mineral concentrate samples for geochemical trace-element and rare-earth element data--Ray Mountains and Kanuti-Hodzana uplands area, Alaska
Re-analyses of sample pulps and bulk rejects from historic USBM rock and heavy-mineral-concentrate samples were conducted by the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) as part of the State of Alaska's Strategic and Critical Minerals Assessment project, which is designed to evaluate Alaska's potential for these resources. The objective of this resource assessment is to expand the state's geochemical database by obtaining and publishing modern, quantitative geochemical analyses for historic USBM samples, where available. Highlights of this re-analysis project include heavy mineral concentrates with up 7,220 ppm Sn, 5,870 ppm Cr, and 17,000 ppm Mn.
Geochemical major-oxide, minor-oxide, trace-element, and rare-earth-element data from rocks and streams sediments collected in 2012 in the Ray Mountains area, Beaver, Bettles, Livengood, and Tanana quadrangles, Alaska
Mineral-resources personnel from the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) carried out a helicopter-supported geological and geochemical resource assessment project in the Beaver, Bettles, Livengood, and Tanana quadrangles from June 23 through August 5, 2012. The objectives of DGGS's resource assessment are to improve the trace-element geochemical coverage of selected watersheds; to obtain modern, quantitative geochemical analyses; to understand the petrogenesis of the granites; and to better document established mineral occurrences. Stream-sediment, pan-concentrate, and rock sampling were conducted as part of the State's Rare Earth Elements and Strategic Minerals Assessment project, which is...
Engineering-geologic database of the proposed Alaska Natural Gas Transportation System (ANGTS) corridor from Prudhoe Bay to Delta Junction, Alaska
This publication is a 6 CD-ROM compilation of data describing the bedrock, surficial, and engineering geology of a portion of the proposed Alaska Natural Gas Transportation System corridor. Maps or reports with scales of 1:250,000 or greater that cross or come within 5 miles of the centerline were included in this compilation. Two maps with scales smaller than 1:250,000 were also included: OFR 82-1071 and OFR 98-133. A complete bibliography of references used in this compilation is on the first CD-ROM of this project in ANGTSgis/RefsCited.doc. This project consists of an ArcView 3.x (AV) .apr file and a Microsoft Access 2000 (MS Access) database. The ArcView project and the Access database are linked using AccessLink,...
Core fragment descriptions, Exxon core holes, uplands bordering Yukon Flats basin, east-central Alaska
This Raw Data File provides lithologic descriptions of core fragments recovered from a series of core holes drilled by Exxon (mid-80s) in the uplands bordering the Yukon Flats basin. In addition to descriptions of the material, the tabulated file includes geographic location, core hole numbers, an age estimate, core fragment depth, general lithology, grain size, and facies interpretation. The author examined these core materials in Fairbanks during winter and spring 2002. This work was done in preparation for an assessment carried out by the U.S. Geological Survey of undiscovered, technically recoverable hydrocarbon resources in the Yukon Flats basin.
