This report and accompanying maps summarize the status of ownership of many phosphate bearing lands in the State of Utah. Ownership categories discussedare (1) phosphate rights owned by Federal Government, (2) phosphate rights not owned by Federal Government, and (3) ownership status uncertain.

Geochemical sampling in the Western Cordillera has delineated an 18 km 2 area anomalous in copper, molybdenum, and silver. Highly anomalous metal contents are found in stream sediment, soil, and outcrop samples collected within this area. The area is underlain by intrusive granodiorite to quartz diorite that has porphyritic and granitoid phases. Most of the outcrop samples contain disseminated pyrite, chalcopyrite, and bornite. A geochemical reconnaissance sampling program in the Western Cordillera, formulated by Andros Jimeno V., Director, Instituto National de Investigaciones Geologico-Mineras (INGEOMINAS), and Earl M. Irving, U. S. Geological Survey (USGS) Chief of Party in Colombia, was carried out from 1969...

Three sequences of volcanic and sedimentary rocks are identified in the Precambrian rocks of the Bi'r Ghamrah quadrangle at the eastern edge of the Precambrian Shield in central Saudi Arabia. The oldest sequence is called the Bi'r Khountina Group. It consists of conglomerate marble, andesite, and graywacke. Unconformably overlying this group is a sequence of graywacke with minor lava called the Murdama Group. In a small area in the southern part of the quadrangle, these rocks are unconformably overlain by rhyolitic tuff and rhyolite tentatively correlated with the Shammar Rhyolite. The older of these sedimentary and volcanic rocks were intruded by diorite and gabbro and by a large pluton of alkalic granite. A contact...

Before 1953 almost no barite deposits were known in Pakistan. Discovery of such deposits relatively close to oil fields in northern Pakistan in 1953 led to increased barite production from 1957 to 1961 and to doubling of production in 1962, firmly establishing new industry for the country. During 1962 and 1963, most of the known barite deposits in Pakistan were geologically mapped, and minimum reserves were estimated to be 1,423,000 short tons. The largest single deposit, Ehuzdar, is estimated to contain more than 1,100,000 short tons of barite. Barite has been found in Pakistan principally in the Hazara, Khuzdar, and Las Bela districts. Although several vein deposits contain good quality barite, 90 percent of estimated...

From June 24 through August 16, 1960, a regional gravity survey was made in 3,600 square miles of the Snake River Plain in southwestern Idaho. Six hundred and seventy-two gravity stations were established between latitudes 42?30N and 43?30N and between longitudes 115?15W and 116?15W at an average density of one station per 5.4 square miles. The data were reduced to simple-Bouguer gravity by standard methods and plotted as a gravity contour map. Three major anomalies were defined by the survey; two 30-mile long, en echelon gravity highs with amplitudes of 15 and 50 milligals, and one elongated gravity low with an amplitude of -10 milligals. A two-dimensional graticule analysis suggests that the highs are caused...
