Abstract

Madigan's uranium prospect is situated in a Lower Proterozoic sequence of interbedded sandy shales, sandstone and grits. It is located near the headwaters of the Charlotte River, near the crest and on the eastern side of a northerly trending ridge. Detailed geological and radiometric surveys were carried out and significant radioactivity was outlined over an area of approximately 300 feet by 400 feet. Some channel sampling was done over 50 feet in the zone of highest radioactivity. The greatest radioactivity appears to be associated with hematitic material occurring sporadically in a system of flat joints in a grit bed. Some fluorescent minerals were observed in this material.
