Abstract

A first order radioactive anomaly discovered by an airborne scintillometer survey has been examined on the ground by geological, geophysical and geochemical methods. Counts of more than 10,000 per minute, and of 6,000 per minute, have been recorded from two shallow pits sunk on small areas which registered 9 and 6 times background readings respectively, on the surface. A total length of 700 feet of costeans has been bulldozed. No uranium mineralization has been observed either on the surface or in pits and costeans. Inspections by ultra-violet lamp have failed to reveal any fluorescent minerals.
