Abstract
Comprehensive field tests were made in the Gas Hills, Wyoming, to determine whether surface geophysical techniques could be used to detect and delineate faults in marginal uranium deposits. The tests were made on property owned by Federal American Partners, Gas Hills, Wyoming, and included seismic refraction, self-potential, induced polarization, magnetometer, electrical resistivity, airborn infrared thermal scanning, and airborn photography. Of the several geophysical techniques tested in the field, horizontal resistivity profiling with electrode spacings in the range of 25 to 50 feet was most diagnostic of faults. The method is quick, cheap, accurate, and one that can be easily used by personnel employed by mining companies to detect and delineate faults.
