Summary

A study of the electrical properties of the Morrison formation in the Uravan mineral belt of the Colorado Plateaus province indicated that there is a significant correlation between electrical resistivity and the relative favorability for occurrence of ore. The differences in resistivity were not large enough to provide a recognizable target for standard resistivity' field methods, especially where the ore-bearing sandstone member is more than a few hundred feet deep. Measurement of resistivity trends by placing one electrode in a drill hole and spreading the others out radially on the surface seemed to offer a means of exploiting the resistivity-favorability correlation. Field tests of such directional resistivity measurements were [...]
