Summary

Beginning in November of 2015, a project was undertaken to reanalyze approximately 60,000 archived sample splits collected as part of the National Uranium Resource Evaluation (NURE) Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance (HSSR) project from selected areas in Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah. A small amount (approximately 0.25 g) of sieved -75 micron sample material was retrieved from the USGS National Geochemical Sample Archive for geochemical analysis. These samples were analyzed for 51 elements under a Technical Assistance Agreement with a third party by ALS Global laboratories using their ultra-trace four-acid-digestion dual-mode ICPMS (ALS ME-MS61L) method (Ag, Al, As, Ba, Be, Bi, Ca, [...]

Purpose

The purpose of this data release is to make the reanalyzed NURE-HSSR data publicly available. The data from this effort complements the NURE-HSSR database (Smith, 1997) and analytical data from other existing USGS data sets. These data may be useful for facilitating geologic mapping, mineral resource assessments and favorability, definition of geochemical baseline values and statistics, environmental impact assessments, and studies in medical geology.
