There are a number of oil and gas basins that lay within the CYR study region. Selawik oil and gas basin is considered an eastern extension of the Kotzebue oil and gas basin. However, much of the Selawik basin is located in the Selawik National Wildlife Refuge making development unlikely. Exploration in the Selawik Basin has been minimal with no wells drilled. The Colville Basin runs along the northwestern edge of the CYR study area but exploration within this area is minimal. Wells and exploration in this basin are outside the CYR study area. Doyon has drilled Nunivak #1 and #2 exploratory wells between 2009 and 2013 in the Nenana Basin and acquired 2-D seismic, gravity, magnetics, and lakebed geochemical surveys...
Geochemical reanalysis of historical U.S. Geological Survey sediment samples from the Tonsina area, Valdez Quadrangle, Alaska
The State of Alaska's Strategic and Critical Minerals (SCM) Assessment project, a State-funded Capital Improvement Project (CIP), is designed to evaluate Alaska's statewide potential for SCM resources. The SCM Assessment is being implemented by the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS), and involves obtaining new airborne-geophysical, geological, and geochemical data. For the geochemical part of the SCM Assessment, thousands of historical geochemical samples from DGGS, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), and U.S. Bureau of Mines archives are being reanalyzed by DGGS using modern, quantitative, geochemical-analytical methods. The objective is to update the statewide geochemical database to more clearly...
Major-oxide and trace-element geochemical data from rocks collected in 2010 in the Tyonek Quadrangle, Alaska
Cook Inlet has been recognized as the second-largest petroleum province in Alaska, second only to the North Slope. The south-central Tyonek Quadrangle is an area of significant geologic interest because it is the only location in Cook Inlet where the entire producing stratigraphy of the basin is exposed on the surface. Additionally, this area encompasses the structural boundary between the forearc basin and its sediment source rocks. To better understand the petroleum system and the geologic relationships between the exhumed arc intrusive rocks and adjacent Cenozoic stratigraphy of the Cook Inlet forearc basin, during the summer of 2010 the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys conducted a federally-funded...
Major-oxide and trace-element geochemical data from rocks collected in the Tanacross C-1, D-1, and D-2 quadrangles, Alaska in 2017
From June 12-21, 2017, the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) geologists carried out geologic mapping and geochemical sampling in the northeastern Tanacross D-1, and parts of the C-1, and D-2 quadrangles. The project area lies within the Yukon-Tanana Uplands, and encompasses the boundary between Fortymile and Lake George assemblages. It includes porphyry copper-molybdenum-gold deposits and prospects including: Taurus, Fishhook (also known as SW Pika), and Pika Canyon, and is adjacent to the Fortymile Mining District to the north. Highlights of this geochemical report include sampling and characterization of the Pika Canyon, Fishhook, and Taurus prospects. This dataset contains four samples...
This is an Arc/Info coverage showing the general elevation of the top of the Herrin (No. 6) coal in Illinois. These 100-foot isolines were contoured by Earthvision software using more than 22,000 data points. The data was not contoured using fault lines for control and no manual adjustments were made to the contours to reflect the presence of known faults. Limited data were available in the north central and central portions of the state. This data set is intended for use at a scale of 1:750,000.
Outlines of areas mined for the Springfield coal in Illinois as of January 1, 1996. This information was extracted from detailed coal mine data stored in the ISGS Coal Section library database. Lines delineate the approximate outer boundary of individual mines (if known) or general mined areas. Interior mine boundaries such as pillars or small blocks of unmined coal are commonly not depicted. Outlines have been compiled from a variety of sources. Outlines of areas mined before 1987 are commonly from source maps at scales of 1:62,500 or smaller. Outlines of areas mined since 1987 are commonly digitized at scales ranging from 1:4800 to 1:12,000. Mines whose extent is not known or which only mined a few acres are not...
