    Prospecting for Uranium by United States Atomic Energy Commission & The United States Geological Survey Boy, this is discount time travel! I spent about 15 years in the 60's and 70's, off and on, as a uranium prospector. While I never actually used this little book, it would have been very helpful to the tyro prospector back then, and indeed Reviews: 2. a Uranium Prospecting in Henry Mtn.

Botanical prospecting for uranium is a method of finding uranium deposits either by observation of plant life growing on the surface, or by geochemical analysis of plant material.

The history of uranium prospecting, especially in the Colorado Plateau of North America, has seen several methods of identifying likely ore body locations. By Helen L» Cannon ABSTRACT Botanical methods of prospecting for uranium have been developed on the Colorado Plateau by the U. Geological Survey.

Detailed investigation has shown that a relation exists between the distribution of mineralized ground and that of specific herbaceous plants. "The Development of Botanical Methods of Prospecting for Uranium on the Colorado Plateau" (PDF). Geological Survey Bulletin.

Geobotanical methods of prospecting are based on the visual observation and identification of vegetation or plant cover that may reveal the presence of a specific type of sub-surface mineralization.

In this method, it is presumed that a particular variety of plant species is an indicator of a sub-surface uranium molecules.

Botanical prospecting for uranium in the Colorado Plateau has involved two methods, indicator plant and plant analysis prospecting. The best indicator plants for uranium are species of the genus Astragalus that thrive in selenium-rich soils. prospecting the soils, waters, and plants for evidences of enrichment near ore dleposits.

Plant prospecting is being used increasingly on all continents, but the U.S.S.R. greatly surpasses all other countries in the development and use of botanical methods of prospecting in the world today. In this article (1) I shall consider the usefulness of.

In recent years, geobotanical methods have become useful in the peospecting of uranium- ore deposits particularly in areas of dense vegetation.
