  • Unconventional petroleum deposits found in California are discussed. The presence of diatomaceous oil shales and methods of recovery are described. Locations of these deposits are given. Ultraheavy oil and tar sands are also discussed. The locations of tar sand fields are given. The need for identifying and quantifying the potential of these petroleum resources is presented. (DC)
  • The proceedings of hearings on bill S. 2774 are recorded in this volume. This bill would authorize an accelerated research, development, and demonstration program to advance in-situ technologies for energy production from underground coal deposits and unconventional gas resources. The goals of this bill are a demonstration plant producing 15 million cubic feet/day of synthetic natural gas by 1987 and construction of a commercial plant by 1992. In addition, production of 1 trillion cubic feet of gas/year from unconventional sources by 1990 and 6 trillion cubic feet/year by 2000 are also goals. The advantages of underground coal gasification are: reducedmore » environmental impacts; elimination of mining health and safety hazards; minimizing solid waste disposal problems; less surface destruction; less water usage; production of clean fuel; and reduction of capital expenditures. These hearings are concerned only with underground coal gasification. The full text of the bill is included. (DMC)« less
  • This book explores geochemical achievements in mineral exploration covering both current exploration status and future potential. Early chapters focus on exploration south of the equator, geochemical patterns in the granite terrain of Zimbabwe, and the special problems of exploring for gold. Other topics include detection of concealed mineral and energy resources by vapor chemistry, future use of inductively-coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry, exploration in the shallow marine environment, deep sea mineral deposits, and geochemistry in relation to animal as well as human health.
  • This book comprises papers on the following topics: history of radioactivity; uranium in mantle processes; transport and deposition of uranium in hydrothermal systems at temperatures up to 300/sup 0/C: Geological implications; geochemical behaviour of uranium in the supergene environment; uranium exploration techniques; uranium mineralogy; time, crustal evolution and generation of uranium deposits; uranium exploration; geochemistry of uranium in the hydrographic network; uranium deposits of the world, excluding Europe; uranium deposits in Europe; uranium in the economics of energy; role of high heat production granites in uranium province formation; and uranium deposits.
  • Twenty-three articles are presented. About half the papers are original contributions and the others are reprints that have been updated or expanded by the authors. Several papers considered ''classics'' in the field of petroleum geochemistry are presented. The first six papers treat the principles of organic geochemistry as applied to basin analysis and prospect evaluation. The second group of papers, seventeen in all, documents, with as wide a geographical spread as possible, a great diversity of geological settings and ages as well as depositional environments of source rocks.
