Abstract

A mineral survey of the Sturgeon River Wilderness study area, Michigan was made using geologic mapping and geochemical techniques. Previous geophysical studies were incorporated in the mineral assessment. The area and surroundings became the focus of intense uranium exploration as the result of major discoveries of a newly recognized type of deposit found in Australia and Canada in rocks very similar to those in the study area. The exploration was unsuccessful.
