Abstract

The bibliography consists of annotations or abstracts of selected reports that pertain to the geology and occurrence of uranium in marine black shales and their metamorphic equivalents in the United States. Only those reports that were available to the public prior to June 30, 1956, are included. Most of the reports may be consulted in the larger public, university, or scientific libraries. A few reports that have been released to the public in open file may be consulted at designated offices of the Geological Survey.


An effort has been made to include only those references to shales whose uranium is believed to be of syngenetic origin and whose major source of radioactivity is uranium. Many general papers on the geology of uranium deposits refer to marine black shales, and some of these general papers have been included.
