Data release of reprocessed select National Uranium Resources Evaluation program samples in Wyoming
The U.S. Atomic Energy Commission established the National Uranium Resources Evaluation (NURE) program in 1973 to identify uranium resources throughout the United States. Part of this program focused on the collection of stream-sediment samples and subsequent geochemical analyses of these samples for uranium, in addition to 47 other elements. As part of the original program, 18,424 stream-sediment samples were collected from Wyoming and analyzed. All original samples are stored at the U.S. Geological Survey’s (USGS) National Geochemical Sample Archive (NGSA). The Wyoming State Geological Survey (WSGS) recently selected 159 of the original Wyoming NURE stream samples to be reanalyzed using modern and standardized analytical equipment. The raw results of the reanalysis are provided with this report.
