Abstract

The accompanying 10 tables were prepared during 1953-54 to assist in the appraisal of fluviatile monazite placers in the basin of the Broad River, South Carolina and North Carolina. Principal results have been summarized (Overstreet, Theobald, and Whitlow, 19)9, p. 709- 714). Details of the exploratory drilling of four monazite placers in this area were released in 1953 and 1954 (Griffith and Overstreet, 1955a, p. 3-30; 1953b, p. 3-17; 1953c, p. 3-27; Hansen and Cuppels, 1954, p. 3-27).

The samples described were panned by the writer, his co-workers, and assistants .etween July and November 1931 and April and November 19,2. Co-workers were J. W. Whitlow, W. C. Overstreet, A. M. White, N. P. Cuppels, and D. W. Caldwell. Assistants were J. W. Keeler in 19)1 and B. F. Spradlin, P. E. Myers, and J. W. Wissert, Jr., in 1952. The methods used to collect the samples and pan the concentrates have been described in detail (Theobald, 3.957, p. 3-6).
