The Lucky Hit Mine Of Jefferson County, Montana, Bruce B. Goddard Jun 1953

The Lucky Hit Mine Of Jefferson County, Montana, Bruce B. Goddard

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Many mines in the Cardwell Mining District have been more or less steady producers of gold, silver, lead and zinc since 18SO. The area first came into prominence with the discovery of gold at the Mayflower Mine in 1896. Soon after the Mayflower discovery, many claims were located in the nearby Saint Paul Gulch area, northeast of Whitehall. The Lucky Hit Mine is located in Saint Paul Gulch area of the Cardwell Mining District.

An Early Tertiary Stream Channel Between Fish And Pipestone Creeks, Ten Miles West Of Whitehall, Montana, Henry D. Olson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Driving between Butte, and Whitehall, Montana, on highway U.S. 10S, one observes an interesting phenomenon in the lower end of Little Pipestone Creek canyon. One side and the bottom of the canyon is cut inthe hard igneous rocks of the Boulder Batholith, and the other side of the canyon is made of unconsoli­dated sand, gravel, and cobbles.

Geology Of A Postulated Volcanic Vent Northeast Of Whitehall, Montana, C. H. Hewitt, H. D. Olson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The possibility of defining the roots of one of the volcanic sources of the Upper Cretaceous Livingston formation led to the detailed mapping upon an enlarged aerial photograph of a complexly intruded, folded, and faulted area about 10 miles northeast of Whitehall, Montana.


The Renova "Syenite" Porphyry Madison County, Montana, James H. Clement May 1950

The Renova "Syenite" Porphyry Madison County, Montana, James H. Clement

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Unique feldspar porphyries, syenitic in appearance, and granitic in composition, form an unusually thick sill intrud­ing pre-Cambrian Belt graywacke about eight miles south of Whitehall in southwestern Montana. Commercial deposits of gold and silver ores occur nearby, and may possibly be genet­ically related to the porphyry, although direct association is not evident. The geologic age is believed to be late Cretaceous or early Tertiary, and the sill may be related to the Tobacco Root batholith.


Structure Of Southwestern Montana, Donald W. Levandowski May 1950

Structure Of Southwestern Montana, Donald W. Levandowski

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Intrusions of granitic rocks on a large scale are commonly found in the central part of folded mountain systems. Igneous rocks, intrusive and extrusive, are widespread in the mountains of southwestern Montana. An examination of the structural pattern of this area indicates that the fold trends form a radial pattern. How and why this pattern formed and its relation to the igneous activity in the area have not yet been discussed in the literature.


Basic Sills In Cottonwoood Creek Canyon, Jefferson County, Montana, Dale F. Kittel May 1950

Basic Sills In Cottonwoood Creek Canyon, Jefferson County, Montana, Dale F. Kittel

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

A stratigraphic section of about 2600 feet of upper Beltian to lower Devonian formations exposed in Cottonwood Creek Canyon 11 miles east of Whitehall, Montana, contains about 20 igneous sills. These sills are from 5 to 20 feet thick, and grade from granogabbro to quartz basalt, except for one sill which is 165 feet thick, and is composed of granogabbro and red syenite. The whole sedimentary series is isoclinally folded, and the sills follow the bedding planes closely with localized crosscutting through the beds.


The Livingston Formation Of The South Boulder Area, Nelson A. Jones May 1949

The Livingston Formation Of The South Boulder Area, Nelson A. Jones

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The Livingston formation is a thick succession of late Cretaceous lava flows, tuffs, and bedded water-laid volcanic detritus 200 miles long and 100 miles wide lying along the eastern margin of the Rocky Mountains in western Montana from Augusta to Yellowstone Park. It differs markedly within short distances in lithologic character and sequences, and the total thickness may exceed one mile in some places.


Geological Report Of Conrow Wood Creek Area 8 Miles N.E. Of Whitehall, Montana, Kenneth M. Judd Jan 1949

Geological Report Of Conrow Wood Creek Area 8 Miles N.E. Of Whitehall, Montana, Kenneth M. Judd

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Plane table and pacing methods were used in the mapping of the individual areas, but an automobile traverse was used to tie the independent areas into a composite group that would be useful for the entire zone. All land marks, section corners, roads, fence lines, drainage, and geologic features were plotted in the field and later transferred to a master map.

The field work was conducted in areas adjacent to White­hall, Montana, as has been the custom for the past several years. Instruction in the proper use of the telescopic and open sight alidades, and the Brunton compass for surveying geologic features was given. Advantages of pacing and speed­ometer mapping were pointed out and used.

A Study On The Origin Of Banded Agate, James E. Driscoll Jun 1938

A Study On The Origin Of Banded Agate, James E. Driscoll

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Agate in any of its varieties presents numerous problems in regard to its origin. Many types have been described and their beauty elaborated upon, but little has been written concerning their formation and the problems involved. The genesis of agate implicates an amazing complexity of physical and colloid­al chemistry, as well as, various principles of geology.

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

In the vicinity of Limespur, Montana, a siding along the Northern Pacific Railroad near Whitehall, Montana, occurs a characteristic type of arkose where­ in many small red mineral grains are distributed throughout the rock mass. It is in this respect that this arkose differs from other arkoses in the surrounding region.

The Jefferson Canyon Gypsum Deposit., Arthur Talpt

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Gypsum deposits are widespread geographically and are in many geo­logic formations. Ordinarily their character and origin, for the most part sedimentary, are not difficult to ascertain. Near Lewis and Clark Caverns, east of Whitehall, Montana, occurs a deposit of gypsum unique in many re­spects.

The Geology Of The Southern Central Portion Of The Morrison Cave Area., Arthur Talpt

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Morrison Cave is located about 50 miles southeast of Butte, Montana. It was named after the man who discovered it. Later it was taken over by the State and renamed Morrison Cave State Park. Recently the government with the aid of the Civilian Conservation Corps has built a new road to the cave and has made the interior more accessible. The name of the cave is now Lewis and Clark Cavern National Monument.


The General Geology Of The Cardwell Mining District, Clyde Congdon May 1935

The General Geology Of The Cardwell Mining District, Clyde Congdon

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The Cardwell Mining District is part of the greater Whitehall Mining District. The district is situated about four miles to the east and northeast of Whitehall in the southern end of the Bull Mountains which are near the Continental Divide. The first reported production was in 1896 after the dis­covery of the Mayflower Mine. Mining has been carried on in­termittently and on a small scale since that time.
