Abstract

Data obtained from temperature surveys in drill holes over two uranium ore bodies are presented as maps of isotherms at depths of 100 feet or more. Temperature surveys in permeable ore bodies above the water table may reveal zones of downward migration of oxygenated water, or zones with a comparatively large retention of pore water. These zones may be associated with an increased amount of oxidation in an ore body which is not completely oxidized.
