    Abstract. Estimates of in situ stress in G Tunnel, Rainier Mesa, Nevada Test Site, have been obtained with hydraulic fracturing techniques. This work represents a nontraditional use of hydraulic fracturing in that it was performed primarily in horizontal boreholes drilled into the formation from access drifts tunneled into the mesa rather than the usual operation performed at depth in vertical.

Abstract "July ""Plowshare, civil, industrial and scientific uses for nuclear explosives. United States Army Corps of Engineers"--Cover."Nuclear explosions, peaceful applications."Includes bibliographical of access: Internet. A comprehensive geologic and engineering investigation was undertaken at the site on Buckboard Mesa selected for the SULKY event, a planned nuclear cratering experiment to be conducted in dry basalt.

Foundation conditions were determined by six borings: one centrally located, 6-inch-diameter boring to a depth of 80 feet and five NX-size holes ranging in depth from 59 to : R C Nugent, D C Banks.

[Louis D Carter; Duryl M Bailey; Richard W Hunt; ARMY ENGINEER WATERWAYS EXPERIMENT STATION VICKSBURG MISS.;] -- The site of the Flivver experiment is in basalt on the central ridge of Buckboard Mesa, Nevada Test Site.

A soil layer averaging 2 feet thick covers the site. The report presents results of the detailed postshot geological and engineering investigations conducted by the Army Waterways Experiment Station at the Danny Boy site in basalt of Buckboard Mesa within the Nevada Test site where a nuclear cratering experiment was conducted.
