SEISMIC PROPERTIES INVESTIGATION OF THE SPRINGER RANCH LANDSLIDE, POWDER RIVER BASIN, WYOMING By C. H. MILLER, A. L. RAMIREZ, and T. F. BULLARD ABSTRACT A recent and rapid increase since the mid's in commercial and residential development in the Powder River Basin, Wyoming and Montana, is caused by exploitation of vast coal and otherAuthor: C.H. Miller, A.L. Ramirez, T.G. Bullard. Exploitation of vast coal and other resources in the Powder River Basin has caused recent, rapid increases in population and in commercial and residential development and has prompted land utilization studies. Two aspects of land utilization were studied for this report: (1) the seismic and geotechnical properties of a landslide and (2) the seismic, magnetic, and geotechnical . elastic properties derived from pre-stack inversion of the. I. nterest in the Powder River Basin (PRB) of Wyoming, Northwest USA, has been increasing in recent years, as it is a mature basin with a number of prolific stacked plays, coupled with the promise and opportunity of a few key emerging plays. The Mowry Shale is one of the.   French Creek provided most of the irrigation for the ranch, and runs along the base of the Bighorns. A stratigraphic section of the Powder Creek Basin can be found at the Wyoming Geological Survey website. A common type of rock found in this basin is called “scoria” colloquially known as “red dog,”.
