CRITERIA FOR OUTLINING AREAS FAVORABLE FOR URANIUM DEPOSITS IN PARTS OF COLORADO AND UTAH By E. McKAT ABSTRACT Most of the uranium deposits in the Uravan and Gateway mining districts are in the persistent upper sandstone stratum of the Salt Wash member of the Morrison formation. Areas in which this stratum is predominantly lenticular have been differen­Cited by: 8.

Energy Commission launched a drive to stimulate discovery and development of uranium in the Colorado Plateau. Mining began again in known uranium country near the Henry Mountains, and prospecting led to the exploitation of several relatively "new" areas such as those in the Circle Cliffs and Poison Springs areas.

Utah is the third-largest uranium-producing state in the U.S., having a cumulative production of about million pounds of uranium oxide (U3O8). Production came to a halt in the early s due to low uranium prices, but a resurgence in the market may be bringing a new period of uranium exploration and production to Utah.

Six stratigraphic units are recognized as favorable for the occurrence of uranium deposits that meet the minimum size and grade requirements of the U.S. Department of Energy in the Cortez 1° x 2° Quadrangle, Utah and Colorado.

The uranium industry also followed the traditional con-solidation evolution from lone prospector to giant corporation.3 The study of company towns also sheds light on some uranium mining communities.

Like their relatives in logging, coal, and copper mining, several uranium companies built new towns to support their workers in remote areas.

Mobility of uranium with ground water in near surface earth conditions and its association with sandstone formations of continental depositional environments require an increase in the understanding and application of depositional characteristics in exploration. This paper, therefore, summarizes significant relationships of uranium geochemistry in the supergene environments and depositional.

Combatting the toxic legacy of uranium mining on the Colorado PlateauWith a half-life of billion years, uranium's toxic legacy of contamination will always be with us. The Colorado Plateau’s communities and landscapes continue to be poisoned by our region’s uranium legacy, which includes thousands of abandoned mines and numerous mill sites, along with polluted soil, air, and water.

Uranium mining and milling is a dirty business, leaving a legacy of decades-old scars on the landscape of southern Utah. Accordingly, this proposed mine expansion should be denied. Please tell the BLM to protect the area’s clean air, scarce water resources, and wilderness-caliber lands rather than ignoring history and approving more pollution.

Uranium mining in Utah, a state of the United States, has a history going back more than years. Uranium mining started as a byproduct of vanadium mining aboutbecame a byproduct of radium mining aboutthen back to a byproduct of vanadium when the radium price fell in the s.

Utah saw a uranium boom in the late s and early s, but uranium mining declined in the s. Colorado – An Agreement State • Colorado became an Agreement State on February 1, ; uranium mill amendment on Ap • Colorado has assumed regulatory authority over the following combination of the categories: – Radioactive materials as defined in Section 11e of the Act.

• Byproduct (11e1) • Mill Tailings (11e2) • NARM (11e3). From abstract: Uranium deposits and radioactivity anomalies have been found in the eastern half of the area underlain by the Browns Park formation in northwestern Colorado, south-central Wyoming, and northeastern Utah.

The deposits are in eolian, lacustrine, and fluvial sandstones, tuffaceous sandstones, and limestones all of which were deposited on two converging pediments during Miocene time.

Because of the common association of uranium and copper in several of the commercial uranium deposits in the Colorado Plateau Province, a reconnaissance was made of several known deposits of copper disseminated through sandstone to determine whether they might be a source of uranium.

In order to obtain more information regarding the relationship between copper, uranium and.
