LOW-GRADE URANIUM IN THE FORT UNION FORMATION, CROOKED WASH AREA, NORTHWESTERN COLORADO By William J. Hail, Jr. INTRODUCTION Carbonaceous shale beds in the upper member of the Fort Union Formation of Pal eocene age contain several low-grade uranium occurrences in the Crooked Wash area about 40 km (25 mi) northwest of Meeker, Colo.

[William J Hail, Jr.; Geological Survey (U.S.)]. The object of this book is to report the story of the most fabulous mineral hunt and stock selling spree in all history. It attempts to bring the uranium craze of the early fifties into perspective, put the amateur dreamer back on his feet, prick the bubble of quick millions, and report what the Author: Al Look.

The book arrived in a timely and pristine condition. Moved to the area he covers, about 20 years ago. Never realized all that had occured here. The author does an outstanding job of telling the story of the uranium search, finding and mining. But includes the people behind it and what happened to them.

Cited by: 6. The Colorado Plateau contained most of the uranium and vanadium resources of the United States. However, due to lack of processing capability in the U.S., most of the carnotite produced from western Colorado between and was sent to Europe for.

Uravan is located in west-central Colorado about 90 miles southwest of Grand Junction. A company town created by Union Carbide, the name Uravan is derived from the two main products processed there: uranium and vanadium. The town began, however, as a radium mining camp and only started to extract other minerals when market conditions proved.

Uranium resources of the world is estimated to be million tonnes and the proven resources in India forms 3% of the world resources. The biggest uranium deposit is the Olympic dam deposit in Australia, which contains nearly million tonnes of % U3O8, while the highest average grade of nearly 21% is established in the McArthur river deposit, Canada.

Geology of Uranium Deposits This site contains information on how uranium occurs in a number of different igneous, hydrothermal and sedimentary geological environments. Uranium deposits world-wide can.

An ore sample taken in from a uranium mining tailings pile located west of Naturita, located in extreme western Colorado, an area with a rich history of uranium mining.

For more than 25 years, uranium miners and their families lived and worked in dangerous environmental conditions. Some miners took ill, stricken with diabetes, cancer or other respiratory diseases. The Federal Resources Corporation records () contain the "dead files" of this corporation.

The focus of the materials is primarily uranium and reflect the company's interest in the western states of Alaska, Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Washington, and, especially, Utah and Wyoming.

***O. Jay Gatten, P. Geol., LLC was commissioned by Western Uranium & Vanadium to prepare an Independent Technical Report compliant with the Canadian National Instrument, on the San Rafael Uranium Project, an advanced-stage uranium property. The report was finalized on Novem and filed on on Novem Activists often quoted a statement issued by the Larimer County Medical Society in Fort Collins, Colorado, which claimed that communities engaged in uranium mining have suffered a “documented.

Elevation: 6, Feet (1, Meters) Primary Mineral: Uranium Lat, Long: Uranium is found in more than a dozen sedimentary strata on the plateau but the Morrison formation of late Jurassic age and Chinle of Triassic age account for 95% of the produced uranium.

The Morrison was formed from the erosional sediments derived from a highlands called the Elko that existed along what today is the Utah-Nevada border.

“Depleted” uranium has a lower percentage of U and U than natural uranium. DU is about twice as dense as lead, making it useful in commercial and military applications. Uranium in a form that dissolves easily can be toxic to the kidneys if ingested in large amounts, such as by inhaling dust or drinking contaminated water.

water and the processes involved. Low-grade uranium deposits are found in several areas of the Española Basin in the Tesuque Formation and actually form the San Jose mining district (Fig. 1; McLemore and Chenoweth, ). Low-grade uranium deposits also are found in the Proterozoic rocks in the San Jose and Nambe.

Uranium mine will hurt Fort Collins the groundwater has led to a high rate of cancer and neurological problems in the area. depositories have resulted in the formation of dry, sandy. The Cameron uranium-mining area is centered around the settlement of Cameron, Arizona, which is 52 miles north of Flagstaff (Figure 1).

This area contains numerous uranium ore deposits in the Upper Triassic Chinle Formation. Cameron is the fourth largest area on the Colorado Plateau that produced uranium from this geologic unit. 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. These units include the Jurassic Salt Wash, Recapture, and Brushy Basin Members of the Morrison Formation and the Entrada Sandstone, the Late Triassic Chinle.The U.S.

Geological Survey explored the Atkinson Mesa area for uranium- and vanadium-bearing deposits from July 2,to Jwith diamond-drill holes that totaledfeet. Sedimentary rocks of Mesozoic age are exposed in the Atkinson Mesa area. They are: the Brushy Basin member of the Upper Jurassic Morrison formation, the Lower Cretaceous Burro Canyon formation.

Most uranium mines in Colorado have long been out of operation, and as operators hope the price of uranium recovers, environmental watchdogs say it’s time to reclaim the land.
