      This virtual field trip takes us to the eastern margin of the Front Range, the eastern boundary of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. We'll also see Colorado's famous hogbacks, which are ridges of upturned sedimentary rock. The transition from the Great Plains to the mountains of the Front Range is obvious on any satellite image or geologic map. 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 : Paul Kellogg Theobald, R. T. Chew.

      Genetic factors presumed to be common to these deposits are (1) a source of uranium from the diagenetically altered tuffaceous sedimentary rocks, (2) dissolution and transport of uranium by the alkaline carbonate pore-waters of the ash, (3) precipitation of uranium in reducing environments caused principally by hydrogen sulfide and in part by Cited by:   Uranium Ore Minerals Primary ore mineral The major primary ore mineral is uraninite or pitchblende (UO2 + UO3, nominally U3O8), though a range of other uranium minerals is found in particular deposits. These include Carnotite (uranium potassium vanadate), Davidite-brannerite-absite type uranium titanates, and Euxenite-fergusonite-samarskite.

New Mexico Institute of Mining Mine-life cycle • Geology of uranium deposits— Mineralized pipes range from 30 to meters in diameter. 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.
