      Uranium in the Nacimiento-Jemez region of north-central New Mexico occurs in rocks of Pennsylvanian, Permian, Triassic, Jurassic, Cretaceous, and Tertiary age. Deposits consist of uranium minerals disseminated in sandstone, siltstone, carbonaceous shale, coal, and limestone and in association with carbonized plant debris in sandstone and in.

From abstract: Forty-five areas of radioactivity in New Mexico had been investigated by government geologists or reported in the geologic literature before 21 areas contained visible uranium minerals and one contained thorium minerals. The occurrences were in the northwestern, north-central, central, southwestern, and southeastern parts of the State.

Uranium occurrences of the Nacimiento--Jemez region, Sandoval and Rio Arriba Counties, New Mexico. New Mexico has world class uranium deposits in the Grants district and ranks 2nd in uranium reserves in the United States, which amounts to 64 million short tons of ore at % U 3 O 8 ( million pounds U 3 O 8) at $50/lb (according the the U.S.

Department of Energy).However, approximately million pounds of uranium resources remain in the Grants district as identified by companies in.

Over uranium and thorium occurrences are found in over formational units in all but two counties, in all 1- by 2-degree topographic quadrangles, and in all four geographic provinces in New Mexico.

Uranium production in New Mexico has surpassed yearly production from all. The Ore Deposits of New Mexico $ Radioactive Mineral Occurrences of Colorado Uranium $ An Occurrence of Limburgite in the Cripple Creek District $ Radon gas, emitted by uranium ores, is a hazard to sminers and must be monitored and controlled by circulating large amounts of fresh air in underground mines.

Uranium is recovered from the groundwater that enters deep underground mines such as those in New Mexico. The water is collected in sumps and pumped to the mill for processing.

Bitumens occur with a wide variety of ores, including deposits of base metals, mercury, uranium, gold and other precious metals. The papers included reflect this variety of bitumen occurrences and the potential for obtaining useful data from them.

1 U 3 0 8 is the symbol for a chemical compound, uranium oxide, composed of three atoms of uranium to eight atoms of oxygen. Most chemical assays for uranium are expressed in terms of U 3 0 8, and ore purchases are made on that uranium content equals approximately 85 per cent of the assay expressed in terms of U 3 0 8.

New Mexico uranium miners from the s and s have had abnormally high rates of lung cancer, from radon gas in poorly ventilated underground mines. The effect was particularly pronounced among Navajo miners, because the incidence of lung cancer is normally low among Navajos.

The Navajo tribe, whose reservation contains much of the known ore deposits, declared a moratorium on uranium.

Uranium mining is the process of extraction of uranium ore from the ground. The worldwide production of uranium in amounted to 60, tonnes. Kazakhstan, Canada, and Australia are the top three producers and together account for 70% of world uranium production.

Other important uranium producing countries in excess of 1, tons per year are Niger, Russia, Namibia, Uzbekistan, China.
