Techniques and guides in exploration for uranium in Shinarump channels on the Colorado Plateau
Detailed studies have been made of three areas on the Colorado Plateau in which uranium ore deposits occur under similar geologic conditions in the late Triassic Shinarump conglomerate: Circle Cliffs and White Canyon regions of southeastern Utah, and Monument Valley region of Utah and Arizona. Uranium deposits occur in fluvial sediments which fill ancient stream channels incised in the pre-Shinarump erosion surface. These paleostream channels are widespread and variable in size and shape. The formations involved are continental in origin and include the Moenkopi formation, the Shinarump conglomerate, ...
