Evans Huskon #2


An U-V-Mo-Co occurrence located in the SW corner sec. 19, T29N, R10E, G&SRM, 3.6 km (2.3 miles) E of Cameron, adjacent to the Yazzie No. 312. This locality is not listed in the USGS MRDS database. The geographic coordinates presented are approximate to the SW corner of sec. 19.

Mineralization is an U-V-Mo-Co deposit hosted in carbonaceous sandstone lenses in the Petrified Forest Member of the Chinle Formation. Secondary uranium minerals are in an irregular pod-like body, 110 X 300 feet, in a NW-trending paleochannel. Ore control was apparently by the presence of carbonaceous matter and variation of permeability in scour and fill sediments. Skutterudite (smaltite) and ilsemannite have been identified.

Workings include surface openings comprised of an open pit.

Production was 11,777 tons of ore @ 0.18% U3O8; 0.01% V2O5 (1953-1961).
