A former U-V-Cu-Pb-Mo-Fe occurrence/mine with minor Cu-Mo-Pb-Fe, located W of center sec. 29 & N of center sec. 32, T41N, R23E, G&SRM, in the Monument No. 2 channel (paleochannel), about 1 mile West of Comb Ridge and 2.2 km (1.4 miles) S of Yazzie Mesa (coordinates of record) and 6.4 miles NW of Dinnehotso, 4.5 miles S of the Arizona-Utah state line. Discovered by Luke Yazzie, a Navajo, in 1942 and started during 1945. Reopened in 1948. Leased initially by Vanadium Corporation of America (VCA) in 1942. Operations were closed down in 1967 and the equipment was removed.

Mineralization is the Monument No. 2 channel hosted in Late Triassic De Chelly sandstone of the Shinarump Conglomerate Member Of the Chinle Formation and conglomerate. It is one of the richest U-V deposits in the Monument Valley area. It is a short channel comprised of medium-grained, massive sandstone. The channel strikes N18W and is about 1¾ miles long and lies on the east limb of the Monument upwarp, in en echelon strike and slip vertical faults along the channel. It ranges in width in its central part from 400 feet to 700 feet and has been cut into the underlying strata with a depth of about 50 feet. The ore zone is 15.24 meters thick, 213.36 meters wide, and 3,218.6 meters long. Controls for ore emplacement involved mineralization in bands filling interstices in the sandstone, coating pebbles and fractures. Ore occurs in the bottom of most paleostream channels, commonly with carbonaceous debris. Mineralization extends 7 feet into the De Chelly sandstone. Local rocks include Permian to Pennsylvanian sedimentary rocks.

There are 4 types of ore bodies: rods, tabular, corvusite-type and rolls. Rods are cylindrical bodies about 3 to 5 feet wide and 2 to 3 feet high and 15 to 20 feet long and are found only in the Shinarump member of the Chinle formation. The tabular ore bodies are blanket-like masses composed of channel sediments impregnated with yellow U-V minerals. These are 40 to 50 feet long and range in width from 20 to 30 feet and 3 to 5 feet thick. The corvusite-type ore bodies are irregularly shaped masses within which the rock is thoroughly penetrated by vanadium minerals. Rolls are similar bodies in the Morrison formation.

Workings include surface and underground openings covering an area of 1.84 HA, at a width of 91.44 meters and a length of 213.36 meters and are comprised of an open pit, inclined shafts and adits. A concentrator was operated to upgrade the low-grade mineralization.

Production was 766,998 tons of ore @ 0.34% U3O8; 1.42% V2O5 (1948-1969). This was the largest producer in Arizona @5.2 million pounds of U3O8.

Analytical data results: 0.10-0.58 U3O8; 1.0-2.24% V2O5; 0.4-1.5% CaCO3. U:V ratio = 1:5, low lime.

This deposit was reported as essentially mined out and very limited resources remain along the edges of the mineralized zone.
