A U-V occurrence/mine located in the NE¼ sec. 24, T41N, R19E, G&SRM (Agathla Peak 15 minute topo map), in the Monument No. 1 channel (paleochannel), 1.7 miles S of Gouldings Well, on the ridge W of Kayenta-Mexican Hat Road. Started in 1942 and worked intermittently until 1950. Reopened 1954. Operated by the Vanadium Corporation of America during the period 1942-1950.

Mineralization is a U-V-Cu-Mo deposit hosted in Late Triassic sandstone and conglomerate of the Shinarump Conglomerate Member of the Chinle Formation, in the channel that trends N10W and is some 250 feet wide and 50 feet deep. The ore body is lenticular, 5.49 meters thick, 22.86 meters wide and 205.74 meters long. The channel is filled with medium-grained, massive sandstone. Controls for ore emplacement included "trashy" conglomerate channels near silicified wood, carbonaceous matter, & clay. Alteration (local) includes an unoxidized core surrounded by oxidized mineralization. Local rocks include rocks of the Chinle Formation.

The possible significance of the altered zone has been investigated (Alice D. Weeks, written communication, 1952). Specimens of both the red unaltered and the gray altered Moenkopi formation were chemically analyzed. Mrs. Weeks reports:

At Monument No. 1 mine, both red and gray clay contain quartz, hydromica, chlorite, and kaolinite. Chemical determinations of total iron, ferric and ferrous iron, titanium dioxide, and vanadium pentoxide, made by R. G. Milkey, showed that in all suites of samples total iron and ferric iron are higher in the red than in the adjacent gray sample. Although the ferrous-ferric ratio is higher in all the gray samples than in the adjacent red clay, the ferrous iron does not vary significantly between the red and gray of each set. To alter the red clay to gray, only l percent more or less of ferric iron pigment would have to be leached from the red. Hematite is too small in quantity or too fine grained to show in X-ray patterns of natural red clays.

Mrs. Weeks sought but found no evidence for or against a relationship of the altered zone to ore-mineralizing solutions.


Workings include unspecified underground openings.

Production was a few hundred tons of V ore during the period 1942-1944. Several thousand tons of of ore were produced during the period 1952-1956.

Analytical data results: V:U = 2.5:1. 10 MR/hour maximum or 0.25% to 0.5% U.

Reserve resource information: Some mineralization remains, but too small to justify further exploration.
