Uranium mine with copper, cobalt and nickel ores, 1915-1960.
About 656 m.y. ago the first important amounts of uranium, cobalt, nickel, iron, and copper were deposited. 602 m.y. ago the second era of uranium, cobalt and copper formation took place in which, curiously, nickel is absent. From then on until the present days the primary minerals are changed into secondary minerals.

The mine was officially closed in 2004, but artisanal mining continues.

Most of the uranium necessary for the production of the "Little Boy" atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima came from the Shinkolobwe mine.

The Mindat icon marks the old flooded open pit.

Note on the mineral list: Zeunerite and beta-uranophane are not known from Shinkolobwe (see http://www.mindat.org/mesg-12-391438.html).

Geochronology

Mineralization age: Phanerozoic : 480 ± 3 Ma to 65 ± 1 Ma

Important note: This table is based only on rock and mineral ages recorded below and is not necessarily a complete representation of the geochronology, but does give an indication of possible mineralization events relevant to this locality. As more age information is added this table may expand in the future. A break in the table simply indicates a lack of data entered here, not necessarily a break in the geologic sequence. Grey background entries are from different, related, localities.
