Huskon No. 10 - Yazzie 105 Mine


A former U-V-Cu-Mo occurrence/mine located in the N½ sec. 29, T28N, R10E, G&SRM, near Cameron, W OF LITTLE COLORADO RIVER, 8 MI SE OF CAMERON. Discovered in 1952 by Charles Huskon, a Navajo Indian.

Mineralization is an U-V-Cu-Mo deposit hosted in Late Triassic mudstone of the Petrified Forest Member of the Chinle Formation. primary and secondary uranium species with gangue species in an elliptical and saucer shaped ore body that is 3.35 meters thick, 30.48 meters wide and 441.96 meters long. Uranium is concentrated in lower parts of sandy/silty lenses in scours 250 feet long by 20 feet deep. Some pods are near fossil wood. The highest grade of ore occurs at the base of scours in carbonaceous material. Local alteration includes halos of jarosite, hydrous iron oxides, sericitized feldspar. Trace Mo increases near the ore. Huskon #10 is an irregular, pod-like body within a scour near carbonaceous material & permeability contrasts. NW & NE joints have no relationship to the ore. Local rocks include rocks of the Shinarump Conglomerate Member, Chinle Formation.

Uraninite occurs in carbonaceous sandstone lenses in a irregularly mineralized body 1,450 feet by about 100 feet wide. Mineralization is controlled by concentrations of carbonized plant remains and the permeability of the scour and fill sediments in the SW-NE trending channel cut into the Petrified Forest member and down into the Shinarump member. Minerals noted include carnotite, schroeckingerite, coffinite, zippeite, ilsemmanite stains on halotrichite. There are high contents of Co and Mo near the ore. Carnotite is associated with schroeckingerite in buff-pinkish carbonaceous sandstone. Metatorbernite, meta-autunite, uranophane, sabugalite, becquerelite, and torbernite were also noted.

Workings include surface openings comprised of a 20 foot deep open pit.

Production was 17,083 tons of ore @0.22% U3O8 and 0.06% V2O5 (1953-1961).

High molybdenum content hampered ore processing.
