An U occurrence/mine located in the NW¼ sec. 15, T29N, R9E, G&SRM, 2.7 km (1.7 miles) NNW of Cameron, on Indian Reservation land.

A small, elongated lens of carnotite-type ore occurs in carbonaceous, argillaceous sandstone in channels cut into the upper Shinarump member. Local rocks include rocks of the Shinarump Conglomerate Member, Chinle Formation.

Workings include surface openings comprised of a 10 foot deep open pit.

Production was 1,780 tons of ore @0.18% U3O8 and 0.02% V2O5 (1954-1961).

Analysis data results: 0.21-0.98% e U3O8; 0.14-0.55% U3O8; 0.2-4.5% CaCO3.
