A former U occurrence/mine located in T33S, R14E, SLM.

Mineralization is a U deposit and includes quartz sandstone with petrified wood and coalized wood, clays and uranium ores. The mine lies within the boundaries of the Glen Canyon National Recreational Area and was reclaimed in 1992. Mineral collecting has not been allowed since then.
