Uranium in the San Juan Basin--An overview
— William L. Chenoweth


The San Juan Basin of northwest New Mexico has been the source of more uranium production than any other area in the United States. Nearly all of the production has come from the Grants mineral belt (fig. 1). This paper describes the geologic setting of the ore deposits in the San Juan Basin, summarizes the growth of the uranium raw materials industry, and reviews the resource base.
