Uranium deposits of Temple Mountain

Update item information
Author Robeck, Raymond C.
Title Uranium deposits of Temple Mountain
Date 1954
Description Temple Mountain is a prominent topographic feature on the southeast flank of the San Rafael Swell in Emery County, Utah, the outline of which resembles the Temple at Salt Lake City. The existence of uranium in this area has been known for many years, but mining at Temple Mountain in the early part of this century was solely for radium and a little later for vanadium. Since 1947 a considerable amount of ore has been mined for the uranium and vanadium content. Information presented here was obtained in part from the geologic investigations connected with the study of the uranium deposits by the U. S. Geological Survey on behalf of the Division of Raw Materials of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission.
