  • The Kootznahoo Formation is potentially an excellent host rock for uranium. It includes permeable sandstone and conglomerate beds together with suitable reductants. Carbonaceous fragments are common in some of the sandstone and conglomerate beds and pyrite is present in a coal bed. Slight epigenetic uranium enrichment is present in some of the conglomerate and sandstone beds and possibly in the coal bed. Surface oxidation would probably have destroyed any surficial uranium deposits, but… CONTINUE READING
