Description

A reconnaissance of many of the copper deposits in the Red Beds of New Mexico, Arizona, Oklahoma, and Texas that was carried out in the summer of 1951 yielded chiefly negative results from the standpoint of uranium production. With the possible exception of the Grand View mine, which will require further investigation, none of the deposits seen in this survey gives promise of being of commercial interest for uranium at the present time.
