Description

From synopsis: The discovery of the Rabbit Lake deposit, Saskatchewan, in 1968 and the East Alligator Rivers district, Northern Territory, Australia, in 1970 established the Lower-Middle Proterozoic veinlike-type deposits as one of the major types of uranium deposits. The term "veinlike" is used herein for this type of deposit in order to distinguish it from the classical magmatic-hydrothermal "vein" or "veintype" deposits. The veinlike deposits exhibit distinct geologic features and are now known to include the largest and the richest uranium deposits of the world. At present they account for between a quarter and a third of the Western World's ... continued below
