A Lead-Uranium Deposit at the White Oak No. 1 Mine, Santa Cruz County, Arizona

Description: From abstract: A small quantity of uranium ore was shipped from the White Oak No. 1 mine, Pajarito mining district, Santa Cruz County, Ariz., in 1952. The uranium is associated with oxidized lead ore in a shear zone that cuts rhyolite 'porphyry of Tertiary(?) age. The uranium minerals -- kasolite, uranophane, dumontite, autunite, and possibly radioactive pyromorphite -- are concentrated along small, discontinuous fractures, and accordingly the ore bodies are small and widely dispersed.
