The Wray Mesa Project

Location Map

Accessibility, Climate, Local Resources, Infrastructure and Physiography

The property can be accessed from either Colorado or Utah. Access from Colorado is via State Highway 90 west out of Naturita, CO for about 30 miles until the highway enters Utah and becomes Utah State Highway 46. Travel another 3 miles until a San Juan County road labeled “Wray Mesa” enters on the south, or left. Access from Utah is via the aforementioned Highway 46, which starts at La Sal Junction, and is about 20 miles south on US Highway 191 from Moab, Utah.

Underground mining took place on the Property from the late 1970’s to the late 1980’s. The mine was named the Geo 1 Mine and maps obtained from the last lessee indicate that Pioneer Uravan, a historic area uranium mining company, was active at the mine from about 1977 to 1979. State permitting documents available on the web (http://drmsweblink.state.co.us/drmsweblink/0/doc/485046/Page1.aspx?searchid=09e3afb7-9cf1- 47a9-8d64-f69998cec4df) indicate that Pioneer Uravan received a mining permit in January of 1979 for the Geo 1 Mine.

Geological Setting and Mineralization

Because of the presence of uranium and vanadium in the region, the project area, along with the parts of southwest Colorado and southeast Utah, has been intensively studied by both public and private-sector investigators. Principally leading the public sector workers were geologists of the USGS and of the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) during the 1940’s through the 1970’s.
