The flat-lying deposits in sedimentary rocks represent the most important occurrence of the secondary minerals, and the most important deposits of this type are the carnotite deposits of the Colorado Plateau area of Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico, which have been radium, vanadium, and uranium producers since Geologic guides to prospecting for carnotite deposits on the Colorado Plateau / (Washington, D.C.: U.S. Dept. of the Interior, Geological Survey, []), by Doris H.

The carnotite deposits in the Salt Wash Member of the Morrison Formation in southwestern Colorado and southeastern Utah had been mined for radium, vanadium and minor uranium since the 's. During vanadium mining, the uranium in the ores was discarded in the mill tailings.

The rocks of the Colorado Plateau represent a diversity of environmental conditions over hundreds of millions of years. These rocks are well exposed in the many canyons that occur across this region, most spectacularly in the Grand Canyon in northern Arizona (Figure ).The oldest fossils known from the Colorado Plateau region are stromatolites —layered domes of carbonate sediment formed by. These two counties were the centers of radioactive metals mining on the Colorado Plateau, which is an elevated Iandform of sedimentary geology in the Four Corners region. By , the Colorado Plateau yielded 70 percent of the uranium, 98 percent of the vanadium, and nearly all of the radium produced within the United States, valued at $2 billion.

It encompasses an area of approximatelysquare miles in the four corners region of Utah, Colorado. The Colorado Plateau, also known as the Colorado Plateau Province, is a physiographic and desert region of the Intermontane Plateaus, roughly centered on the Four Corners region of the southwestern United province covers an area ofkm 2 (, mi 2) within western Colorado, northwestern New Mexico, southern and eastern Utah, northern Arizona, and a tiny fraction in the.
