Abstract

Numerous uranium veins occupy fractures and faults in brittle Proterozoic gneisses along the east central Front Range of Colorado. The deposit size correlates with the density and localization of brittle fracture. The largest deposit, the Schwartzwalder, is explained by a singular configuration of complexly broken, deep-reaching brittle gneisses between impervious schists. The gneisses are described as being derived from volcanic rocks, shales, and chemical sediments, including iron, quartz and sulphide formations.-G.J.N.
