Abstract

It is concluded that the primary ore formation in the Morrison formation of the San Juan basin, formed during late Jurassic and early Cretaceous, was related to humic-rich pore fluids. The fluids were derived from lacustrine mud-flat facies of the Brushy basin and 'K' shales. The fluids moved into the Westwater Canyon member and the Jackpile sandstone. -K.A.R.
