Abstract

The Colorado Palteau Uranium Province (CPUP) is defined by the distribution of uranium deposits, chiefly the sandstone-type, in upper Paleozoic and Mesozoic sedimentary rocks within the Colorado Plateau physiographic province (Granger and others, 1986).  The uranium province is bordered by widely distributed and mostly minor uranium deposits in Precambrian and Tertiary rocks and by outcrops of Tertiary extrusive and intrusive igneous rocks.
