dc.descriptionThe Jack Daniels open pit uranium mines are located in the Cameron area, Coconino County, Arizona. The host rocks for these deposits was the Petrified Forest Member of the Triassic Chinle Formation. The No.1 mine produced more uranium than any other mine in the area. The Nos. 3 and 4 mines had minor production. The No.5 mine was a later extension of the No.1 pit. Unlike most mines in the Cameron area, these mines were not named after the Navajo permittee, but after a discarded whiskey bottle found at the original discovery site. The purpose of this report is to give the correct location of the No. 3 mine and to continue the ongoing study of the history of uranium mining on the Navajo Indian reservation. Location The Jack Daniels No. 1 mine, and adjacent Nos. 4 and 5 mines, were located approximately two miles north, northeast of the settlement of Cameron, Arizona (Figure 1). On the Cameron North quadrangle (USGS, 1988) the water-filled No.1 pit is shown on the east side of U.S. Highway 89 north of Benchmark 4191. The correct location of the No. 3 mine was 2.9 miles east northeast of the No. 1 mine (Figure 1).
