dc.descriptionThe Alma-Seegan Mine was one of several uranium deposits located by exploration drilling in the Oljeto syncline area of Monument Valley, Navajo County, Arizona. The mine, which contained orebodies on two separate claims, was the last uranium mine to commence production in the area. Since it was mined late (1965-66) in the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission's (AEC) ore-procurement program (1947-70), very little information was developed about this mine. U.S. Bureau of Mines (USBM) mine inspection reports in the Navajo Indian Reservation mines' files of the former U.S. Geological Survey Conservation Division (USGS) now stored in the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) archives in Phoenix, Arizona, provided additional information on activities at the mine. This report summarizes the available information from AEC and USBM documents, and is to correct the misspelling of Seegan found in Scarborough (1981).
