dc.descriptionThe Fern No.1 Mine was located by exploration drilling on Atene Mesa in the Oljeto syncline area of Navajo County, Arizona. The Fern ore body was the south extension of previous located ore bodies on a Utah State School Section within the Navajo Indian Reservation. It had the distinction of producing the largest tonnage (7,584 tons) of high-grade ore (0.77% U30 S) of any uranium mine in Monument Valley. Information and an early map of the mine were recently located in the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) records at the Department of Energy's (DOE) Grand Junction Projects Office. The DOE permitted me to copy the information for the Arizona Geological Survey.
