About the MRDS Data:
All mine locations were obtained from the USGS Mineral Resources Data System. The locations and other information in this database have not been verified for accuracy. It should be assumed that all mines are on private property.

MRDS mine locations are often very general, and in some cases are incorrect. Some mine remains have been covered or removed by modern industrial activity or by development of things like housing. The satellite view offers a quick glimpse as to whether the MRDS location corresponds to visible mine remains.

Mineral Deposit Model
Comment (Production): As of 1976 the Gas Hills had produced the most uranium in Wyoming and had the largest number of mills and mining operations.
Comment (Identification): Cameco has the Gas Hills-Peach Project. Location is very vague. Likely that this property/project is in the same area as the former Peach Mine (see MINOBRAS, p. 32, 33, #4).
Comment (Identification): Strathmore Minerals has the Gas Hills Project (may contain Red Creek, Bullrush, Loco-Lee, Suns, Jeep, George-Ver, Frazier LeMac, Amazon, Beaver Rim, Day Loma, Andria, New Rock Hills). No 43-101 yet filed, so location and description of property is vague. Only information about this Project is from Strathmore website and press releases (from Strathmore's website).
