Uranium prospecting and production in the United States have been largely concentrated in the southwestern states, especially the plateau region of Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico. However, even with meager prospecting, numerous occurrences of uranium materials have been found in the Pacific northwest. These occurrences are in rooks ranging in age from pre-Cambrian Belt series to Tertiary volcanics and lake beds.
