The US Geographical Survey has reportedly found Uranium Oxide in Howard County and Martin County. The two known deposits in the Buzzard Draw, located Northwest of Big Spring, and the Sulfur Springs Draw, located near Ackerly, contain a combined total of 2.7 million pounds of uranium oxide.

It was also noted that a new uranium mineral species was also discovered near Sulphur Springs Draw, and the new mineral was named finchite. Which, according to Susan Hall, scientist for US Geographical Survey, has the potential to contribute to the Nation’s energy mix.

According to the USGS description of Finchite, it is a unique combination of strontium, uranium, vanadium, and water, and is a potential source of mineable uranium ore.

It has also been noted by USGS geologist Brad Van Gosen that it had been discovered by uranium mining company in the 1970s but they didn’t feel that it was worth mining. Approximately 40 years later, Hall had been reviewing the companies records when she discovered the references and the USGS followed up on it.

According to Van Gosen, the uranium is within 30 feet of the surface, it’s soft, easy to mine and is easy to process.
