Explorers termed last Thursday the uranium find near Sundance as perhaps one of the greatest known deposits of uranium ore and valuable rare earth oxide in the world. An atomic energy commission spokesman announced in Washington that the AEC will examine the source of the radioactive ores submitted to it. The examination, however won’t take place until spring. The strike was announced by A.J. Katches, mining engineer of Duluth, Minnesota, who said he made the discovery last August while investigating fluoride deposits. He said that assays have proved the percentage of rare minerals in the find is greater than those known to be mined elsewhere today. The mineral formations were described as being from 50 to 500 feet wide and 900 to 1,200 feet long. Such size made promises of the undertaking becoming the only open pit mine of radioactive ore and rare earth oxide, if commercial operations were to be made.
