Uranium Mania

America's explosive successes in peace and war were fueled by the radioactive wealth from the Colorado Plateau. The mineral carnotite was a 'Pandora's rock' of scientific, medical, industrial, and military power for 20th Century America with its unleashed resources of radium, vanadium, and uranium. Even though the energetic and frenetic mining and refining of uranium ore in Western Colorado has mostly ceased, its remaining trace elements of memory and controversy still radiate from Uravan and Grand Junction throughout the state, the nation, and the world.
