Grants Uranium Mining District

New Mexico Uranium Drilling

Grants, New Mexico 1950s – 1990s

From the 1950s through the late 1990s, the Grants Uranium Mining District was the primary location of uranium extraction and production activities in New Mexico. Several mines make up the Grants mining belt, which spans along the southern margin of the San Juan Basin in Cibola, McKinley, Sandoval, and Bernalillo Counties. Second to Wyoming, New Mexico has the highest Uranium reserves in the United States. Today, the New Mexico Mining Museum in Grants helps preserve the history, significance, and legacy of the atomic heroes who worked in the mines.
