    Where does this yellow color come from? Was this a uranium mine?

  2. Cris says:

    As far as i know, yellow pondlike solutions are made by sulfur compounds. The rock is not the kind from where uranium is found. Uranium mineral comes from sedimentary formations as its very soluble, and thats more common in “dry” countries like Kazakhstan.
    But this rocks looks igneous, common on siberia and other shield like formations.
    This is certainly not an uranium mine

    It would be helpful to identify the trees from the structure, cause it is cheaper to use forests nearby

    This is uranium, high radon levels is this mine.
    Visit only briefly once in your lifetime.

    Et ne tak!
    Uranium occurs in metamorphic, not sedimentary rocks.
    Use google to identify images. AngliskiiRossii ne pravda tovarish. Eta ochen ploha.

    yet again?

  7. Geoguy says:

    Uranium occurs pretty often in sedimentary deposits (sandstones, breccias). Judged just by the pictures it could be Iron oxides too.
