Description
English: Mi Vida uranium mine (109°15'35.77"W 38°11'25.07"N) near Moab. Note alternating red and white/green sandstone and mudstone. This color variation corresponds to oxidized and reduced conditions in groundwater fluid redox chemistry. The rock forms in oxidizing conditions, and starts with the red coating. It is then "bleached" to the white/green state when a reducing fluid passes through the rock. The reduced fluid can also carry Uranium-bearing minerals
