At various times uranium mills were present in western Colorado and eastern Utah. Old mills were located at Uravan, Gateway, Vancouram and Slick Rock. Newer mills [post RGS era] were located at Vancoram, Uravan, Slick Rock, Durango and Grand Junction. The mill at Durango was converted from the old [~1915-1920?] ASARCO smelter. This is on the south side of the river where the brick stack used to be, and is the area with all the reclamation that we can see now.
