LAS VEGAS (PRWEB) March 6, 2008
Tecton Corporation is pleased to announce that it has expanded its land holdings at the Firefly Project through the acquisition of 207 claims.
Firefly is located in San Juan County Utah, approximately 25 air miles southeast of Moab, Utah. It is situated within the highly prospective La Sal uranium trend lying between the orthogonally oriented Uravan, Colorado, uranium trend to the east and the Lisbon Valley uranium district to the southwest. Together these three areas comprised the most productive uranium regions in the United States with the highest grades and thickest mineable widths. Total production was in excess of 150 million lbs of U3O8, largely from the 1950's to the 1980's.
The Firefly mine was discovered in 1952 as an extension of the Grey Daun Mine. Production records are incomplete; however, it's likely the two mines together yielded something less than 100,000 lbs of U3O8 and 500,000 lbs of V2O5 up through the 1970's. The average grade of the known production was .41% U3O8 and 1.8% V2O5, a gross value of more than $600 per ton at today's prices.
Tecton holds an option to acquire 100% interest in approximately 4,000 acres as 207 unpatented federal mining claims within the La Sal uranium trend. The claims cover both the Firefly Project and the Grey Daun Mine holdings. Tecton plans an aggressive exploration program with the goal of discovering new uranium deposits.
