"After nearly 60 years resting beside the Colorado River near Moab, Utah, the nation’s largest uranium tailings pile (the unwanted material left after ore is mined) began moving by rail in April to a permanent storage site 30 miles away at Crescent Junction. More than 10 million tons of uranium ore was mined from the site between 1956 and 1988 to help fuel nuclear power plants and fill nuclear munitions."
The mitigation was part of the "The U.S. Department of Energy project, called the Moab Uranium Mill Tailings Remedial Action."
Most of the material was moved by rail on Union Pacific’s Cane Creek Subdivision.

Tough puzzle due to the color schemes, an awesome photo though!


Thank you antlerlady for this wonderful memory!


Nice train in a beautiful setting. The only time I got to use mine tailings, was on a piece of I-70, between Empire and Georgetown, Colorado, in 1966, where I was working as a young highway engineer (Surveyor). We used gold mine tailings in the pug mill, to make asphalt. If people knew then that the road was sorta paved with gold, they would have probably tried to dig up the road, LOL. Thanks, terren.


You are welcome eagleboi. I too love trains and Colorado River country.


Thanks for the info on this great shot of the train and rocky cliffs its going through. Enjoyed solving this.
