Posted on Thursday, December 18th, 2014 at 6:40 pm
Having been discovered accidentally in 1954 during a survey to look for petroleum deposits, uranium is among the most valuable minerals productively being recovered across Texas, specifically within uranium-rich areas of Coastal Plain and Trans-Pecos.
During the ’80s, uranium was the second in value among all the metallic elements mined in Texas. Apart from its military usage, uranium is utilized to fuel nuclear power plants across the country. In fact, 9% of the uranium needed by the nuclear power plants across the U.S. were extracted in the country in 2011.Other civilian usages of uranium include production of stains and dyes for wood and leather industries, and a component in lamp filaments for stage bulb lighting.
