Lisbon Valley genes

With the resurgence in the price of uranium, Universal Uranium has returned to one of the most prolific uranium mining districts in the U.S. -- Utah's famed Lisbon Valley.

The district was once home to 16 uranium mines, which produced more than 103 million lbs. of U3O8. Prospector Charlie Steen was responsible for igniting the first uranium boom in the district back in the early ’50s with his discovery of the Mi Vida mine. By hiring his son, Mark Steen, as the company's senior technical advisor, Universal hopes there is still some luck left in those Steen genes. Staff writer Anthony Vacarro travelled to Utah to check on Universal’s good fortune. These are his photographs.
