The Wyoming Geological Survey is set to do a detailed study of the uranium resources in Gas Hills.

The project will include a study of the sedimentary petrology, related stratigraphy, structural history and hydrologic flow history of the Gas Hills mining district in Fremont and Natrona counties.

Geologist Robert Gregory is leading the investigation, which will involve examining regional geology and stratigraphy as well as the processes responsible for the development and mineralization of the uranium deposits.

Expected completion date is June 2018.
