A galena-wulfenite-uraniferous-asphaltite horizon in the Magnesian Limestone of Nottinghamshire

  • T. Deans (a1)


The top 2 inches of the Lower Magnesian Limestone is feebly but persistently mineralized along its outcrop from Nottingham to Doncaster, predominantly with galena and a little cerussite, frequently with uraniferous asphaltite containing 0·2 to 1% U3O8. Wulfenite, both platy and pyramidal in habit, occurs at Bulwell and Kirkby in Ashfield. The mode of formation and the age of these minerals are discussed.
