Gemini Bridges Moab Uranium Mine

Gemini Bridges Moab Uranium Mine

Gemini Bridges trail is a popular location for off-road exploring and mountain biking in the Moab, Utah area. In this video I go to the geologic feature of Gemini Bridges and to a uranium mine that is right off the trail on the way to this. There are plenty of uranium mines in the area around Moab but most have been sealed up…this one isn’t.

Check out if you are looking for some hot rocks.

    Yeah, not too radioactive, but there will definitely be radon accumulating with that kind of activity. Cool to see the mine!

    It’s called Klondike mine 😊

    Really enjoy watching your videos, coffee on me!

    That was actually a great idea to take the 365 nm UV torch with you. God bless you on your mine journeys..

    Do you organize tours? I’d pay to get an education and experience.

    Beautiful scenery in so many of your videos! 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏😊 I hope you don’t get to glow in the dark…with all those radioactive mines and all 😄😉 I collect pre-1930s radium glass from Bohemia which glows a beautiful green in uv light. I’m looking for a Geiger counter, the best ones cost from upwards $1000 in Switzerland but…every man…should have one 🧪😊 Take care my friend and…keep…safe 👍👍

    Awesome vid.

    Drew, you need a more powerful light! It’s hard to see anything you point out.

    Good camera shot. Oh you walking into the darkness of an abandoned mine with the Geiger counter popping away. Scene out of a horror movie for sure. Nicely done.

    Oh cool! I want to go back to the US and do MOAB again. I actually found a piece of uranium ore on a walking trip there. It’s sitting right next to me in my glass case under a uranium glass bell.
    Always fun when people ask what that ugly rock is. And I point to the green and I say uranium. They all are like: “yeah right”.
    I get my Geiger counter lift the bell and they all freak initial. 😂

    Reminds me of what Pennsylvania looked like years ago when they first started cutting highways into the rock

  13. Devin Shumway on June 3, 2023 at 8:53 pm

    That mine was one my grandpa made in Moab many years ago

  14. David Huber on June 3, 2023 at 8:56 pm

    Nice! 👍❤️

    Great videos my friend keep up the mine hunting so interesting

    We were exploring some BLM land for dinosaur tracks and noticed some of the rocks looked very different with our polarized sunglasses on. Shortly after we stumbled upon a tailings pile and what appeared to be a mine shaft. It all makes sense now. Cool video!!!

    I enjoy all your videos, not just this one 😄

  19. Stas Sirota on June 3, 2023 at 9:08 pm

    that’s so beautiful

    Seems irresponsible to leave it open like that. People might unknowingly go in and stay long enough to get effected. Animals in the area must have 3 heads.

    I have been looking online to figure out *who* operated these mines in Utah. Was this more often a mom-and-pop mine operation – it does not seem that big corporations were involved? Seems like anyone with a wish to get rich / death wish could sign up for it, and they did?

    Short but definitely sweet! The iron staining and mineralisation seems to cover the whole geology of the valley. Remarkable location.
