Cleveland, D.M., Hinck, J.E. and Lankton, JS. 2018, Chemical analyses and histopathology of small rodents, vegetation, and soil collected from the Kanab North breccia pipe uranium mine in the Grand Canyon watershed: U.S. Geological Survey data release, https://doi.org/10.5066/F7X0660R.

Summary

These data are comprised of measurements of aluminum, iron, cobalt, nickel, copper, zinc, arsenic, selenium, molybdenum, silver, cadmium, thallium, lead, bismuth, thorium, uranium, and mercury in soil, vegetation, and small rodents. Gross alpha activity, gross beta activity, and radionuclide activities (isotopic U, isotopic Th) are also presented for vegetation and soil. Radioactivities for small rodents were previously presented at https://doi.org/10.5066/P99GDFWB. The data also include histopathological analysis of liver tissues collected from small rodents. Samples were collected at the Kanab North Mine and Canyon Mine (post-mining, pre-reclamation) in the Grand Canyon watershed.

Purpose

These data were obtained to assess radionuclide and element concentrations in soil and to document liver histopathology in small rodents as a result of U mining in the Grand Canyon watershed. Results are reflective of site conditions at the time of collection.
