Apatite [Ca5(PO4)3F], titanite [CaTiSiO5], and rutile [TiO2] samples were collected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) from the Coles Hill uranium deposit, Virginia. The samples (in the form of polished thin sections) were prepared and analyzed for direct age dating on a laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (LA–ICPMS) system at the USGS in Denver, Colorado from August 2017 to March 2019.

Major-element and trace-element concentrations in 76 core samples and seven surface samples of rocks from the Coles Hill uranium deposit and vicinity, Pittsylvania County, south-central Virginia are presented as tabular digital data. The Coles Hill deposit is the largest unmined uranium deposit in the United States. The data were collected to 1) characterize the chemistry of variably uranium-mineralized rock units within the deposit and 2) to compare with the chemistry of un-mineralized surface exposures of the same rock units. Cores were sampled in 2017 by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) personnel from archived historical collections of the Virginia Museum of Natural History. Core samples were selected based on measurable...
