The purpose of the surveys was to delineate the spread and depth of ore and mill tailings in order that cost estimates could be made for their removal and interim stabilization of the tailings piles. The results of the surveys were prepared in summary form and very little data was made available. This report presents the data and information collected at the former Monument Uranium Mill site. The data includes gamma radiation background measurements, bore hole logging data, ground water analysis, gamma surveys, and radionuclide concentrations versus depth in soil. Interpretation of the data is made where possible. It appears, from bore hole logs, that a substantial amount of uranium is still present at the mill site.
