You Can Find Uranium
A non-technical guide written in plain understandable language
Weiss and Orlandi
1948

Finally, all our financial woes can be solved with this DIY uranium mining book. Get yourself a geiger counter and get busy. It’s the Atomic Age, baby! These guys have all the info and suggestions on equipment and all the tips on how to identify geological indicators of uranium. The authors also include some helpful government agencies that will be interested in what you find. (I am sure that the FBI and Homeland Security would be interested in anything you find as well.)

There were a few holding in large public libraries, but most of them were in university collections. It is a cool piece of history for the atomic age.

Enjoy!
