The occurrence of vorlanite, cubic CaUO4, is reported in the Nopal I uranium deposit (Sierra Peña Blanca, Mexico). This is the first time this rare calcium uranate has been found displaying a cubic morphology, in agreement with its crystal structure. Vorlanite occurs as nanoscale crystals embedded in U-bearing opal, with a Ca/U ratio of ~1. Association with opal suggests that vorlanite formed at Nopal during late-stage U-mobilization under oxidizing conditions and low (<50°C) temperature. The presence of nanoscale uranate crystals in an environment largely dominated by uranyl silicates indicates that uranates may play a role in uranium scavenging at low temperature. In addition, the occurrence of vorlanite in the crystal shape consistent with its structure provides unique information on its conditions of formation.
