Dakota sandstone with a fluorite cement containing Th, U, and Zr occurs in the proximity of a Tertiary hypabyssal rhyolite stock at the southern end of the Wet Mountains. Field relations and proximity to the stock suggest a hydrothermal origin for the mineralization. Regional mapping indicates the age of intrusive activity is mid-Tertiary, and possibly younger.
