This guidebook reviews the geologic setting of South Texas uranium, as it is presently understood, as a preface to visiting stops selected to illustrate mineralization style and host geology. In addition to giving an overview of the district, the stops provide a thematic focus for discussion of structural, stratigraphic, and hydrologic features of the South Texas Uranium Province.

Stop 1: Panna Maria Project (Chevron)--Genetic stratigraphy and mineralization pattern of a marginal marine host (Jackson Group).
Stop 2: Road cut exposures of Catahoula paleosoils--Source and mobilization of uranium.
Stop 3: Gravel pit in axial Oakville channel system--Facies and hydrology of Coastal Plain fluvial systems.
Stop 4: Felder Uranium Mine (Exxon)--Mineralization of a fluvial host in an area of faulting and complex hydrologic history.
Stop 5: Road cut exposure of lower Goliad Sand--Exploration potential of the Plio-Pleistocene section.
