    Abstract. This study evaluated environmental impacts from historical uranium mining to soil, water, and air resources occurring on private lands surrounding the North Cave Hills complex within Custer National Forest, northwest South by: 2. GEOLOGY AND MINING IN THE BLACK HILLS Bob Otto The Black Hills of South Dakota and Wyoming rise suddenly out of the prairie and have been described by a number of authors as an “Island in the Plains”. The Black hills are approximately km long and km wide. There is a core of Precambrian rocks that range in age from to

The nearest weather station for both precipitation and temperature measurements is LUDLOW 3 which is approximately 6 miles away and has an elevation of 2, feet ( feet lower than North Cave Hills).). Because the nearest station and this geographic feature Elbert, CO: mi.   Also found on the Black Hills are Jewel Cave and Mount Rushmore. Jewel Cave was formed by the dissolving action of acidic water. The cave hosts an array of speleothems and crystal formations (Geology of Jewel Cave ()).Mount Rushmore is on the edge on the Harney Peak Granite Batholith (Geology Fieldnotes ()).
