Several U occurrences that may be defined as modified black shale-type U deposits are reported from the Okchon (Okch’on, or Ogcheon) area, Chung-Cheong-do Province, in central-western Korea. They were explored by drilling and tunneling and reportedly have U resources of 14 800 t U (OECD-NEA/IAEA 1993). Grades are on the order of 200–400 ppm U, locally up to 600 ppm U.
