Uranium occurrences have been identified at the Taurkyr (or Kaplankyr-Tauryuk) Dome near the settlement of Kizyl-Kaya at the western margin of the Karakum Desert in NW Turkmenistan. Kizyl-Kaya is located some 230 km ENE of the town of Turkmenbashy (formerly Krasnovodsk) on the Caspian Sea. U localities include Cernoye, Novodgodny, and Amanbulak, which are of structurally controlled volcanic (or sandstone?) type; and the black shale-type Baïlik occurrence (> Figs. II-1, 14.1). Cernoye was the only deposit mined (see further below).
