Atlas Uranium Mill is a decommissioned uranium mill near Moab, Utahmarker.

The Uranium Reduction Company was built in 1956, four years after prospector Charlie Steen discovered the largest uranium deposit in the United States near Moab, Utah. The company was sold in 1962 and renamed the Atlas Uranium Mill. The mill closed in 1984 when the uranium market went into steep decline.

Uranium ore from this source was processed by the Uranium Reduction Company, and the waste slurry was stored in an unlined pond adjacent to the Colorado Rivermarker. This waste pond is known as the Moab Tailings, and is currently overseen by the U.S. Department of Energy.
