St. Anthony is adjacent to the Jackpile Mine, the worlds largest reclaimed open pit uranium mine, near the village of Paguate at the Laguna Pueblo in Cibola County near Grants, New Mexico. Surface and ground water monitoring continues to register elevated levels of uranium contamination compared to standards set within compliance.
