Mary Kathleen was a uranium mine from 1954 to 1984. The township no longer has any buildings, but the streets and concrete slabs are still there.
This delightful ghost town stands on a private cattle property. Please respect the property so that others may continue to enjoy it. No firearms, no cutting down trees. Take note of all signs.

Here is a News Story about the mine, dated 23rd August 2016.
