Urgeiriça is a village in northern Portugal near the town of Viseu. It is part of the civil parish of Canas de Senhorim, in the municipality of Nelas.

Small uranium mines and a processing plant are located at this village. Radium mined during the early years of this site supplied Madame Curie. During World War II, control of the uranium resources was a source of concern for the dueling countries. Many countries have purchased uranium mined and then processed into yellowcake from this site including Iraq in 1980.
