PART I. URANIUM RESOURCES AND MINING TECHNOLOGY . 5 CHAPTER 1. URANIUM RESOURCES 7 Introduction 7 Geological types of uranium deposits 7 Uranium resource classification system 13 Uranium resources in WOCA 15 References 18 CHAPTER 2. MINING TECHNOLOGY 19 Types of mining and mining practice 19 Uranium ore bodies.   Since Thorium occurs naturally, it can be mined, and its radioactive properties harnessed. Thorium decays through alpha decay and it is very slow. The decay chain is known as thorium series that will result in a stable Pb. List of Countries by Thorium ReservesAuthor: Joseph Kiprop.   The 16 Biggest Uranium Reserves In The World. Australia now tops the list as the country with the largest quantities of recoverable uranium reserves within its borders. Uranium mining has become a lucrative business for some countries with major reserves of the material, such as Tanzania and Kazakhstan. This book will likely become the preferred reference for the mineralogy and geology of uranium and thorium deposits. It is extremely complete in its descriptions of the minerals, and their localities/5(10).

A Joint Report by the Nuclear Energy Agency and the International Atomic Energy Agency Uranium Resources, Production and Demand Uranium Resources, Production and Demand. Uranium-thorium reports in this next section are either paper-bound or cloth bound as indicated: Papers Presented Everhart, D. L. / URANIUM DEPOSITS IN SEDIMENTARY FORMATIONS OF TRIASSIC AND JURASSIC AGE, Paper presented in St. Louis, Ap , pb, 8 pages, - 3 -, $ The earliest are of the quartz pebble conglomerate-type and are typified by the deposits at Elliot Lake, which belong to the uranium-thorium association. They have uraninite with both uranium and thorium, and represent paleoplacers. Except for some very small occurrences, this type of deposit developed only before 2, Ma ago. Deposits of this type consist of disseminations and veins of uraninite/pitchblendc in volcanic rocks that are commonly felsic and subalkaline to peralkaline felsic in composition, but some potassic alkaline mafic to intermediate rocks also host uranium occurrences.
