Get this from a library. Uranium and thorium-bearing minerals in placer deposits in Idaho. [J Hoover Mackin; Dwight Lyman Schmidt]. The glossary is divided into three sections: A, minerals that contain uranium or thorium as major constituents; B, minerals that contain minor amounts of uranium or thorium; and C, minerals that probably do not contain uranium or thorium, but which have been reported to contain impurities or intergrowths of uranium or thorium by: Abstract.

The thorium mineralization in the Lemhi Pass area of southeastern Lemhi County, Idaho, is directed along simple to complex shear and fracture zones, and reopened copper and gold-quantz veins and lodes, in impure quartzitic and phyllitic rocks of. This report is a review of published data bearing on the geology and origin of uranium deposits in granitic, pegmatitic and migmatitic rocks with the aim of assisting in the development of predictive criteria for the search for similar deposits in the U.S.

Efforts were concentrated on the so-called ''porphyry'' uranium deposits. Thorium is a naturally occurring, slightly radioactive element. It is widely distributed in nature with an average concentration of ppm Th in the upper earth’s crust. In general, thorium occurs in relatively small number in Th-enriched minerals: thorite, thorianite, monazite, bastnaesite, and thorogummite.

However, the main world resources of thorium are coupled with monazite and Cited by: 1. Uranium and thorium-bearing minerals in placer deposits in Idaho / (Moscow, ), Uranium and thorium deposits in east-central Idaho and southwestern Montana /, U.S.

As part of the Survey's wartime emphasis on sources of strategic minerals, Mackin studied quicksilver deposits near Morton, Washington, and placer deposits containing radioactive minerals in Idaho.

His major effort, however, which continued after the end of World War II, was on the iron deposits of the Iron Springs district of Utah.

The glossary is divided into three sections: A, minerals that contain uranium or thorium as a major constituent; B, minerals that contain minor amounts of uranium and thorium; and C, minerals that probably do not contain uranium or thorium, but which have been reported to contain impurities or intergrowths of uranium or thorium minerals.

Introduction. Interest in using thorium as a nuclear fuel remerged during the first part of the 21st century.

Thorium-based nuclear power has yet to be fully commercialized despite numerous projects and pilot test reactors designed to evaluate thorium as a viable reactor by: 2.

Deposits enriched in uranium relative to thorium appear as strong positive eU/eTh ratio anomalies, with low K. An example is illustrated in profile and map forms in Figure 5. Other deposits, where both uranium and thorium bearing minerals may occur, produce no eU/eTh ratio anomaly and may have abundant K as shown in Figure 6.

The isotope Th occurs in trace quantities in thorium ores that are mixtures of uranium and thorium. U is a decay product of U and it decays into Th that becomes mixed with the naturally abundant Th It occurs in secular equilibrium in the decay chain of natural uranium at a concentration of 17 : Magdi Ragheb.

Native gold deposits, uranium, thorium, zirconium, and mineral ores for REMs are examples of placer ore deposits that occur in the United States. More REE mineral ores have been discovered associated with placer deposits in the United States than any other deposit type (see Table and Appendix B).

If however, thorium justifies recovery as a once by-product, all of the joint rare earth and thorium refining costs should be allocated to by: 7. The use of thorium as a new primary energy source has been a tantalizing prospect for many years. Extracting its latent energy value in a cost-effective manner remains a challenge, and will require considerable R&D investment.

This is occurring pr. Samarskite group minerals are ordered A 3+ C 5+ O 4 minerals. The difference between the species of the group lies in the occupancy of the A-site. Important note: Britvin et al. (, in press) show, that iron is an essential constituent of samarskite-(Y) - a feature most likely concerning other group members, and thus interpolated from samarskite-(Y) to the general.

Such rocks would be expected to occur along the edge of an ancient continent. The principal mineral deposits found in these rocks include uranium- and thorium-bearing conglomerates that locally contain some gold and diamond, gold-bearing quartz veins, copper-bearing quartzite, and modern gold : The Gem Hunter.

The most common source of thorium is the rare earth phosphate mineral, monazite, which contains up to about 12% thorium phosphate, but % on average. Monazite is found in igneous and other rocks but the richest concentrations are in placer deposits, concentrated by wave and current action with other heavy minerals.

Lesser quantities of environmentally friendly thorium-bearing monazite reserves occur in vein deposits alternative feedstock to uranium and. Radioactive blacks The primary uranium minerals, other than pitchblende and uraninite, occur principally in pegmatites and granitic rocks, and in placer deposits.

Because all these minerals are dark brown to black in color, and because several of them are commonly found toqether in placer deposits, they are collectively known as "radioactive.
