Estimated Manufacturing Costs for the Recovery of Thorium and Uranium from Monazite Sand

Description: Abstract: "Costs have been estimated for the production of uranium and pure thorium from monasite concentrates by a process involving (1) reaction of monasite with caustic soda, (2) dissolution of the hydrous oxides in hydrochloric acid, (3) separation from the bulk of the rare earths by hydroxide precipitation of thorium and uranium, and (4) purification by solvent extraction."

Final Report on Recovery of Thorium and Uranium From Monazite Sand : Volume 1

Description: Report describing a method for recovery of high yields of thorium and uranium from monazite sand concentrates. Monazite is decomposed into hydrous metal oxides, which are dissolved in an acid. The solution is then separated into a precipitate, which seperates from thorium and uranium. An alternate separation method is evaluated.

Zirconium Research and Development : Progress Report

Description: From introduction: "This is the ninth monthly report, BMI-514, under Contract No. AT(30-1)-771 on "Zirconium Research and Development". The report covers the work period from September 15, 1950, to October 15, 1950. Work is continuing on the preparation of large-diameter zirconium crystal bars in the 16-inch-diameter de Boer unit. Crystal bars up to 1-5/16 inches in diameter and 8 feet long have been prepared in this unit."

Progress Report on Refining of MgX and Other Uranium-Bearing Materials

Description: Abstract: "The effects of acidity on extraction of vanadium and molybdenum by diethyl ether are described. Solubility data for several vanadium compounds in nitrate process solutions are presented. Preliminary results on the extraction of uranium from process slurries by tributyl phosphate are reported, including data on the contaminants extracted with the uranium."

Progress Report on Refining of MgX and Other Uranium-Bearing Materials

Description: From abstract: "Results of tests investigating the effects of feed and scrub acidities on the extraction of uranium and contaminants from process slurries by tributyl phosphate-Gulfspray Naphtha in a Scheibel continuous extractor are described. Studies on the fractional precipitation of MgX from a dilute sulfuric acid system throw considerable light on the probable constitution of MgX. Further data on the effect of acidity on the extraction of molybdenum and vanadium into ethyl ether are presented.

Progress Report on the Concentration of Pitchblende

Description: Abstract: "The results of leaching studies on sulphide froth products obtained from the flotation of high-sulphur pitchblende are presented. The distribution of molybdenum in flotation products is also given. The flotation test at Middlesex is evaluated."

Topical Report on Refining of MgX and Other Uranium-Bearing Materials

Description: This report discusses a study which explores the effects of feed and acidity on extractive methods. From abstract: "Results from fractional precipitation of MgX from dilute sulfuric acid solutions indicate that, in the presence of sufficienct iron, phosphate is precipitated as ferric phosphate, and not as uranyl phosphate."

The technology of thorium

Description: A report describing the technological uses of thorium. The report details interest in thorium as a potential source of the fissionable isotope U233 as well as possessing other applications. Most of the information in this report was obtained from project literature and from unpublished data available to the authors.

Mineralogical Examination of Pitchblende Concentrates and Nitric Acid Digest Residues

Description: This report has two parts to it discussing mineralogical examination of pitchblende concentrates and nitric acid digest residues. Part I gives the results of a cursory examination with the petrographic microscope of samples of pitchblende concentrates and residues to see if there is a relationship between the mineral composition of the samples and the filterability of the residue. Part II gives a revaluation of the data in Report BMI-241 on the mineral composition of two residues from the nitric acid digestion of pitchblende concentrates at the Rallinckrodt Chemical Works.

Engineering Properties of High-Density Concretes

Description: From summary: "Methods were developed for measuring various engineering properties of high-density concretes. Data are presented on selected thermal properties of a limonite-iron concrete and the mechanical properties of the limonite-iron concrete, a magnesium oxychloride concrete, and a Portland cement concrete containing steel punchings and shot (no limonite)."

Grain Refinement of Uranium by Alloying

Description: Binary alloys of uranium with 38 elements in the range 0.01 to 1.0 at.% were made. Three alloys having nominal compositions of 0.01, 0.1, and 1.0 at.% were made with most of the elements, and in addition, 12 ternary and quaternary alloys were made. The alloys were cast, rolled to 7/8-inch-diameter bars, heat treated, and examined for grain size.

Jacketing of Uranium for High-Temperture Service

Description: From introduction: "The work covered in this report is a portion of the experimental research undertaken for the design of a uranium-containing metallic fuel rod for operation in air at 1090 C...This report deals with that phase which involved the testing and evaluation of various metals as barrier costs between uranium alloys, and low-carbon steel. The work is of a preliminary nature and is concerned more with a comparison of the various barrier metals than with the acquisition of numerical data, e.g., diffusion coefficients."
