Electroplates on Thorium

Description: Abstract: "The protection of thorium in hot water was studied. Copper electrocladding on thorium offers promising protection against hot water. The corrosion of thorium in 95 C water was reduced appreciably by a thorium phosphate film. The results of this abbreviated investigation offer a basis for the development of a method of protecting thorium at elevated temperatures in corrosive media."

Estimation of Small Quantities of Uranium in Thorium

Description: Abstract: "Estimation of the intensity of the uranyl fluorescence furnishes a method for the determination of quantities of uranium as low as one-half microgram of uranium in one-half illilitor of glassy phosphoric acid. The test has been used to detect directly three parts of uranium in one million parts of thorium" (p. 1).

A Conceptual Design of a Thorium-Uranium (233) Power Breeder Reactor

Description: From abstract: A conceptual design study has been performed for a sodium cooled, graphite moderated, thermal power-breeder reactor utilizing the Thorium-Uranium 233 breeding cycle. Several aspects of the design of the system are considered but no attempt has been made to supply all the details. It appears that the design presented is feasible and will allow the production of economic power as well as full utilization of thorium resources.

[Wyoming Uranium Evaluation] Volume 3: Uranium Assessment for the Precambrian Pebble Conglomerates in Southeastern Wyoming

Description: From introduction: The Geology Department of the University of Wyoming was asked to make a geostatistical assessment of the uranium endowment of these deposits as a part of the World Class core drilling operations of the Bendix Field Engineering Corporation. This study was to include (a) the development of optimum geostatistical methodology for assessing uranium endowment in areas of close drill control (1 mile or less centers) as well as in areas of distant drill control (5 mile centers or more), (.b) the implementation of this methodology in assessing the uranium resources of the pebble conglomerates in southeastern Wyoming, and (c) the determination of the overall geostatistical uncertainty of the resource estimates. In addition, methods were to be studied for projecting the assessments into new areas, including prediction of estimate uncertainty.

Genesis of the Bokan Mountain, Alaska Uranium-Thorium Deposit

Description: From preface: This study was funded by the Department of Energy through Bendix Field Engineering Corporation subcontract 78-245-E dated September 20, 1978. The project is part of the National Uranium Resource Evaluation (NUBE) Program conducted by Bendix for the Department of Energy and is specifically part of an effort to geologically define and explain the significant occurrences of uranium throughout the world.

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.

Corrosion of thorium and uranium during long-term storage

Description: From introduction: "The over-all objective of the present study was to determine the nature and extent of the present study was to determine the nature and extent of the corrosion of these materials under a variety of such storage conditions and to determine the ability of several potential protective coatings to retard this corrosion."

The crystal structure of thorium nitrate

Description: From introduction: "Studies were made of single crystals of thorium nitrate hydrate which we had available in this laboratory and from these we were able to determine the unit cell and find the thorium positions. These crystals contain on the order of six water molecules per thorium atom, but the exact composition is in some doubt."

The Determination of Small Amounts of Thorium in Some Uranium Materials

Description: Abstract: "A method for the determination of small quantities of thorium in the presence of large quantities of uranium is presented. Solid samples are dissolved in an appropriate acid. Reducible metals are removed by means of a mercury cathode. Excess acid is removed by fuming to dryness. The residue is dissolved in water and made alkaline with saturated ammonium carbonate solution, thus complexing the uranium and permitting the precipitation of thorium hydroxide with the aid of an aluminum hydroxide carrier. Thorium is determined colorimetrically with thoron."

The Determination of Tuballoy in the Presence of Thorium in Peroxide Effluents and Cakes

Description: Abstract: "A polarographic method for the determination of tuballoy in thorium peroxide cakes in all sold medium was found to give satisfactory results. Fluorescent analyses on effluents containing thorium gave good results if the thorium content was kept below 1 mg/liter."

Evaluation and Consolidation of Electrolytic Thorium

Description: Abstract: "Sound, fabricable ingots of thorium were produced by triple are melting of electrolytic thorium. Consumable electrodes were fabricated by tack welding of cold-pressed and vacuum-sintered bars of the granular thorium electrodeposited from a molten-salt bath. The hydrogen content of the electrodeposited material was reduced from 80 to 4 ppm by vacuum sintering at 1250 C at pressures below 1 x 10-(-3) mm of mercury. Both sodium and chlorine content were reduced during melting; sodium from 250 to 25 ppm and chlorine from 1000 to 30 ppm. Oxygen and HCl acid-insoluble contents increased during sintering and melting. Oxygen content increased from 0.35 to 0.50 w/o and HCl acid-insoluble content from 0.8 to 4.0 w/o. A starlike includion revealed by metallographic examination of the as-cast thorium was identified as ThO2."

The Heat of Formation of Thorium Sesquisulfide

Description: Abstract: "The heat of solution of thorium sesquisulfide was determined in 6.000 molar HCl at 25 C to ascertain the stability of the thorium (III) halides. The molal heat of formation of Th2S3 from rhombic sulfur and crystalline thorium is calculated as 258.6 kcal."

The Geological Survey's Work on the Geology of Uranium and Thorium Deposits

Description: From abstract: The Geological Survey has been studying the geology of uranium and thorium continuously since 1939, when it began a comprehensive investigation of the vanadium-uranium deposits of the Colorado Plateau. Greatly increased demand for uranium arising from the advent of controlled fission in 1942 resulted in widening of the study in 1944 to include other possible sources and in further expansion on behalf of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission since 1947. The wide variety of materials investigated in this study are embraced by five somewhat arbitrary groups of related types of deposits as follows: (1) Igneous rocks, pegmatites, veins, and related deposits; (2) Deposits in sandstone of carnotite, copper-uranium, and other minerals; (3) Other consolidated sedimentary rocks; (4) Placers; and (5) Natural fluids.
