Complexing Agents for the Solvent Extraction of Uranium from Thorium. I. The Use of Thiocyanate in the Extraction of Uranium. II. The Use of Antipyrine in Solvent Extraction

Description: Abstract. In the first section of this technical report a new method of extracting uranium from thorium nitrate solution is discussed. This method consists of extracting an aqueous solution of thorium nitrate, nitric acid, sodium sulphate, and potassium thiocyanate with hexone. By this procedure, using an equal volume of hexone it is possible to extract 83 percent of the uranium while only 0.3 percent of the thorium is extracted. other experiments show that even greater separations are possible. In the second section of this report the use of antipyrine in solvent extraction procedures is discussed. Experiments are described in which 90 percent of the uranium is extracted while the thorium is extracted to the order of 3 to 5 percent.

The Heavy-Water Homogeneous Pile: a Review of Chemical Researches and Problems

Description: Technical Report: A generalized review of the chemical problems and researches related principally to the heavy water homogeneous pile is presented herewith. The report covers researches performed principally by the Columbia Group who initiated the study. This report contains a chronological outline of the development, a discussion of some special topics whose significance is paramount in any slurry pile discussion, and finally an outline of important research problems remaining, roughly graded in order of their importance. No attempt has been made to be either complete or detailed in the discussion. The emphasis has been principally on furnishing a broad guide to those who may t some future date take up this work.

Location of uranium occurrences in southcentral Wyoming and northwestern Colorado

Description: "The principal uranium deposits in southcentral Wyoming and north-western Colorado are located in or at the margins of broad Tertiary basins. Interesting and possibly commercially significant occurrences are found in other Tertiary and older rocks at widely separated locations within this region. The six maps accompanying this report give the location, name, and ownership of the mines and occurrences from which samples assaying greater than 0.10% U3O8 have been collected. Claim names, location, and ownership are also given for occurrences outside the map areas."
