New Mexico has world class uranium deposits in the Grants district and ranks 2nd in uranium reserves in the United States, which amounts to 64 million short tons of ore at % U 3 O 8 ( million pounds U 3 O 8) at $50/lb (according the the U.S. Department of Energy).However, approximately million pounds of uranium resources remain in the Grants district as . Further studies of the distribution of uranium in rich phosphate beds of the Phosphoria formation. Author Thompson, M. E., author. Online Resource Book Published [Washington, D.C.]: [United States Department of the Interior, Geological Survey], Glossary of uranium- and thorium-bearing minerals. Frondel, Judith W. (Judith Weiss), 1 U 3 0 8 is the symbol for a chemical compound, uranium oxide, composed of three atoms of uranium to eight atoms of oxygen. Most chemical assays for uranium are expressed in terms of U 3 0 8, and ore purchases are made on that uranium content equals approximately 85 per cent of the assay expressed in terms of U 3 0 8. 2 Hardness of minerals is related to . The most important minerals of uranium are: uraninite UO 2 + UO 3, carnotite K 2 (UO 2) 2 (VO 4) 2 2H 2 O, brannerite (UTi 2 O 6), coffinite (USiO 4 nH 2 O), and uranophane (H 3 O)Ca[UO 2][SiO 4] 2 [1, 2]. Uranium is also found in phosphate rocks, lignite, monazite sands and can be recovered commercially from these sources. An important Cited by:

Thorium is a highly radioactive element and could be used as a replacement for uranium in nuclear power generation. It is estimated to be three times as common as uranium and all the thorium in the Earth's crust could have more potential energy than both uranium and the fossil fuel reserves combined.

Uraninite is the most important radioactive mineral, and was once thought to be worthless. When the discovery of its useful uranium content was unveiled, it became extremely significant.

It is the most common and widespread uranium mineral, making it the best known uranium collectors refrain from collecting uranium minerals such as Uraninite because of their. to minerals, energy resources, renewable energy, injection projects for geological storage and anthropogenic resources.

It was originally described by Ananda Coomaraswamy in as uraninite, but recognized as a new species by Wyndham R. Dunstan. It was so named on account of its high percentage of thorium; it also contains the oxides of uranium, lanthanum, cerium, praseodymium and ry: Oxide mineral.

Learn about the geochemical conditions that produce significant ore deposits and view more than. Thorium (Th) is a radioactive metallic element that, until the 's, was known only by chemists and physicists. It is not abundant, but major supplies are in sands rich in monazite.

Commercially, monazite is recovered as a by-product of the processing of titanium-bearing heavy-mineral. Thorium-bearing minerals are rare. Thorium is a trace element associated with clays and heavy minerals.

It is very immobile so that quantity measured today probably was present at the time of deposition. A log of thorium is presented in parts per million.

It is often a. Thorite is named for its pdf of the rare element thorium. It is isomorphous with Zircon and occurs in pdf same crystal habits. Thorite is the most prevalent mineral containing the radioactive element thorium. However, it is not as important as the primary thorium ore, Monazite, since the extraction process of the ore from Thorite is more difficult then that of Monazite.What is the difference between Uranium and Thorium?
