In-situ production of natural 236U in groundwaters and ores in high-grade uranium deposits
In nature, primordial 236U has long since decayed to concentrations below detection. However, measurement of 236U produced in-situ by neutron capture on 235U in high-grade uranium deposits is made possible by recent advances in accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS). The detection of appreciable quantities of 236U in groundwaters may reflect local uranium mineralisation, and thus prove useful in uranium exploration and potential age and ore grade estimations.Nine mineralised sediments from the...[Show more]
