The primary modes of exposure were likely inhalation and ingestion, with entry through wounds also being possible during the processing of these metals.
Uranium, Radium, and Thorium Uranium, radium, and thorium occur in three natural decay series, headed by uranium-238, thorium-232, and uranium-235, respectively. In nature, the radionuclides in these three series are approximately in a state of secular equilibrium, in which the activities of all radionuclides within each series are nearly equal.

Uranium is a heavy, radioactive metal, the 92nd element in the periodic table, and a member of the actinide series. Its name and chemical symbol U are derived from the planet Uranus, discovered 1781 a few years before the element. A compound of uranium uranium oxide was discovered in the uranium ore pitchblende by M. H. Klaproth in 1789.

Unlike thorium which incorporation is easy and quantitative in the britholite structure, that of tetravalent uranium appears rather difficult even after heating at high temperature. Indeed, only about 3.5 wt of uranium instead of 10.3 wt expected are incorporated in the britholite structure when using a manual grinding of the initial mixture while it is increased to 5.9 wt when performing ...

articleosti4215009, title SEPARATION OF URANIUM FROM THORIUM AND PROTACTINIUM, author Musgrave, W K.R., abstractNote This patent relates to the separation of uranium from thorium and protactinium such mixtures of elements usually being obtained by neutron irradiation of thorium. The method of separating the constituents has been first to dissolve the mixture of elements
Oct 20, 2020 The Russian researchers report their work has optimized the mechanics behind extracting and then grinding these elements into a solution. Once the new process is complete and the elements are purified, researchers say 90 percent of the uranium and thorium and 100 percent of the REEs are freed from the monazite.
1.1 This test method covers the energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence EDXRF spectrochemical analysis of trace levels of uranium and thorium in soils.

from longer-lived radionuclides, source term estimates for natural uranium, uranium-238, thorium-230, radium-226, lead-210, and radon-222 provide a suffi cient base. Since the uranium-235 in natural uranium represents only about 0.7 of natural uranium,
Uranium-Thorium clockwork Uranium-Thorium dating is an absolute dating technique which uses the properties of the radio-active half-life of the two alpha emitters 238U and 230Th. The half-life of 238U is T 124,470,000,000 y. The half-life of 230Th is comparably short, only T 1275,380 y. When the amounts of uranium and thorium are compared ...
Dec 07, 2019 Thorium-230 has many research applications, but there is not a commercial source of this isotope. However, since 230 Th is part of the 238 U decay chain, it can be separated from naturally occurring uranium. In this work, a novel procedure was developed to separate thorium from uranium ore, consisting of leaching, liquidliquid extraction, precipitations and ion exchange chromatography.
Uranium or thorium compounds are substances or articles including uranium and thorium metals in which the U-235 concentration is no more than 0.72 by mass in the case of uranium, and the thorium is in its isotopic proportions found in nature.

Thorium is a naturally occurring, radioactive substance. In the environment, thorium exists in combination with other minerals, such as silica. Small amounts of thorium are present in all rocks, soil, water, plants, and animals.Soil contains an average of about 6 parts of thorium per million parts of soil 6 ppm. More than 99 of natural thorium exists in the form of thorium-232.
few locations the ore is processed without fine grinding, and the resultant tailings are transported in a nearly dry form to a waste disposal area. The specific radioactivity of uranium mill tailings is low. About 15 of the total radioactivity which was originally contained in the ore is retained in the yellow-cake produced by the mill.

Thorium 232. Thorium 232, which alone makes up nearly all natural thorium, is the most common isotope of thorium in the nature.This isotope has the longest half-life 1.4 x 10 10 years of all isotopes with more than 83 protons. In fact, its half-life is considerably longer than the age of earth. Therefore 232 Th belongs to primordial nuclides.. 232 Th decays via alpha decay into 228 Ra .
