This page book discusses numerous occurrences and deposits of uranium and thorium in this three-state Rating: % positive. Thorium is a radioactive element that can be used in a new generation of nuclear reactors as an alternative source of fuel for the generation of electricity. A thorium-based fuel cycle is more proliferation resistant than conventional uranium-based reactors though there is still a degree of risk.

Abstract. Significant deposits of thorium occur throughout an area 7 miles long and 4 miles wide in the Lemhi Pass area of south-western Montana and east-central Idaho.

A small deposit of thorium has also been recently exposed in the Duck Creek area of Broadwater County, Montana. In the Lemhi Pass area, the thorium mineral, thorite, is found in quantz-hematite veins that cut quantzites of the Belt series.

Lifetime of Thorium Resources • Presently economic Th resources: t Th. • A MW reactor needs t Th in 40 years. • Presently installed world nuclear capacity (using enriched uranium): MW.

• If these MW would be replaced totally by Th-operated reactors World demand would be ~ t Th. Page - Uranium is closely associated with chalcedony in both types of veins. This association suggests that all of the uranium in the area is of the same age. If so, some of the silver-lead veins must have been reopened during the period of chalcedony vein formation.

EPA Facts about Thorium What is thorium. Thorium is a naturally occurring radioactive metal that is found at low levels in soil, rocks, water, plants, and animals.

Almost all naturally occurring thorium exists in the form of either radioactive isotope thorium, thorium, and thorium File Size: KB. Two thorium vein districts-the Lemhi Pass district of Montana-Idaho and the Wet Mountains area of Colorado (fig.

1)-dominate the known high-grade thorium reserves in the United States (table 2). thorium fuels in once-through nuclear fuel cycles, but in some projects closed thorium-uranium or thorium-plutonium fuel cycles are also considered.

Thorium fuel utilization, technical status and development needs were considered in detail by the INFCE Working Group 8 (). Some aspects of the thorium fuel cycle were considered at the. Nuclear Raw Materials: A Selected Bibliography United States.

Energy Research and Development Administration. Technical Information Center Full view - In many countries uranium and thorium are reported separately. In many countries uranium mining is regulated separately.

In some 'energy basins' U seen to occur with other energy fuels. Monazite contains % thorium, allanite has to 2% thorium and zircon can have up to % thorium. Thorium-containing minerals occur on all continents. Thorium is several times more abundant in Earth's crust than all isotopes of uranium combined and thorium is several hundred times more abundant than uranium Mindful of possible future limitations on the availability of uranium, the introduction of the thorium fuel cycle is potentially a complementary source of nuclear energy.

This publication assimilates current knowledge of thorium geology and mineralization into a brief account on the worldwide occurrence of thorium resources.

Key Difference – Thorium vs Uranium Both Thorium and Uranium are two chemical elements from actinide group, which have radioactive properties and function as energy sources in nuclear power plants; the key difference between Thorium and Uranium exists in their natural abundance.

Thorium is three times more abundant than Uranium in the Earth’s crust.This chapter contains a brief description of the wide variety of geological settings that host uranium deposits worldwide, and then a more specific description of known uranium occurrences in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

This latter section also notes the exploration status and a first-order indication of the exploitation potential of existing uranium resources in Virginia.
