TENORM Uranium Mining Residuals Radiation Protection

HistoryRegulationEPAs RoleThe earliest known use of uranium as a pigment dates to the Roman era, and for many years, it was used as a colorant in glasses, glazes, and dyes. The modern uranium mining industry, however, began in the 1940s, primarily to produce uranium for weapons. Most early uranium mines were converted from former vanadium or radium mining and processing sites. Since the 1970s, uranium has primarily been mined for use as nuclear fuel. Uranium mining during this period was conducted by physically removiOnline Service

(PDF) Hydrometallurgical removal of uranium and thorium

This paper addresses the development of a process to recovery uranium, thorium and rare earth elements from an industrial residue, with a subsequent removal of U and Th from the liquor generated.

Separation of thorium from uranium ore SpringerLink

Abstract. 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

Uranium 233 and thorium are coextracted into a tributyl phosphate solution, which is then contacted with an aluminum nitrate solution to remove traces of accompanying fission products. Dilute nitric acid is used to preferentially remove thorium from the scrubbed organic phase.

Regenerant waste from the uranium removal system is a concentrated form of the uranium and must be disposed of properly. For the homeowner, the spent solution is usually discharged the same way softener brine is discharged, the net amount of uranium reaching the disposal point is the same whether or not a uranium removal unit is in place.
