Uranium

Becquerel Laboratories offers four independent techniques for assessment of the uranium content. All are accredited to ISO17025 by the Standards Council of Canada.

Available Analyses...

Method Detection Range (%)
Gamma Spectrometry* .005Range5
*Calculated from Uranium isotope concentration

  • Can be used to check for secular equilibrium see NORM
  • Recommended for checking on high-grade samples

Method Detection Range (ppm)
Delayed Neutron Counting (DNC)** 0.5Range5000
**calculated from U-235 concentration
  • Can handle high-volume exploration programs

Method Detection Range (ppm)
Neutron Activation Analysis (NAA)† 0.2Range10000
† direct determination of U-238
  • Can handle high-volume exploration programs
  • Additional elements may be determined at the same time see Au+33

Method Detection Range (ppm)
Alpha-Spectrometry‡ 1Range1000
‡ calculated from Uranium isotope concentration

Total analysis for evaluation of results is available by other techniques - please inquire.


 

 

Evaluation of Uranium

"We can use four unique techniques to determine the total uranium content in exploration samples and to confirm results in the per cent level. Analysis of the different isotopes can determine if the uranium is enriched or depleted."
