Abstract: Development of Geophysical Techniques for Uranium Assessment

Peter Alexander

The National Uranium Resource Evaluation (NURE) Program of the Energy Research and Development Administration (ERDA) should result in the determination of characteristics of favorability for uranium deposits and assist in the uranium-resource assessment of the United States. The NURE program incorporates among its elements a technology-development effort which consists of several facets. These include technology development in geochemistry, remote sensing, mining/metallurgy, and geophysics. The geophysical technology development program at present is further advanced than the others and is grouped into several areas. These are: (1) airborne technology, to develop methods for rapid survey of large areas for uranium deposits; (2) emanometry technology, to develop methods to locate deeply buried ore deposits; (3) direct U-measurement technology, to develop methods for the direct measurement of uranium; (4) KUT technology, to develop improved means for gamma-ray spectral measurement of low-grade uranium deposits; (5) nonnuclear technology, to develop and adapt nonnuclear techniques for use in uranium exploration and assessment.
