AbstractThe quantitative determination of uranium in minerals and ores, based on the fluorescence emitted by uranyl fluoride when irradiated with ultraviolet light, has been extended to the analysis of gravity and chemical concentrates for uranium. Two important modifications to the previous method have been introduced. Firstly, a modified micropipette is used to minimise pipetting errors; and, secondly, a sufficiently large number of determinations is obtained to give a good statistical average. The method is rapid and simple. Interferences are usually negligible, but, if appreciable, can be eliminated by a simple separation. Good precision and accuracy can be attained.
