Uranium and thorium in Late Proterozoic volcanic

Abstract The abundances of U and Th in the Late Proterozoic calc-alkaline volcanic rocks of northwest Africa which have undergone low-grade metamorphism, are highly variable. Dacites and rhyolites have higher contents of these elements than basic rocks although there is no obvious correlation of U and Th with SiO 2 . In the acidic rocks, U and Th are closely related to K, whereas in the basic ...

Uranium from Africa – An overview on past and

Plant bioaccumulation of uranium, thorium and radium was demonstrated at two field sites, where plant tissue concentrations reached up to 46.93 μg g −1 238 U, 0.67 μg g −1 232 Th and 18.27 kBq kg −1 226 Ra. High root retention of uranium was consistent in all plant species studied. In contrast, most plants showed greater bioaccumulation ...
