Indian Uranium Deposits

Author(s): R. Dhana Raju

Book Description

This volume presents a comprehensive and systematic account of diverse types of Uranium (U-) deposits. It deals with the discovery and establishment of U-resources in a deposit by field- and laboratory-based geological, geophysical, petro-mineralogical and geochemical exploration. It also considers the drilling, mining and mineral processing of U-ore, its co- and by-products, and the creation of wealth from waste. The U-deposits discussed here are the granitoid-hosted and -sourced hydrothermal, unconformity-proximal, albitisation-related, palaeo-placer, sandstone and rare giant-size carbonate-hosted types.
