2018-11-19 · In the case of thorium, thorium-232 is used, which is much more common in thorium ore than uranium-235 is in uranium. This is one of the reasons why thorium is considered a more durable potential source of nuclear fuel.
The analysis of ore samples indied thorium and uranium within 561–2501 μg g −1 and 25–911 μg g −1 with RSD 1.7–3.8% and 1.5–3.9% correspondingly. Thorium and uranium in fish samples were found below detection limit.

2017-8-25 · Uranium and thorium ore analysis The radioactive ore samples are made up of two series representing Turkey''s areas - KlZdca6ren in Eskijehir and Kfpriiba~i in Manisa. The thorium ore series from KlzdcaOren consists of four samples, identified as KTS-1, KTS-2, KTS-3,
Thorium is much more abundant in nature than uranium. Thorium can be used as a nuclear fuel through breeding to uranium-233 (U-233). When this thorium fuel cycle is used, much less plutonium and other transuranic elements are produced, compared with uranium fuel cycles. Several thorium-fuelled reactor concepts are under consideration.
Although this last article is dated 2007 it was released in late 2008 and is an analysis based on information gathered by the very conservative and through USGS throughout most of 2008. My “take” on thorium in 2009 is that it is most likely going to be the last natural element to become a
