Mining Uranium Thorium

2020317Underground mining. Underground uranium mining is in principle no different from any other hard rock mining and other ores are often mined in association e.g. copper gold silver. The uranium ore is extracted through mechanical means such as blasting drilling pneumatic drilling picks and shovels and then transported to the surface.

Thorium World Nuclear Association

Thorium is much more abundant in nature than uranium. Thorium can be used as a nuclear fuel through breeding to uranium233 U233. When this thorium fuel cycle is used much less plutonium and other transuranic elements are produced compared with uranium fuel cycles. Several thoriumfuelled reactor concepts are under consideration.

2020314Thorium is not a fissile material and cannot either start or sustain a chain reaction. Therefore a reactor using thorium would also need either enriched uranium or plutonium to initiate the chain reaction and sustain it until enough of the thorium has converted to fissile uranium U233 to sustain it. Using plutonium sets up proliferation risks.
