Uranium Analysis

Maxxam offers four independent techniques for uranium analysis. All are accredited to ISO17025 by the Standards Council of Canada.

Available Analyses

Method Detection Range (%)
Gamma Spectrometry* .005 ↔ 5

*Calculated from Uranium isotope concentration

  • Can be used to check for secular equilibrium
  • Recommended for checking on high-grade samples
Method Detection Range (ppm)
Delayed Neutron Counting (DNC)** 0.5 ↔ 5000

**calculated from U-235 concentration

  • Can handle high-volume exploration programs

 

Method Detection Range (ppm)
Neutron Activation Analysis (NAA)† 0.2 ↔ 10000

† direct determination of U-238

  • Can handle high-volume exploration programs
  • Additional elements may be determined at the same time
Method Detection Range (ppm)
Alpha-Spectrometry‡ 1 ↔ 1000

‡ calculated from Uranium isotope concentration

  • Can be used to check uranium ratios

Total analysis for evaluation of results is available by other techniques – please inquire.
