Economic Geology Principles and Practice: Metals, Minerals, Coal and Hydrocarbons - Introduction to Formation and Sustainable Exploitation of Mineral Deposits Walter L. Pohl(auth.) Humanity’s ever-increasing hunger for mineral raw materials, caused by a growing global population and ever increasing standards of living, has resulted in.

    Radioactivity in minerals are caused by the inclusion of naturally-occurring radioactive elements in the mineral’s composition. The degree of radioactivity is dependent on the concentration and isotope present in the mineral. For the most part, minerals that contain potassium (K), uranium (U), and thorium (Th) are radioactive. Thorianite is a rare thorium oxide mineral, ThO 2. It was originally described by Ananda Coomaraswamy in as uraninite, but recognized as a new species by Wyndham R. Dunstan. It was so named on account of its high percentage of thorium; it also contains the oxides of uranium, lanthanum, cerium, praseodymium and neodymium. Helium is present, and the mineral is slightly less radioactive .

    The book includes comprehensive descriptions of mining geology techniques, including conventional methods and new approaches. The attributes presented in the book can be used as a reference and as. The Department of Marine Geology collects and communicates geological knowledge about the Danish seabed. The geological model is the basic element for solving marine geological tasks within research, development and consultancy in Denmark and internationally. The main activity of GEUS’ marine geology is mapping of the seabed’s raw materials.

More information, table of contents. Hence the term industrial rocks and minerals includes a large number of raw materials and synthetic pro ducts, the most important of which are given in Ta ble 1 of Scott (). Uranium and thorium are the best known radioactive elements.

Minerals that contain these elements in their chemical structure will be radioactive. Radioactive minerals are unstable, meaning the elements in their structure continually break down. This destroys the mineral’s crystal lattice, causing it lose its crystal shape.

When this happens, its crystal edges become rounded, and the mineral. As stated by the author in this page book’s preface, the intention is to present “a systematic guide to uranium and thorium minerals and their occurrences for the serious student or mineral collector seeking to better understand the specimens in his or her collection.”.

Ibrahim Geologic and radiometric studies on Um Ara granite pluton, South East Aswan, Egypt. More than 80% of all raw materials that are used in various sectors of economy, society and environment are of mineral origin.

Their uses are in major construction projects like roads, railway tracks, airports, tunnels, canals, dam sites, high-rise buildings, industrial settlements, agriculture, jewelry, medicine and many more.

The book results from a unique international event which combined the 36th North American Forum on the geology of Industrial Minerals with the 11th UK Extractive Industry Geology Conference. Papers by leading experts from industry, consultancies, government bodies and academia, based in Europe, North America and elsewhere are included.

Clay minerals are typically fine-grained (4 μm) and constitute about 16% volume of material at the Earth's surface and are abundant in soils, sedimentary and low-grade metamorphic rocks and hydrothermal alteration zones.

"The book provides an extensive overview of natural resources and societal issues associated with extracting raw materials." (Economic Geology, August )"It is difficult to specify the readership that would benefit most from this book, but advanced students of economic geology, mining engineering and environmental studies would certainly find much of interest.
