Title: Uranium industry annual 1998

Abstract

The Uranium Industry Annual 1998 (UIA 1998) provides current statistical data on the US uranium industry`s activities relating to uranium raw materials and uranium marketing. It contains data for the period 1989 through 2008 as collected on the Form EIA-858, ``Uranium Industry Annual Survey.`` Data provides a comprehensive statistical characterization of the industry`s activities for the survey year and also include some information about industry`s plans and commitments for the near-term future. Data on uranium raw materials activities for 1989 through 1998, including exploration activities and expenditures, EIA-estimated reserves, mine production of uranium, production of uranium concentrate, and industry employment, are presented in Chapter 1. Data on uranium marketing activities for 1994 through 2008, including purchases of uranium and enrichment services, enrichment feed deliveries, uranium fuel assemblies, filled and unfilled market requirements, and uranium inventories, are shown in Chapter 2. The methodology used in the 1998 survey, including data edit and analysis, is described in Appendix A. The methodologies for estimation of resources and reserves are described in Appendix B. A list of respondents to the ``Uranium Industry Annual Survey`` is provided in Appendix C. The Form EIA-858 ``Uranium Industry Annual Survey`` is shown in Appendix D. For the readersmore » convenience, metric versions of selected tables from Chapters 1 and 2 are presented in Appendix E along with the standard conversion factors used. A glossary of technical terms is at the end of the report. 24 figs., 56 tabs.« less

  • The Roundtable was created in 1984 to provide a unique forum for dialog among top government, university, and industry leaders of the national science and technology enterprise. The purpose is to facilitate personal working relationships and exchange of ideas regarding issues, problems, and promising opportunities that are facing those charged with developing and deploying science and technology resources. These annual reports begin by describing the purpose, structure, and mode of operation of the Roundtable. There follow sections devoted to the council activities, major projects, and follow-up planning, and the activities of the Roundtable working groups.

  • 'The goal of this research is to develop novel electrochemical sensors for in-situ environmental monitoring of trace uranium and chromium. Such innovative remote/submersible and micromachined stripping-based devices will greatly enhance the detection of trace metals in a field setting, and should revolutionize the way such contaminants are being monitored. This report summarizes activity over the first 1.5 years of a 3-year project. This effort has led to the replacement of conventional stripping electrochemical protocols and systems with new innovative strategies for field monitoring of trace uranium and chromium, based on remotely deployable submersible sensors and micromachined hand-held total stripping analyzers.more » Eventually, these developments will allow to move the measurement of these metals to the field and to perform them more rapidly, reliably and inexpensively. Improved Stripping Procedures for U and Cr Traditionally, Cr and U have been measured separately using the adsorptive accumulation of their complexes with DTPA and propyl gallate (PG), respectively. To facilitate their on-site detection, the authors have developed new adsorptive stripping protocols that allow the simultaneous and rapid detection of Cr and U down to low ppb concentrations. One such new scheme involves the use of a mixed ligand (DTPA/PG) solution that allows simultaneous trace measurements in a single run (1). Numerous experimental parameters were optimized to assure that the attractive performance of the individual single-element protocols are not compromised. Simultaneous measurements in groundwater samples were documented. Alternately, they employed a single but more universal ligand (cupferron) for the simultaneous monitoring of Cr and U (2). Under optimal conditions, competition of these metals for the ligand and coadsoprtion effects were minimized, and different concentrations of the mixture components can be tolerated. A major goal and focus of this project has been the development of a miniaturized stripping analytical system, produced by micromachining technology. Such new micromachined stripping analyzers -integrating all the sample manipulations steps (including complex formation) with the adsorptive stripping measurement--will require minimal amounts of sample and reagent and will result in faster and cheaper operations. The newly designed microsystem uses an arrangement of functional modules, stacked on top of each other (to form a miniaturized flow system), including the sample and ligand/reagent reservoirs, two micro/piezo pumps, mixer, reaction coil, a silicon-based electrochemical detector and a micropotentiostat. The detector has a flow-through channel with an array of iridium microelectrodes, along with reference and counter electrodes, prepared by a photolithographic process. The size of the modules is 24 x 24 mm{sup 2}. The complete pocket-size microanalyzer has been assembled and delivered. Preliminary results are very encouraging, with both trace (ppb) Cr and U yielding well-defined signals. Yet, there are still various technical challenges, such as limited stability of the microfabricated reference.'« less
  • 'The research objectives of this report are: (1) To develop an accurate personal radon/thoron monitor to quantitate exposure during remediation. This personal monitor is a miniaturization and modification of the area {sup 222}Rn monitor that has proven accuracy and precision. (2) To develop a personal aerosol particle size sampler, based on the principles of the novel sampler the author has developed. The sampler measures not only {sup 222}Rn decay product aerosol size but long lived nuclides. There are, as yet, no size distribution data on the aerosol particle size distribution of these nuclides during remediation, yet the aerosol particle sizemore » is the major determinant of lung dose. (3) To develop the sequential radiochemistry necessary to measure any environmental sample for {sup 228,230,232}Th, {sup 226,228}Ra, {sup 234,235,238}U and {sup 210}Pb. To utilize the radiochemistry to accurately trace and delineate these nuclides in the environment. To obtain historic and present radiochemical data to understand the need for supplemental soil/water etc. measurements.'« less
  • This report provides a statistical description of activities of the US uranium industry during 1984 and includes a statistical profile of the status of the industry at the end of 1984. It is based on the results of an Energy Information Administration (EIA) survey entitled ''Uranium Industry Annual Survey'' (Form EIA-858). The principal findings of the survey are summarized under two headings - Uranium Raw Materials Activities and Uranium Marketing Activities. The first heading covers exploration and development, uranium resources, mine and mill production, and employment. The second heading covers uranium deliveries and delivery commitments, uranium prices, foreign trade inmore » uranium, inventories, and other marketing activities. 32 figs., 48 tabs.« less
