Standard Test Methods for Chemical and Atomic Absorption Analysis of Uranium-Ore Concentrate


1.1 These test methods cover procedures for the chemical and atomic absorption analysis of uranium-ore concentrates to determine compliance with the requirements prescribed in Specification C 967.

1.2 The analytical procedures appear in the following order:

Uranium by Ferrous Sulfate Reduction-Potassium Dichromate Titrimetry9
Nitric Acid-Insoluble Uranium10 to 18
Extractable Organic Material19 to 26
Arsenic by Diethyldithiocarbamate (Photometric Method)27 to 36
Carbonate by CO2 Gravimetry37 to 43
Fluoride by Ion-Selective Electrode44 to 51
Halides by Volhard Titration52 to 59
Moisture by Loss of Weight at 110°C60 to 66
Phosphorus by Spectrophotometry67 to 75
Silicon by Gravimetry76 to 82
Thorium by the Thorin (Photometric) Method83 to 91
Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Molybdenum, Titanium, and Vana-dium by Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry92 to 101
Potassium and Sodium by Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry102 to 111
Boron by Spectrophotometry112 to 121
