Abstract A radiometric method for the quantitative analysis of naturally leached uranium-thorium ore samples is presented. Ordinary studied. The - method calcullations are done after the thorium oxide, ThO/sub 2/, concentration has been determined, utilizing the 2.6 Mev -photopeak from ThC''(Tl/sup 208/). Radiometric results of 24 samples are tabulated and agree well with chemical values for the uranium oxides U/sub 3/O/sub 8/, snd ThO/sub 2/ contents. When 18- gram samples are used, drift of the photopeak of thc 2.6Mev has been less than 0.5% per week. Variations of 5 C in a room temperature of 2l C had no effect on the stability of the apparatus.
