The book put forth an fairly interesting history of the use of Uranium. Discussion of the science behind using Uranium for weapons or energy was clear and mostly concise.

The Chattanooga shale is recognized as a major world uranium province, with estimated reserves of 5, t of uranium, but there has been no commercial production. Internationally, uranium has been produced from organic-rich shale, in Sweden and Germany.

Uranium ore deposits are economically recoverable concentrations of uranium within the Earth's crust. Uranium is one of the more common elements in the Earth's crust, being 40 times more common than silver and times more common than gold. It can be found almost everywhere in rock, soil, rivers, and oceans.

CHATTANOOGA SHALE AREA E E 3 a a u uranium requires oxidation prior to dis solution. In the presence of pyrite, themechanism of solution appear to be: 2FeS2 +7/ H20 = Fe2(S04)3 + H2S04 U02 + Fe2(S04)3 = U02S04 + 2FeS04 4FeS04 +2H2S04 02 = 2Fe2.

One of the largest potential sources of low-grade uranium ore is the Chattanooga shale--a formation in Tennessee and neighboring states that has not been mined conventionally because it is expensive and environmentally disadvantageous to do so.

This report describes the lithology, mineralogy, and uranium-related chemistry of a uraniferous black shale deposit in Marion County. At the time of its discovery, the samples of Chattanooga shale from this site yielded the highest values of uranium for black shale in the United States.

The most common sedimentary rock type is known as shale, made up of tiny silt or clay particles cemented together. Tiny particles are easily carried along by moving water. Thus, in uniformitarian thinking, shale particles take an inordinate amount of time to fall through a column of water and settle on the bottom, even when the water is completely calm.

Once within the marine environment, the material probably absorbed uranium with the formation of organo-uranium compounds such as exist in coals. It is suggested that a more systematic search for germaniferous coals in the vicinity of the Chattanooga shale and the Cleveland member of the Ohio shale might be rewarding.

more uranium, but such shales are less extensive, thinner, or are deeply buried. The reader is referred to papers by Brown (p.this volume), Conant (p. this volume), and Hass () for more detailed descriptions of the Chattanooga shale. The Chattanooga shale in Tennessee, Kentucky, and Alabama is the generally more radioactive part of.

Notice that the SGR (and potassium and thorium contents) are very similar in the two shale units, and that the difference is in the uranium linked with the kerogen content.

In most black shales, such as the Chattanooga Shale and related shales of the eastern interior United States, increased metal and metalloid contents are generally related to increased organic carbon content, decreased sedimentation rate, organic matter type, or position in the basin.

Chattanooga shale also contains a significant amount of pyrite (FeS2 Iron Sulfide) also known as fools gold because of it’s color, which can resemble gold. When the Chattanooga Shale erodes, it releases sulfur into streams, increasing the water’s acidity.

Chattanooga Shale also contains uranium and has been considered a low-grade vast. notes. the three lithologic units of the gassaway member of the chattanooga shale contain the most uranium, and the upper unit is the richest.

the chattanooga shale is considered as a low-grade oil shale, but it was not tested for its oil content at this locality. The Chattanooga Shale is a geologic formation in Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Missouri and preserves conodont fossils dating to the Devonian Period.
