Abstract  

The paper describes the results and observations on the analyses of uranium in calcium fluoride slag, silica cake and fused salt cake obtained in uranium metal and fuel plants. The analysis is done by (1) non-destructive assay by passive gamma ray counting, (2) chemical analysis, and (3) solid state nuclear track detector (SSNTD) technique. The details of the development of NDA method to suit the requirements of the sample are given. The difficulties encountered in chemical assay are described. SSNTD method has been applied to such materials for the estimation of the uranium for the first time. A simple scheme for the recovery of uranium and the salt mixture from the fused salt cake is also described.
