Abstract  

A series of leaching experiments with HF, HCl, HNO3 were carried out on samples of uranium minerals (uraninite and carnotite samples). Anomalously high234U/238U ratios were observed in some uranium fractions. The observed234U/238U activity ratios varied between the values of 1.019±0.155 and 6.210±0.504 (Ci/Ci), while the bulk carnotite sample had an activity ratio of 1.010±0.005 (Ci/Ci). These results are interpreted as due to alpha-recoil effect and changes in oxidation state of uranium.
