Abstract  

High activities of radium were observed in the spring waters of Tuwa in Panchamahal district of Gujarat state. These determinations have led to further studies on geochemical behaviour of uranium in the surface sediments of this region. Labile uranium from the surface of the sediment particles is leached with saturated solution of ammonium carbonate. Uranium is chemically separated from the leachates by cellulose column chromatography. Unusually high activity ratios of234U/238U in the range of 2.3 to 2.77 were observed on the surface of the particles. The core of the particles exhibited a ratio of 1.00 indicating soluble234U fraction has migrated.
