Apr 29, 2008 The first consignment of Steenkampskraal monazite ore was then exported from South Africa to the United Kingdom as a source of thorium. At about the time surface mining of monazite ore waned in early 1952, a crosscut from a vertical shaft located on the Steenkampskraal koppie intersected the ore body about 30 m below the surface

3. ORE PROCESSING The ore processing of monazite is well established and is quite similar to the ore processing of uranium. The first step in the process is the concen-tration of the ore. This is done by passing the ore over an electromagnetic separator, using monazite's paramagnetic properties, to obtain a product which contains more than 95%

Nuclear Power in South Africa | South African Nuclear

Uranium production in South Africa has generally been a by-product of gold or copper mining. In 1951, a company was formed to exploit the uranium-rich slurries from gold mining and in 1967 this function was taken over by Nuclear Fuels Corporation of South Africa (Nufcor), which in 1998 became a subsidiary of AngloGold Ltd, now Anglo Gold Ashanti

Thorium-based nuclear power - Wikipedia

Thorium-based nuclear power generation is fueled primarily by the nuclear fission of the isotope uranium-233 produced from the fertile element thorium.A thorium fuel cycle can offer several potential advantages over a uranium fuel cycle — including the much greater abundance of thorium found on Earth, superior physical and nuclear fuel properties, and reduced nuclear waste production

Australian Uranium - Thorium

Large thorium resources are found in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Greenland (Denmark), India, South Africa, and the United States. The primary sources of the world’s thorium are the rare-earth and thorium phosphate mineral monazite deposits. In the United States, thorium has been a byproduct of refining monazite for its rare-earth content
