For this IAEA Coordinated Research Project (CRP), Australia (ANSTO and Flinders University) investigated various nuclear forensic signatures in material from the front end of the nuclear fuel cycle. Australia has a particular interest in uranium ores and uranium ore concentrates (UOCs); it possesses the world’s largest easily minable resources of uranium bearing ore and is the world’s third-ranking producer of UOC, behind Kazakhstan and Canada. As a radioactive powder and the starting material for production of nuclear fuel, UOC is of high interest for nuclear forensics.
