Abstract

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.
