Dooley, J.C., 1945. Preliminary report on radioactivity tests on Radium Hill samples. Record  1945/031. Department of Supply and Shipping: Mineral Resources Survey, Canberra.

Abstract

The work described in this report forms part of the uranium investigation being conducted by the Commonwealth Government for the British Government. 94 samples from the Radium Hill workings, S.A., were submitted to the Mineral Resources Survey for determination of relative radioactivity, with a view to making estimates of their uranium content. After determinations were made a suite of these samples was selected and submitted for assay for uranium and thorium by the South Australian School of Mines. This report comprises a description of the equipment, procedure and calibration, along with a discussion of the specific problems associated with the ore, the random variations in count-rate, and the results of tests of the ore samples.
