Flume experiments on permeability and organic matter as related to the genesis of uranium deposits in the Beaufort Group

Le Roux J.P. (1991)

The size, shape, and grade of uranium deposits in the Beaufort Group was controlled primarily by the distribution of plant debris and the permeability of the host sediments at the time of mineralization. A natural sand, similar to the mineralized sandstone, was studied under different hydrodynamic conditions in a flume to determine the causes of local variations in these two factors. The experimental results confirm certain field observations on the distribution of uranium in the Beaufort Group and provide insight into some of the underlying ore controls. -from Author
