Abstract

A suite of samples of pitchblende, clausthalite, and galena from various mines in the Lake Athabasca uranium province has been subjected to isotopic and chemical analyses as well as radon-leakage measurements in order to obtain apparent ages from the isotopic ratios Pb (super 206) /U (super 238) , Pb (super 207) /U (super 235) , and Pb (super 207) /Pb (super 206) . Pb (super 210) /Pb (super 206) measurements were made to check equilibrium in the decay series.
