Uranium contents in the six U.S. Geological Survey standard rocks together with JG-1 and JB-1, issued by the Geological Survey of Japan, have been analyzed by the technique of fission-track activation using a thin muscovite film placed over the sample to detect tracks from it. With a thin section of a rock sample, it is often observed that uranium distribution is not uniform as supposed from the pattern of fission-tracks registered in polycarbonate by thermal neutron induced fission of uranium… Expand
