Spatial distribution of ore deposits Geology

The distribution of these ore deposits about a known occurrence follows a regular radial-density law. Within a range of radii (r) of 1 to 15 km, the probability-density function of these deposits is given by d = 0.46 r-1.17, and within a range of radii of 15 to 1000 km, by d = 0.08 r-0.83 where d is deposits per square kilometre.

Locations of Deposits

Other deposits include hematite-breccia complex deposits, magmatic-hydrothermal uranium in iron-oxide Cu-Au deposits and quartz-pebble conglomerate deposits (World Nuclear, 2010). Thorium is mined in conjunction with uranium, so much that estimates of reserves for these elements are made based off of uranium content.
